Welcome to the WSU Math Department’s Discourse discussion forum, a place where students can ask questions and have conversations about their mathematics coursework.

Students that are enrolled in the classes that are hosted on this server can sign up *via* a private link sent to your email from your instructor. Once enrolled, students should find their class’s “category,” then start browsing the “topics”!

Have you handwritten something and want to ask a question about it? Take a picture with your phone and upload it using the image button in the reply toolbar:

If you’re typing math, you’ll use Mathjax/LaTeX. For example, to type f(x) = x^2-4x+4, you’ll type $f(x) = x^2-4x+4$. Always include the opening and closing dollar signs around math.

A really neat piece of advice is that you can always right-click on any math in a post and find its source code Right click → Show Math As → TeX Commands.

If you’re unsure what to write, you can draw it with your stylus or mouse at this site and it’ll guess what you mean.

It’ll take some practice, but you’ll get the hang of it. Plus, it will be *a lot* more understandable by your classmates to write the math statements correctly. If you ever have any questions, definitely ask!
