Auto-Latex Equations is a Google Docs add-on that allows any Google Docs user to type mathematical equations inside their documents. Auto-Latex Equations uses MathJax and LaTeX-style syntax and functions similar to the Art of Problem Solving math typesetting. It can be downloaded from the Google Docs Add-on Store for free.[1] The first version of Auto-Latex Equations was released in 2015. The original programmer, designer, and marketer of Auto-Latex Equations is Aayush Gupta, a student at MIT.[2]


Auto-Latex Equations is used by teachers, professors, and students worldwide. [3][4] Due to its free status and integration with Google Docs, it is used in various universities and school districts primarily for math teachers to quickly create math lessons, tests, and other material for students.[5][6] Because it is easy to collaborate on teaching materials, it is also used to write technical material such as thesis rough drafts or technical papers. [7][8]

Due to its similarity to Art of Problem Solving LaTeX syntax and Mathtype for Word syntax, it is a useful alternative for those who value the sharability of Google Docs. It is one of the few editors that doesn't require setup beyond a single click, allowing it to be used as a general math equations editor. [9] [10]
