As example (I changed the dollar signs to S):
S \dfrac 3 2 \dfrac d v - \dfrac d v = \dfrac 5 2 S

what I "see" is:
"undefined control sequence \ dfrac"
...all in shining yellow colored background!!

Refreshing page and/or swearing like a sailor don't help

$\displaystyle \frac{{dy}}{{dx}} = \frac{{\Delta y}}{{\Delta x}} = \frac{{\delta y}}{{\delta x}} \ne \frac{{{\partial ^2}\Omega }}{{\partial {u^2}}}$

Try swearing properly, like a Marine.

What do you see of this?

Before refreshing it looks like this, indefinitely.

After refreshing, then waiting 48 seconds, the forum software deigns to "load Mathjax" and it looks like the second pic.

I see that clearly...no problems...

Perhaps you are not entering the correct code for this forum's implementation?

This is the actual code I entered.

I have removed the initial and final square bracket to prevent it rendering.


math]\frac{{dy}}{{dx}} = \frac{{\Delta y}}{{\Delta x}} = \frac{{\delta y}}{{\delta x}} \ne \frac{{{\partial ^2}\Omega }}{{\partial {u^2}}}[/math

Note how the forum software has changed the mathml indicators to something else in the screenshot.

Yer missing my point: I don't use latex: this happens when I look at posts where latex has been used...
I first see 'em in latex format (with the \$); a few seconds later, after the "formatting",
instead of seeing the equation in all its f'n glory, I see that "yellow" phenomenon
I described....got it??

Btw, if I replace your [math] with \$, it still works the same...

My 2 cents:

1. The biggest critique is to get rid of the "typing" of each character. This was absolutely dreadful and despite the video being less than 2 minutes, I almost closed it anyway. You should just display the full text, or if you like, uncover it accompanied by a voiceover.

2. If the ideal audience for this video is lower level math, then you might want to include a scalar example where speed and velocity differ. For example, a person's speed when driving to and from a place is positive, whereas for velocity one of these should be negative.

Oh man, so true. It makes this unbearable to watch.

First, you can wrap the entire code inside "noparse" tags:
[math]3 \times 6[/math]

$\displaystyle 3 \times 6$

Second, why are you using {{ }} ? [math]\frac{dy}{dx}[/math] gives $\displaystyle \frac{dy}{dx}$.

Good point, but how about a runner on a circular running track, keeping a constant speed but having a constantly changing velocity as she runs around the track?
