What would make Kahoot! more awesome?

Support display of mathematical notation via MathJax or similar

For example http://www.mathjax.org/ would allow having math equations in the question or answers.

    I concur that this would be incredibly useful. I used Kahoot! so many times when teaching math, and having a way to typeset equations (rather than just finagling with superscripts and subscripts) would help so much.

    Something to keep in mind is that the character limit might need to be increased if using LaTeX, since a fraction like 1/2 properly is typeset as \frac{1}{2}, for example. Or for another example, using a ∞ symbol only takes one character, whereas typing \infty to put it inside another expression takes six.

    MathJax support would be really awesome for any math quizzes. Is this idea still checked or has it been given up? How hard would it be to implement MathJax supoort? There are other platforms for quizzes with MathJax support (like TaskBase), but none of them as fun for pupils like Kahoot. So please, put in the effort if it can be done!

    Would save me lots of time...! I would definetily prefer LaTeX. But anything goes!

    Absolutely!! Kahoot! Titles are not always very descriptive of the quiz question content, although some Kahoots creators do add a few extra words of description. I'd like to add my own labels concerning content, grade level, difficulty, etc. Would also like to have folders for organizing them.

    You need to add more symbols into kahoot. I am making a kahoot for a math project and I need to use questions with pi and other math symbols. Most of the math symbols in the extra feature (shown by the omega sign) are very high level or basically has no use whatsoever.

    It would be great to be able to annotate kahoots (e.g. to say which are harder / easier for different levels of students, or to note words that you'd need to preteach etc) - just visible to you so you could see them when you look through your saved kahoots

    Ability to type in more math symbols including square root.

    I'd like to be able to put in more complicated math symbols. It be great to be compatible with MathType.

    Please please! In Maths we're always look for ways to increase engagement and Kahoot! is the perfect tool. Having support for mathematical notation would make a HUGE impact.

    I teach math and my students love this, but I wish you guys had a equation editor to make the problems and answers easier to read.

    Please do this. The math stuff you have now is almost entirely useless.
