# Math Symbols on MacOS

• 1 min read

I've been studying discrete math and I've never used math symbols that much in my life, at least using computers. This is a very short article on how I use math symbols on MacOS.

- type
`control`

+`cmd`

+`Space`

(or`⌃`

+`⌘`

+`Space`

) - search for the math symbol
- click
`enter`

Video example on how I do it:

### Symbols Table

A table for the symbols and how you can search for the them.

What to search for | Symbol |
---|---|

`double-struck capital z` |
ℤ |

`element of` |
∈ |

`subset of or equal to` |
⊆ |

`neither a subset of nor equal to` |
⊈ |

`right tack` |
⊢ |

Or go to the System Preferences on the Keyboard section and check the `Show input menu in menu bar`

.

Now you can show it while typing in your keyboard. So if you need to type π (pi), you can click `⌥`

(Option) and see all the possibilities in the keyboard viewer.
