    I'm losing the plot,
    It's taken me ages to complete the lessons and write up the notes and I'm doing the home work and I have to put a √ symbol in. IT WONT DO IT. I'm so angry.
    I'm having to access my maths through Puffin Academy as I only have an iPad and I've tried:
    - creating a shortcut on my keyboard so I type "root" and it changes it to √, but as soon as I go on my maths it won't work.
    -copy and pasting doesn't work either.
    I'm frustrated as it changes the questions I think too so what do i do? How can I get a √ there?
    Can someone also tell me how to put the √ sign in on a normal computer because I think I'm going to have to try and do it at college.

    Is there not a button somewhere that puts in a square root for you, if the root is not already embedded into the page?
