I would like to distribute some worksheet to student and collegue to show how SageMath is versatile. But I need to inlcude comments. I would prefer to typeset them in LaTeX, because the notebooks will be more pleasant. I have tried

show(LatexExpr("Hello world!))

but on my computer this doen't works. Is there a way to do that ?

A $\LaTeX$ file can be compiled as a PDF, readable with almost anything. A worksheet needs a running Sage installation to be used... unless you export it to PDF.

So where is the point of the worksheet ?

On a code cell, show(LatexExpr("\sqrt{2}")) just works. Perhaps did you forget the closing quotes.

Note that you can add longer text by changing the type of a cell to "markdown" (instead of "code"), there, you can just add latex code as $\sqrt{2}$.
