# Terminology: Unit

In AlgebraKiT, a unit is referring to a unit of measurement, which is a definite magnitude of a quantity.

As an author, you do not have to worry about the different forms of notation of common (SI) units, this is automatically recognised by AlgebraKiT.

For the algebra interaction, more advanced unit settings are available.

##### Example

$€10$ is interpreted by AlgebraKiT as a quantity for currency, with € the accounting unit. The quantity is representing ten euros. Whether the student writes $€10$, $10 \ euro$ or $10\ Euro$, does not matter.
