[Tex/LaTex] Make equations large


I'm including some equations in my document, but want them to appear very large. I have them in display mode, as opposed to inline mode, but can't seem to find any way to make them larger.

I've tried using \huge but that seems to make all of the text in that section large (even when using it with {'s).

Is there a simple way to do this?

Two thoughts come to mind.

Put a \scalebox command from the graphicx package

\[ \scalebox{2}{$\displaystyle 2 + 2 = 4$} \]

will make an equation twice as big as normal. \displaystyle forces the same display needed under \[...\], since $...$ would normally use \textstyle (cause operators to act differently).

Another option would be to use the \mathlarger and \mathsmaller commands from the relsize package.

I'm sure there are other options too.
