LaTeX is a typesetting system for the educator who wants to create documents with beautifully typeset mathematics. It is free, available for all major platforms, and cross-platform compatible.

In this workshop, we will introduce participants to LaTeX, and then demonstrate how to typeset a variety of documents (e.g., tests or presentations). We are happy to tailor the demonstration to answer any specific questions raised by participants.

Please bring your laptop to get hands-on experience.
