Intro to LaTeX


This is a very basic introduction to LaTeX, a markup language for document preparation. LaTeX is a popular and widely loved way of writing not only scientific and mathematical papers, but for creating beautiful documents on many types. LaTeX gives users a lot of power over their documents, but has a bit of a learning curve. This workshop is designed to give you a leg up on that!
