This introduction provides all the tools needed to make common documents in LaTeX, including problem sets and lab reports. No familiarity with LaTeX is assumed. (However, it is necessary to have a working LaTeX installation. Please see the Installation Guide.)
Topics will include: the structure of LaTeX documents, basic formatting and document layout, math in LaTeX, how to use packages, and more. The workshop will also overview good writing and style for technical documents.
These workshops will cover a selection of more intermediate-level LaTeX topics. Topics include: Math and Thesis writing, TikZ package (for making graphics inside LaTeX), Presentation with Beamer. Each workshop will also have a few rotating topics based on audience interests, such as making chemical equations.
