This course is designed around a textbook written by George Gr├Ątzer, entitled More Math Into LATEX. I do encourage you to buy this book, but for now you might just want to download the free online version [7.2 MB]. Certainly if you want to continue learning how to use LATEX here at mathography.org, you absolutely need this online textbook as we will follow and cover this complete online edition.

LATEX is based on Don Knuth's Tau Epsilon Chi [TEX] and is widely considered the best way to prepare highly technical documents involving mathematics. I know when I first encountered LATEX I was a bit frightened by the cryptic looking code, but once you get beyond the initial shock you'll be creating spiffy looking mathography that will impress and leave a lasting impression on those that see it. Really, it's that good.

So for now, download the Math_into_LaTeX-4.zip package and expand it. Once expanded you will find a folder (directory) called "Math_into_LaTeX-4" which will have a load of files within it, and you'll need to open Short_Course.pdf and move to the next step.
