What you will learn

The workshop will begin with an overview of what \(\LaTeX\) is and how it works. This will be followed by a demonstration of the basics using Overleaf. The remaining time will be used to cover applications and more advanced usage. Some the things that will be covered throughout the workshop are listed below...

After attending this workshop you will know how to correctly pronounce \(\LaTeX\).

Learn how to typeset mathematics beautifully. This is not only seen in \(\LaTeX\) itself, it is also integrated within many other systems such as RMarkdown and Facebook messenger.

Perfectly aligned equals signs: \[\begin{align} \int_0^1x\,\mathrm{d}x&=\left[\frac{x^2}{2}\right]_0^1\\ &=\left[\frac{1}{2}-0\right]\\ &=\frac{1}{2} \end{align}\] Matrices, free of imperfection: \[ \begin{bmatrix}1&0\\0&1\end{bmatrix} \] Summation operators beyond compare: \[ \sum\limits_{n=0}^\infty R^n=\frac{1}{1-R} \] And much more...
