Fundamental Theorem of Calculus from Anton, Bivens, Davis

Fundamental Theorem of Calculus from Anton, Bivens, Davis

We will meet again on Thursday, October 3, 3:30-4:30 in STRGT 220. There is no agenda, just bring your questions. If there are no questions I will show you some things I came across in my early "TeX-ing."

**More Math into LaTeX**(4th ed.) by George Gratzer. It is $57 at Amazon and might be worth your while if you want to be come a serious TeX user. From time to time I will follow things in it and pass them along to you.

Copy and paste this into your editor:

\documentclass{amsart}

\begin{document}

The hypotenuse is $\sqrt{a^{2}+b^{2}}$

A source file is made up of text, math (e.g. $\sqrt{5}$, and \emph{ instructions to}\LaTeX.

\end{document}

As you can see, you have regular text, math (set off by dollar signs) and instructions to TeX, started by a backslash. You can see what the above instructions do.

My first question? What about a line break?

\newline or \\

Second question. What if I do not want an indentation at the beginning?

\noindent

Once you have signed into the blog you can post your own experiments and questions.

Google is your friend. PC users may want to look at

Eventhough he says "lah tex instead of "lay tex" ;-)

How do you find math symbols? See an earlier post Ted Sundstrom's LaTeX Blog Entry or http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Mathematics

or use Google.

If you bring your laptop, we will go through these installations at the first meeting. They are both pretty darn easy.

Each installation includes a text editor: TeXworks for Windows and TeXshop for Mac.

After we get everyone up and running, we will play around and create some basic mathematics documents.
