There are many versions of TeX and places to download TeX. We will concentrate on MiKTeX (for Windows users) and MacTeX for Mac users.There are links to both at CTAN, the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network: http://www.ctan.org/starter. Another useful site is the TeX Users Group page: http://www.tug.org/

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.

Mac users, the install is over 2.5 GB, so be patient.
