Read more →Part of a series of incremental assignments designed to help students learn LaTeX, this assignment by Craig Desjardins asks students to make a figure of their choice and include it in a LaTeX document. The assignment is loosely specified, so this assignment will work best in a class of self-motivated learners.

Read more →Guidance from Steven Kleiman for how to write a math paper, written for a now defunct writing requirement but with much good general guidance. Because the guidance is written in the form of a journal article, the text file can act as a template for students to use to create their own papers. This zip file includes supporting style files (from M.I.T.’s Undergraduate Journal of Mathematics, no longer in publication). Before use, the extensions for math2e and thmp2e must be changed from .txt to .sty

Read more →Context: This lesson plan is from a weekly communication recitation that accompanies M.I.T.’s Real Analysis. This week students learn about power series and the fundamental theorem of algebra (Rudin pp. 83-86). Authors: This recitation was developed by Joel B. Lewis, Craig Desjardins, Todd Kemp, Mia Minnes, Mohammed Abouzaid, Peter Speh, Kyle Ormsby, and Susan Ruff. Communication objectives: Be aware of the tools available for placing LaTeXed labels on figures, using LaTeX to create slides, managing bibliographies. Be aware of the challenges of giving slide presentations vs chalk talks. Recitation Kyle Ormsby created a beamer slide presentation on creating beamer files,

What programs are best for including LaTeXed labels in figures? There are many options, but none yet seem to be ideal for undergraduates. If you have new information or relevant experience with any of these, please feel free to contribute to this page. The following options have been suggested. For those that have been tried in the classroom, instructor comments have been included. Make LaTeX label separately and import into generic illustration program LaTeX

Read more →LaTeX is the “industry standard” for producing readable mathematics (and is also in common, but not universal, use in other technical and scientific fields). As a result, being able to use LaTeX to produce and modify documents is an important element of mathematical communication. The following resources can help students to get started with LaTeX. Resources Getting Started with LaTeX This 2 page handout and template is for students who are about to embark on their first LaTeX-based assignment. (From M.I.T.’s communication-intensive offering of Analysis.) To easily find the TeX code for a symbol, use Detexify. Draw the symbol you
