## About this page

This page is mostly meant to be a reference for my students, so that they can effectively use $\LaTeX$ to typeset their homework and to write mathematics in thes in Moodle.

For information on using $\LaTeX$ via ScribTeX or installing $\LaTeX$ on your own computer, go to the bottom of this page.
