Sure, they all do pretty much exactly the same thing.
The power of LaTeX is in the code itself, frontends don't really matter.

The boredofstudies LaTeX formatting is different from traditional LaTeX, don't use the formatting on this site as guidelines.
Instead, just look up LaTeX tutorials, there are many.
How do you type up inequality signs?
So I have two questions.
1. When I was watching the Latex guide by the UNSW Mathsoc guy, he used the following packages:
I know there's a massive amount of packages, but does anyone have suggestions on which ones I'll need to write a comprehensive set maths notes? Sort of a mini textbookCode:\usepackage{amsmath} % Improves structure of typed out maths \usepackage{mathtools} % Improves upon deficiencies of amsmath package \usepackage{amssymb} % Adds some handy symbols to use. \usepackage{amsthm} % Adds some neat formulas to use, e.g. \begin{proof} etc. % Below are other packages I suggest you add \usepackage{geometry} % Default page margins can be altered. \usepackage{microtype} % Improves spacing between letters. \usepackage{booktabs} % Improves tables. Can now create without vertical separators. \usepackage{array} % Includes more options for arrays \usepackage{paralist} % More flexible use of itemize, enumerate, etc. \usepackage{graphicx} % Add images to your document \usepackage{color} % Allows for the use of colours! \usepackage{cleveref} % Better cross-referencing \usepackage{hyperref} % For adding hyperlinks \usepackage{fancyhdr} % Customise headers & footers in document
2. Is there any way to generate very neat graphs?
Like, I could just copy and paste loads of images off WolframAlpha, GeoGebra, (Mac OS) Grapher and so on, but that's going to appear untidy. Plus sometimes they will still have x and y coordinates present and I don't want that.
Thanks
I'd be interested to see how you load the files onto LaTeX.
Is there any software that you recommend downloading to type text in?

I downloaded texmaker today. It's pretty cool
Im looking to compose my own notes for a university unit that I attended before, and Im not sure if you have heard of Kopy Stop but they seem to have their own version of notes that they sell. (Kopy Stop charges around $15 for notes for alot of the maths units )
I must admit , it does seem a very profitable business, provided the notes are of a good standard.

My bad, the maths notes unit reader range from $21-$29 , not the $15 as mentioned.

If your a keen student, you would use and buy set of notes which can give you any advantage over other students.

I'll also admit I sometimes buy notes off the StudentVIP website, from D or HD students.
Also find that pretty helpful. The only downside is sometimes your paying $29 for about 16 pages worth of course notes.

English was never my strong point but I will try to get better at it.
Want to try and get my English up to an Advanced level. I'll be honest I have tutored 3 English Advanced students in the past, 2 of them I tutored lasted 1 session and the other was from a Bangladesh family background who saw my ad listed online. I was asked to analyze and come up some comparison of texts in relation to Othello. I am shit at English.

actually speaking about it now, I tutored a Knox Grammar student , as well for 1 lesson. If you go to a selective or Grammar school in Sydney, your English is alot more coherent and posh.

Oh these aren't for my own personal "usage" lol
You know that my HSC was last year
If I am a conic section, then my e = ∞
Just so we don't have this discussion in the future, my definition of the natural numbers includes 0.
Unless you use \begin{align*} \\ &= I don't know of any ways to do on actual LaTeX because I do not know of any page sizes larger than A4 to use in your preamble.
On the forum there's not much you can do. But by convention for a sequence nobody types out more than 3 terms before jumping straight to the final term. (P.S. you can use \dots to generate an ellipsis)
