    Re: A Short Guide to LaTeX

    This is 'from TeXStudio, the interface seems alot more user friendly.

    So I may stick with this one for now.

    Sure, they all do pretty much exactly the same thing.

    The power of LaTeX is in the code itself, frontends don't really matter.

    It seems to me that the LaTeX coding on the Bored of Studies forums is slightly different to the one one the Texstudio when entering fractions :

    Try putting the maths stuff between dollar signs, i.e. write $\frac{2}{5}$.

    Re: A Short Guide to LaTeX

    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.

    Re: A Short Guide to LaTeX

    So I have two questions.

    1. When I was watching the Latex guide by the UNSW Mathsoc guy, he used the following packages:

    Code:
    \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
    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 textbook

    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

    Re: A Short Guide to LaTeX

    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?

    Re: A Short Guide to LaTeX

    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.

    Re: A Short Guide to LaTeX

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

    Re: A Short Guide to LaTeX

    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.

    Re: A Short Guide to LaTeX

    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.

    That's not true, my school has a large Campbelltown sampling, so we have bogan streaks running everywhere.
    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.

    Re: A Short Guide to LaTeX

    How do you design a page width longer than the current settings?

    I've got this problem on Bored of Studies and a random LaTeX generator online:

    Re: A Short Guide to LaTeX

    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)
