If I have any announcements from class time, I'll post the details here...

To get LaTeX (la-tech) for typesetting math documents — like your homework or extra credit — visit the TeX Users Group (TUG). They've got a decent startup document to follow and also link you to the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network (CTAN). In particular, to typeset math documents in the most standard way, you'll want to get the amsmath package from the American Mathematical Society (AMS).

Remember that fancy typesetting is

**not**necessary. But LaTeX will give you better results than Word with or without MathType. And either system is easier than scanning in your handwritten solutions to make a PDF. But if you have to hand me paper, I'm bound to take it. *sniff* *groan* *rubs his aching back*
