README file for LaTeX Math for Undergraduates
Jim Hefferon
This is a cheat sheet for writing mathematics with LaTeX, focused on the
needs of US undergraduates.
When I asked my students for feedback on LaTeX the consensus was that
it was pretty straightforward but that they needed a few things,
such as a list of symbols. This is that list.
HISTORY
2017-Jan-10 Initial.
2020-Dec-30 Put into repo and correct a few things. These include
$ and $ instead of \( and \), mention RSFS, change to mathtools
from amsmath, improve discussion of spacing in math, and put
\big, etc., first in discussion of fence sizing.
FEEDBACK
I appreciate corrections. However, this document requires that things
are boiled down, so in some places I have made choices such as using an
italic d in the integral. If your choices differ then you can grab
the source at https://gitlab.com/jim.hefferon/undergradmath and adapt it
for your needs.
