Abstract: LaTeX is a document preparation system especially well-suited for technical and mathematical documents. It is an extension, written by Leslie Lamport, to Donald Knuth's TeX. I will explain briefly why LaTeX is the most popular language for typesetting mathematical and scientific papers. I will begin with the basics of LaTeX, how to install it, and what it is and is not. I intend to teach you everything you'll need to know to typeset your psets and/or notes. As time allows, I'll describe some of the more advanced features of LaTeX, such as drawing pictures, making slide-shows, and it's powerful macro language. I'll end by handing out exercises which will help you become comfortable with typesetting math in LaTeX.
