Latex, or $\text{\LaTeX}$, (pronounced lah-TEK or lay-TEK) is a typesetting markup language that is useful to produce properly formatted mathematical and scientific expressions.

Using LaTeX in the Community, the AoPSWiki, or the Classroom

If you are just learning $\text{\LaTeX}$ for use on the AoPS site, then go to the LaTeX on AoPS page. If you would like to produce full documents of your own, please follow the directions below.

Getting Started with Writing Documents in LaTeX

  1. The first step is to install the software to use LaTeX on your computer.
  2. All of these packages are FREE. They are not developed or distributed by Art of Problem Solving. (You will also need a PDF viewer such as the free Adobe Reader; however this program is already installed on most computers as well as in Google Chrome.)
  3. Work through the "Basics" pages:
    • The First Document page walks you through creating your first LaTeX document.
    • The Math page shows you how to typset mathematics in LaTeX.
    • The Style section shows you how to control the basic appearance of your document.
  4. Learn how to add images to your LaTeX documents.
  5. Use our LaTeX quick-reference guides to learn more about:
    • The layout of your document.
    • The different symbols available in LaTeX.
    • Some of the commands in LaTeX, and how to define your own new commands.
    • Various external packages that can increase LaTeX's abilities, and how to create your own new packages.
  6. Use the TeXer to experiment and practice writing mathematical formulas.
  7. Use the Help page and the LaTeX forum for more help.
