The resources listed here are provided as a convenience for those who wish to learn to typeset mathematics. Here are some of the options:

**The old-fashioned way:**If you have never used a mathematical typesetting program, you don't expect to be writing much mathematics in your career, and your time is limited, your might be better off writing by hand, so that you can spend your time learning mathematical concepts and techniques rather than learning to use a complicated computer typesetting system.**Microsoft Word:**The latest versions of Microsoft Word (Word 2007 or later for Windows and Word 2011 or later for Mac) have a sophisticated built-in equation editor that is easy to use and produces excellent-looking output.**LaTeX:**If you expect to be writing a lot of mathematics in your life, sooner or later you will have to learn to use LaTeX. This is a dialect of (or more precisely a package of macros for) Donald Knuth's TeX mathematical typesetting system, and has become the de facto standard for typesetting mathematical articles, books, and research papers. If you already know something about LaTeX, or if you have the time to invest in learning it for this course, your investment will pay off over the long term. But be warned that it is not an easy program to learn, so you'll have to be prepared to devote some time to it.

With these caveats in mind, here are some resources for obtaining and learning about LaTeX

- Getting started with TeX (from TUG, the TeX Users' Group)
- MacTeX is a free TeX program for Macintosh, including a built-in editor and previewer
- MikTeX is a free TeX program for Windows (consider using it with a front-end program such as TeXnicCenter or TeXStudio)
- TeX Live is a free TeX program for Unix.
