LaTeX Math for Undergrads

LaTeX Math for Undergraduates page 1 LaTeX Math for Undergraduates page 0

This is a cheat sheet for writing mathematics with LaTeX. It is aimed at undergraduates.

When I asked my students for feedback on LaTeX the consensus was that it is pretty easy but they need a list of symbols. This is my response. Besides including all the symbols they should need, there is some general advice about writing mathematics in LaTeX and a few examples taken from their classes. It prints on two sides of a US letter sheet, so you could shove it in a book or a backpack and have it right there when you are writing.
