 +One of the most useful programming languages is TEX, constructed by 
 +Donald Knuth, and developed by Leslie Lamport into LATEX, the standard
 +for mathematical typesetting over the last 25 years. If you want to 
 +be able to typeset your mathematical work, or even to typeset any of 
 +your assignments,​ LATEX can be very valuable. ​
 +
 +I will give a lecture/​demonstration of elementary aspects of
 +the LATEX programming language. If you have installed a version of TEX on your laptop, bring it
 +along. On the MAC, install TEXshop. On machines running Microsoft operating systems, install MikTEX. Both of these versions
 +of TEX are freely available on the Web.
