# LaTeX for Beginners

## Event box

LaTeX is a free typesetting program that you can use to format books, articles, slides, and other types of documents. LaTeX makes it easy to format things like mathematical formulas, symbols, and lines of poetry, which can be tricky to do in Word or Google Docs.

This workshop will introduce the basics of working with LaTeX, including:

- Setting up a LaTeX document
- Formatting basics (paragraphs, sections, tables, etc.)
- Using LaTeX for math & science*
- Using LaTeX for literature & linguistics*

*Note: This session will primarily focus on LaTeX basics, and will briefly introduce how LaTeX is used in different disciplines. Please email Lauren (lbuckley@brandeis.edu) if you would be interested in a subject-specific LaTeX workshop.
