LaTeX is a typesetting language. I call it “word for nerds” I started using it for homework and reports when I went back to school for ECE. It can be a bit challenging at first, but the results are worth the effort.
The key to getting started with LaTeX is to start with a template for the type of document you are writing. I goggled “latex homework template” and found many.
Once you have the template, open it up in your favorite text editor and fill in your name, the class name, etc.
To convert LaTeX source file into a pdf run “pdflatex myhomework.tex” This will either produce errors which you need to fix or it will create a pdf in your working directory.
Example hw for Physics (pdf): hw6.pdf
