**LaTeX**

LaTeX is a powerful math typesetting language that is used to produce documents, journal articles, slides and posters. In order to produce LaTeX documents you will need (free) software, such as MikTeX for MS Windows or MacTeX for Mac systems.

A sample article and a template for slides are available below. The tex files and images needed to make these documents are found in cornell_latex.zip.

**Tutoring and assistance**

Student tutors are selected and hired by the Quantitative Reasoning Studio in consultation with the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. Tutors are available to help you in introductory math classes.

Where? Quantitative Reasoning Studio, 125 Cole Library

When? Quantitative Reasoning Consultant Jessica Johanningmeier is generally in or around the QR Studio Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. But to be sure she is there, email or call x4222 first. Appointments are also accepted.

Student tutors for introductory math classes are available in the evenings. Days and times vary from one block to the next. A schedule of hours is available at the QR Studio.
