LaTeX

Slightly off topic, but:

For you math folks, I recommend learning \LaTeX. It is a programming language in which you can write math notation, and it’s very beautiful. And best of all (for this class), it works on WordPress! It’s not that hard to begin using. And it’s free.

For instance, compare this, written in normal font: f(x) =(1+2+3+4+5+1/2+2^5)/2

with this: f(x)=\frac{1+2+3+4+5+\frac{1}{2}+2^5}{2}

It requires a bit of skill and practice but I think the clarity and beauty of the fonts will make the time investment worth it in the long run. Please message me if you want to learn!
