    To learn LaTeX thoroughly could take a long time, but for basic things, you could learn everything you need to know very quickly.

    For example, double click on skeeter's expression to see what was typed to get it:

    \frac{3a}{2a-1} - \frac{1}{2a}

    There is not too much going on here.

    In order to get it to render on this forum, you use [tex][/tex] tags. There is a LaTeX Help subforum on MHF here, along with a tutorial. You can start making pretty expressions pretty much instantly, just look at the tutorial and play around with it..

    Edit: For some reason, the PDF in the most recent tutorial thread is a broken link. You can get the PDF from this thread. I will notify the mods about the broken link.

    If you're going to be doing a job that makes money, you'll pretty much never be doing real math. Some jobs like quantitative finance make a lot of money (if you're good, maybe 200,000 a year--I think, I don't really know, this is a guess based on what friends have suggested to me) and use some hard math. But it's still not real math. By real math, I mean like mathematical research. Maybe that's a definition of "real math" based on a prejudice.

    Yeah. To me that's real math. I'm probably being too much of a purist and too philosophical about the point, but that's what I think of as real math. Nobody does that and makes huge money except some of the absolute smartest people in the world. Everyone else is just a teacher making \approx 120,000 which is not bad unless you have huge student loans and then it's still not bad but not great.

    If you're looking at mech engineering, probably doing a much easier job and making a bit more money, you just need calc, differential equations, and linear algebra. If you're smart, you could knock that out by your first year of college.

    What grade are you in NOW ? Attending math classes?

    By the way, Latex is NOT math: it's simply a way of typing differently.

    What!?!? you use Latex in Uni? Wow now I'm so happy I learnt it!
