Mathematical Typing and Symbols
Does anyone have any tips on mathematical typing? Is there a program or a list of keyboard short cuts for mathematical symbols? There are a lot of fancy mathematical symbols floating around here and I'm getting a bit jealous...

If you use windows, MathType is what I use.

Hi Convrgx and Plato,

In the paste I always used MathType when I was writing formal documents in microsoft programs such as 'word' as well but
on the forum I mostly use Latex.

At home I downloaded Texmaker and use that. There are lots of video lessons on you tube. This is just the first one of a series that I learned from.
Unfortunately you can't just copy your latex programs and paste them in this forum, however, there is a simplified version of it that you can use directly from this site. I wrote this integral directly on this forum. (You don't need to download anything for that)

If you want to see how I wrote this click on the 'reply with quote' button at the bottom of this page.

$\int_2^3 5x^2+6x\; dx$

Initially I just learned from copying. I still do a lot of the time.

I hope that helps.
