# Introducing students to $\LaTeX$

It’s spring, which means I am teaching our transition to proof course, Discrete Structures for the (checks notes) seventh time. Starting the second time, I decided to ask the students to learn to write their homework in $\LaTeX$. This has been largely successful, though I’ve had to do a bit of work to get buy-in (though the existence of free, cloud-based tools like Overleaf certainly helps). You can read my rationale in the assignment that introduces it (which, for any students reading this, is due today!). Download the PDF or $\LaTeX$ file below.
