Do you want your students to have excellent quality course notes? Would professional-grade presentations enhance your teaching? Using the programs LyX and LaTeX together, you can produce publication-ready materials for print or presentation. Both tools are open-source and cost-free to use. Advantages to using the tools for classroom presentations include preparing high quality equations, developing specialized macros, fine-grain control, and use of vector images and movies for presentations. This workshop will provide an introduction to these tools, demonstrate these products, and discuss instructional strategies these products enable.
Join us to discuss the preparation of quality educational materials using these tools.
