Math Club line-up for Spring 2011

Jan 21
 Can you believe it?  Tonight is our first meeting -- Ross Hall 247 --- 3:10.  The theme is Latex, what it is, what it can do, and how to get started.  Lynne will give some basics and background, and three UW Math students -- Noll Roberts, Tim Shaw, and Mark Givens --- will share some of their recent experiences with learning Latex.  Optional will be some lab time afterwards in Math Lab.  The software is free.
