# LyX/LaTeX Templates

*Book, Notes, Assignment, Article, and Mathematics Work Term Report LyX templates. Special thanks goes to Thomas Dimson who made the original Work Report Template.*

*All old and new versions will now be hosted on GitHub, accessed here. I will keep the Linux links (here) up, but development on that website has ceased indefinitely.*

*NOTE: I highly advise that you get the hfbright package in your MiTeX package manager if you want to use the cmbright fonts. They look many times sharper!*

**Academic Resources**

**Various Mathematics Course Notes **(link)

*A webpage created by Professor Emeritus Robert B. Ash at the University of Illinois consisting of notes on topics in various fields of mathematics.*

**Study Tips and Education Related Content**

**A Mathematician’s Lament **(.pdf)

*An article detailing the current problems faced with current mathematics education by Paul Lockhart. It’s an excellent read and one of my favourite articles.*

**A Mathematician’s Survival Guide **(.pdf)

*A VERY good read (another one of my favourites) about the public perceptions of mathematicians versus a mathematician’s own thoughts on the subject by Peter G. Casazza. I highly advise that you buy the book as it has some of the most useful information found for the motivated undergraduate looking for graduate schools.*

**How to get straight A’s in college **(link)

*A link to Presh Talwalker’s advice on maintaining straight A’s in college from his experiences at Stanford. *

**How To Read a Mathematics Textbook **(link)

*A link to Dr.D’Agostino’s advice on how to properly read (and re-read) maths textbooks.*

# Typesetting

**Lyx** (link)

*A WYSIWYM document typesetter which uses LaTeX or any TeX package to write articles, reports, books and papers. This is what I mainly use to type my documents.*
