The students will learn the basics of work with the typographic system LaTeX. No previous knowledge of LaTeX is required, it is a course for beginners. TeX is suitable for writing not only mathematical texts and its advantages will come to the fore mainly when writing a bachelor or diploma thesis. Some journals from mathematics and mathematical education require contributions written in TeX.
