LaTeX Course at 3rd Day of EnCPos

Last Friday was the last day of my course about LaTeX that I talk some days ago (see the post here.

I try to follow the plan with the pads (one for the contents and other for feedbacks) and the rounds:

Round 3.1 and 3.2

I like to try use GitHub Gist for review the codes of the students. I will ask the students to retype this pdf (build from this file) starting from this LaTeX document (the pdf).

After the students retype the document they must copy and past it in a GitHub Gist and add the link in the pad. I will review the codes as soon as they finished the active.

Round 3.3
Introduction to in-line and display math mode.
Round 3.4
Some examples of BibTeX.
Round 3.5
Some examples of TikZ.


I just end to teach a small course about LaTeX and ask the students to reproduce a little page (only half of it have text) in 40 minutes (students that already use LaTeX finish it in 20 minutes and novices only do half of the exercise) and after finish create a gist with their code (I review the code after the class). It was a very small experiment but seems to me that the students like the exercise.
