# SPE’s LaTeX Course

This week I taught a LaTeX course for the Student Chapter of Society of Petroleum Engineers at the University of Campinas.

## Students

I had 10 students (see the photo at the begin of this post). Most of them are graduate students and members of SPE (only one student is undergraduate and another one is from life science).

SPE asked before the course what was the previous knowledge of LaTeX and most of the students reported that this was the first time they are trying to use/learn LaTeX.

## Course

The course was divided in three days with classes of 1:30 each day. The topics covered in each day was:

- 1st Day
- \documentclass
- \usepackage
- \begin{document}
- Paragraph
- Lists

- 2nd Day
- \input
- \label
- \ref
- Table
- Figure
- Equations

- 3rd Day
- BibTeX and biblatex
- beamer

## Feedback

Students said that they like the course and using ShareLaTeX.
