# MFwL – Making friends with LaTeX

“Making Friends with LaTeX” (MFwL) is a small presentation which the author uses to introduce LaTeX to his students. It is made using the Prosper Package. The objective of MFwL is to introduce newcomers to LaTeX and make them aware of various aspects of working with LaTeX. It covers:

(i) LaTeX Advocacy

(ii) LaTeX Document Structure

(iii) Paragraph Mode and Math Mode

(iv) Structuring the document

(v) Creating Tables, Graphics (in very short)

(vi) BibTeX

(vii) Recommendations for a LaTeX system

(viii) References for further reading

Its objective is not to make a person expert in using LaTeX but to get the person interested in LaTeX by making him understand the LaTeX way of working. The intention is that once the person is comfortable with the idea s/he can then explore the wonders of LaTeX on his/her own pace.
