As part of our Community Resources for teachers running courses, workshops and events, here we provide an Overleaf-version of the excellent quick guide to LaTeX, originally by Dave Richeson (reproduced with his kind permission).
This version is perfect for sharing as a PDF, or as a two-sided printed handout. If you'd like to tweak it to suit your workshop, you can open it as a template to make edits to the source. Please note that the Overleaf logos themselves shouldn't be altered, but you can find alternative versions here if you'd prefer. If you make substantial edits to the template, or find other uses for it, please let us know!
We also have a complementary PDF listing the Overleaf keyboard shortcuts, available here.
If you're looking for a fuller guide to LaTeX to share with you students, we have a free online course, a learn LaTeX in 30-minutes quick start guide, and many other in-depth tutorials and examples on our learn wiki.
License note: the text content / source code of the handout is provided under the CC BY 4.0 license, as is Dave Richeson's original version. If you modify the template, guidance on the use of the Overleaf logos is available here.

This is a template to be used for \(LaTeX\)-based typing practice.
I had heard some people complain that typing LaTeX takes so long, so I created this. If slow typing really is an issue for you and you are willing to practice, use this source code in a touch typing program such as TIPP10 (you can import your own texts for practice).
This will ensure you get some targeted typing practice. Feel free to add structures you need most for your personalized 'typing workout'.
This template can be used for typesetting solutions to homework assignments.
We define a document class that includes a number of useful packages, defines shorthand macros for commonly used constructs and makes it easy to typeset answers to exercises. The template default content demonstrates how various tasks can be achieved in LaTeX as well: mathematical notation and many symbols, typesetting a table, including a figure, et cetera.
If you're looking to get started with a LaTeX presentation, this template is for you! You can customise the look and feel of your presentation by choosing your preferred combination of Theme and Color Theme. Click the image above to get started, and try changing the theme to "Madrid" to get the look shown.
