LaTeX is a program to help type mathematics. It is very heavily used in mathematics, computer science, physics and several other disciplines. All the documents that I have given you in class have been prepared in LaTeX. Below are some references that may help you typeset your own documents.
There is a link to a manual at the bottom of this page
First you'll need some software though.
For windows: TeXnicCenter. You'll also need MiKTeX
Also for windows: WinEdt. Shareware, not completely free (but free to try until you get annoying "buy me" messages), you'll also need MiKTeX.
For Mac: Texshop.
For Linux etc: Go install a TeX base (for example, Texlive) via your systems software installation tools, and then use your favorite text editor (ie emacs). You can also use an editor desinged for LaTeX like Kile.
Here are some example files. You should be able to LaTeX these on anything without any trouble.
Hello world: A minimal LaTeX document. Source file: HelloWorld.tex. Output file: HelloWorld.pdf
Notations sheet: Here is the latex code I used to create the notation sheet above. Source file: NotationAndTerminology.tex. Output file: NotationAndTerminology.pdf
The recent worksheet on vectors: Source file: VectorWorksheet.tex. Output file: VectorWorksheet.pdf
