See this page.

## Typesetting in TeX

Wikipedia guide to Tex editing in a Wiki
Harvard's page on typesetting math in TeX
Please note that the \$ in TeX should be omitted in the wiki edit.

## Some sample code

f(x) = y + z
$g(x) = \frac {z^{2 x}}{t + b_{j , i}}$

## Textbooks

There is no required textbook for the course, but here are two good ones that would help you in your future career as an experimentalist:

## New Equipment List

2 New Digital Multimeters (R)
More Banana cords
Flashlights
Meter stick
Stop Watches
Digital Caliper
~50 V Source (Excitation Neon)(R)
matlab, mathematica, or maple (as an alternative to labview)
(R indicates equipment that needs replacement)
