Teaching and learning

At Mohawk College, teaching and learning mathematics involves Scientific Notebook. To view some of their course materials, use your MacKichan program to open http://www.mohawkc.on.ca/dept/math/snpages/sn4_start.tex . Read about other institutions that teach with our programs.

Tips from our users

In captions for tables that float, use a backslash (\) before characters that have meaning in LaTeX, such as %. Otherwise, the program may appear to truncate your document.
