This is a template for writing papers, theses, etc., specifically for economics. A presentation file is also included to show how to use LaTex for presentations.
This is a simplified document with complicated referencing. If you write complicated documents, I recommend this structure.
-Descriptions- includes mathmatical specifications
-files- includes your figures and tables. Under files, you can find a location to add descriptions of tables and figures. This is useful if you have multiple figures with (part of) the same base description.
-Sections- includes your chapters (of the document)
the rest is self-explanatory
In this project, students create a two-dimensional shape with nonuniform density, finds its center of mass, and hang it from a mobile. The various portion of the project address the differences and relationships between computing the center of mass of a discrete set of point masses and a lamina.
Included here is also a sample solution to help students formulate their own well-written solutions. Also, in the LaTeX code are a few comments to address some of the basics of LaTeX and Overleaf.
