Latex On Jupyter Notebook

Posted on  by admin

Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your LaTeX files and convert them to Jupyter notebook files. Yes, it’s that easy.

Converting from LaTeX

LaTeX was developed in 1984 and no, that’s not a typo. It’s nearly 40 years old. It started as a writing tool for mathematicians and computer scientists, but has quickly been taken up by scholars who wanted to write documents with math expressions or non-Latin scripts (Arabic or Chinese for example). As with a lot of other text document formats, it’s used to structure the content, not style it. LaTeX is used directly or as an intermediate format to produce files for printing or digital distribution. It supports highlighting (such as bold or italic), citations and cross-references. Or to make it short: It’s the most powerful format to structure your texts. Convert all your files to LaTeX.

The files end with .tex by default.

Converting to Jupyter notebook

  • Eventually i found this site with instructions on installing some latex enviorments for jupyter notebook but i'm not sure it contains the physics package AND i failed to actually install it. This is the readout of the terminal when typing. Pip3 install jupyterlatexenvs -user-upgrade.
  • Nbconvert is a Python library that allows you to convert your Jupyter Notebook into other formats, like HTML, LaTeX and PDF. Nbconvert uses Jinja templates to define how Jupyter Notebooks will be displayed in these formats. You can define custom templates or extend the default Jupyter templates using inheritance.

Jupyter Notebook are the perfect playground for every nerd. The documents are based on JSON, but they follow a versioned schema, and contain ordered lists of input/output cells which can contain code, Markdown text, mathematics, plots and rich media. See what I mean? Jupyter Notebook provides a browser-based interactive interface that let’s you make those files. The whole Jupyter universe is huge. But you’re here, so I suppose you already know more about this stuff than me. You’re probably only looking for a nice and free converter and what should I say? I’ve never used Jupyter, but I built this free online converter you’re looking for. Happy converting!

The files end with Covers.ipynb by default.

Other free online converters

I made a resource for teaching people how to use Jupyter notebooks. Really it’s about learning LaTeX anywhere, but Jupyter notebooks are very well suited to this.

The notebook is available for download here.

1. Authentic resource

The jupyter notebook is available for download here. The intention is for it to be run on your free UCalgary syzygy server. The document can be read on Github, but on Syzygy it can be interacted with.

2. Background

Jupyter notebook markdown cheat sheet

LaTeX (pronounced “Lay-Tech” or “Laa-Tech” ) is a computer language used by mathematicians and physicists to nicely format mathematical expressions. Every math student will eventually need to know how to write in LaTeX, since all math journals are written using LaTeX. It is also used in every online platform that supports math writting, such as D2L discussion posts, Github, WordPress blogs, and Mathoverflow.

Jupyter notebooks are a file type that blends HTML, formatted text (markdown), formatted mathematical formulas (LaTeX) and runnable code (Python). It is the standard way that data scientists communicate with each other online.

3. Description

My resource is an interactive guide to properly typing LaTeX. The format is a Jupyter notebook which is an authentic way in which LaTeX is used by data scientists. The resource could be used in any first-year course at the University of Calgary that requires written mathematics (such as MATH 265 – Calculus 1 or MATH 311 – Linear Algebra 2). The examples are geared towards students in those courses.

4. Rationale

This was designed to be used as a resource outside of class that students could use whenever they want, as often as they want. In this sense it is a “flipped or blended” resource [3]. The nature of a jupyter notebook (it’s a fancy text file) means that students necessarily must download their own version of it and edit it as they go. This encourages them to personalize the material and take ownership of it. They can even modify the examples in the text instantly see how it changes the outcome.

In the SAMR model [2] this is firmly in the “Redefinition” category, as the Jupyter notebook simultaneously acts as information, scratch pad, code compiler, notebook, and authentic outcome. In addition, completing the exercises in a Jupyter notebook is an authentic use of the skill being trained.

The main driver of solid pedagogical underpinnings is the Universal Design guidelines [1]. There I used all nine principles to make the resource more robust and drive student learning in many different, but natural, ways. In particular, the resource is low in passive learning, and high in active learning. Each section is a couple sentences, some examples, then right into activities. The activities are of use to a student in a first year math class, and many additional, alternative explanations are offered. See my activity design post for more discussion about this.
