Its a typesetting language. A serious math or science student should learn LaTeX. You could start \( \href{http://www.jach.hawaii.edu/~friberg/Books/Learning%20LaTeX.pdf }{here}\)

Since we cannot express certain maths symbols through typing [ eg: square of x only as x^2 ] , latex typing is used where it is possible
