LaTeX help

LaTeX is the friendly face of TeX, a powerful mathematical typesetting engine. You can use it to produce book-quality printed technical material without delving into the details of TeX itself.
LaTeX builds on TeX by providing standard document layouts, dealing automatically with labels and cross-references, and making it easy to include tables and graphics.
In practice you type file.tex of plain text, and include mark-up codes for headings, mathematics, figures, etc. This is the "source" that is input to LaTeX. The output is a file holding viewable and printable pages.
Do everything -- edit your source, run LaTeX, view and print the results -- using a dedicated editor (Integrated Development Environment or IDE) -- see below. In case the departmental LaTeX briefing is not sufficient, you may be interested in the CIS course IT79: Introduction to LaTeX.
