Hello, and happy new year to all.

I will be returning to school on the 13th, and I will be taking a math

course, and I need a crash course in nemeth code (if there is such a

thing<grin>).

I just need to get a handle on the basics (I already understand that the

numbers are dropped) such as:

basic operators

use of parentheses and brackets and set operators

superscripts and subscripts

conventions for letters (eg. greek letters vs. variables)

and a general idea of how to work with constructing and manipulating

equations on a brailler (I just got a brailler a couple of weeks ago),

and anything else thaat I might have missed. I will be taking a course

that will begin with algebra and work up to logarithms and trigonometry.

I decided to take this course for review and practice as this is the

first time I will be dealing with mathematics as a blind person. Any

other hints as to how to work with the teacher, take notes, and tests

will be much appreciated (I will be printing out my homework with TeX).

I have decided that I definately want to use braille as my main tool for

working with mathematics.

Thanks for any help anybody can give -- I am getting a little desperate here.
