My daughter is a senior in high school. She uses TeX for the  
equations in her physics and math assignments. She just likes the way  
they look better than Word equations. She figured TeX out pretty much  
on her own, I just left a copy of Kopka and Daly around. Today's  
computer-savvy kids can figure out this stuff without breaking a sweat.
