If you're interested in typesetting math, the system I use to make my handouts is called LaTeX, and it can be downloaded for free (in Windows format) at http://www.miktex.org. If you own a Mac (system OS X) or a Linux computer, you already own a copy of this program, as it's been a standard Unix program for about 20 years. And for our purposes, the key point is that under any system, LaTeX can produce pdf output that is ideal for online homework submission.
LaTeX is well worth learning, if you have some free time; it's used for manuals and technical reports throughout nerd-dom. For self-study, I highly recommend the LaTeX book by Leslie Lamport, which you can purchase here.
In the box below are some acronyms that I use all the time, both in class and when grading your work. You are welcome to use them as well.
Numbers of the form A.B.C refer to Problem C of Section B of Chapter A of Artin.
