Assignments Latex template.

##Assignments Latex Template

###V 0.1

I always wanted some latex template that I could use for assignments. But none of the templates I found online had all the features I wanted. So the natural next step for me was to create one.

###Notes:

  • Use with XeLaTeX

###Intended features:

  • Bidirectional I ended up creating two tex files. One for only english assignments. And one for mainly Persian with possibility of including english.
  • Computer Science in mind.
  • Super simple. (No fancy stuff)
\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[english]{babel}

\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage{subcaption}
\usepackage{mathtools}
\usepackage{algorithm2e}
\usepackage[colorlinks=true]{hyperref} % the option is there to remove the square around links which is what I don't like.
\usepackage{perpage}
\MakePerPage{footnote} % Reset the footnote counter perpage. may require to run latex twice.
\usepackage[margin=2cm]{geometry} % This is here to fit more text into the page.
\setcounter{secnumdepth}{1} % This removes the numbering from the subsections.
% If you want the numbering of the subsection level just remove this line

\setlength{\parindent}{0pt} % No indentation for paragraphs. Because that is just old.
\setlength{\parskip}{\baselineskip} % Instead use vertical paragraph spacing.
\fontencoding{T1} % the better font encoding.
%\setmainfont{Helvetical} % Setting the main font here. But I like the default font alot so this is commented out.
\begin{document}
\maketitle
\begin{abstract}
Do we really need an abstract?\footnote{We usually don't have abstracts in assignments but for the sake of it I've put it here.}
Since we have created one, let's do a link to \href{https://github.com/yassersouri}{my github account}.
\end{abstract}
\section{First Section}
Code for this subsection could be found in \texttt{q\_1.m} file in the \texttt{src} folder.
\subsection{A}
This is the answer to question a. √ % just a unicode character to see if everything works fine.
\TeX{} is a computer program for typesetting documents, created by Donald Knuth. It takes a suitably prepared computer file and converts it to a form which may be printed on many kinds of printers, including dot-matrix printers, laser printers and high-resolution typesetting machines. \LaTeX{} is a set of macros for \TeX{} that aim.
This is the next paragraph.
\subsection{B}
Here we show how to embed one diagram as a figure. Take a look at figure \ref{fig:awesome_result}.
\begin{figure}[!h] % the part with "!h" is to place it inside this section. As this is the main way we want to have figures in assignment reports
\centering
\includegraphics[width=0.3\textwidth]{img.png}
\caption{Awesome Result}
\label{fig:awesome_result}
\end{figure}
\subsection{C}
Here we show how to embed subfigures as it might be usefull in assignment reports. Take a look at result on figure \ref{fig:multi}.
\begin{figure}[!h] % the part with "!h" is to place it inside this section. As this is the main way we want to have figures in assignment reports
\centering
\begin{subfigure}[h]{0.3\textwidth}
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{img}
\caption{The first}
\end{subfigure}
\begin{subfigure}[h]{0.3\textwidth}
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{img}
\caption{The second}
\end{subfigure}
\begin{subfigure}[h]{0.3\textwidth}
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{img}
\caption{The third}
\end{subfigure}
\caption{All of the diagrams}
\label{fig:multi}
\end{figure}
\subsection{D}
What if we solve the equation \ref{eq}.
\begin{equation}
\label{eq}
x_1 = \frac{5 + \sqrt{25 - 4 \times 6}}{2} = 3
\end{equation}
Also we know that
$
\frac{n!}{k!(n-k)!} = \binom{n}{k}
$ which will help us alot.
\section{Second Section}
Code for this subsection could be found in \texttt{q\_2.m} file in the \texttt{src} folder.
\subsection{A}
We try to solve the problem with Agorithm \ref{alg:first}.

\subsection{B}
Let's look at the results in Figure \ref{tab:first}
\begin{figure}[!h]

\begin{tabular}{ | l | l | l | p{5cm} |}
\hline
Day & Min Temp & Max Temp & Summary \\ \hline
Monday & 11C & 22C & A clear day with lots of sunshine.
However, the strong breeze will bring down the temperatures. \\ \hline
Tuesday & 9C & 19C & Cloudy with rain, across many northern regions. Clear spells
across most of Scotland and Northern Ireland,
but rain reaching the far northwest. \\ \hline
Wednesday & 10C & 21C & Rain will still linger for the morning.
Conditions will improve by early afternoon and continue
throughout the evening. \\
