comment Anyone have some cool/artistic problem set templates?
I mostly use my own skrapport document class, but the class itself is getting a bit out of hand. See 1, 2, 3 for samples of varying correctness. It automatically includes skmath, which provides useful math shorthands.

comment Guidelines for typesetting fractions
I generally use \frac in display math, and \sfrac in inline math and exponens, unless the expression is very long or the result is unclear. But I suspect this may be very subjective.
