EuclidDay1.tex (Source file for "Day 1", with instructions, to be used as a template.
Can be compiled alone, but will have no picture.)

EuclidDay1pic.pdf 
Put this in the same folder as EuclidDay1.tex (both on Desktop is fine).
Now compile EuclidDay1.tex with "Typeset" (on a Mac) or  "PDFLatex" (PC).
