\begin{abstract}
In this paper, we present {\em several} bits of formatted
text which need to be figured out.  This is part of the $1^{st}$
class in the intermediate series, or part of the last class 
of the beginning series.

One of the nicest things about TeX is its ability to handle math
formulas.  (It's actually easiest if you know what the formulas
mean, but that's neither here nor there.)  For example, an 
equation which includes $x^2$ and $\sqrt{y+3}$ is the following:
\[
w_i^j = \frac{x^2}{\sqrt{y+3}} + \sum_{k=1}^{100} \xi^k
\]
which shouldn't be too difficult to typeset.
