The easiest way to get started is to use the free online format ShareLatex. Other useful tools include Once you've learned the software, you might want to install it on your personal machine (it's free!). For a PC, try MikTex and TexMaker – you need to download both, but the only interface you'd be aware that you are using is TexMaker. For a Mac, try TeXShop.
