Here is the syllabus, please show me it in class
during the first week.
Here's my single favourite history
of mathematics web site.
Here you may find a place to leave anonymous
comments about the course.
about three reflections (includes as a particular case
Here is a virtual
Here's a place where you can make
your own Julia sets. And a place to compare
the Julia sets and the Mandelbrot set.
Here are some notes for proving the fundamental
theorem of arithmetic.
Eventually there may be samples of final projects that aren't on sections
that you'll be doing. There are - they are on the final
The New York State regents exams you will be required to complete may be
from which you may select a wide variety of historical mathematics exams.
One of your classmates found this
one particularly interesting (from 1866). (I find the end-time
of the first part particularly notable.)
This is the preparation
for the New York State Mathematics Content Speciality Test. It
provides a good summary of the mathematics that you will need to know.
Pay particular attention to pages 7 - 14.
Here are some materials related to our work with polynomials:
Here is a good website about the median-median
