The ideas for this site have been bouncing around inside my head and on my computer for years, and this site is an acknowledgement that it was time to finally act on these ideas.
The site will feature a collection of scripts I have written to help illustrate different concepts. A large part of this will be a flash cards section which will provide an avenue to study or refresh one's memory on various subjects. I recognize, though, that all subjects are not easily understood through flash cards and so I also have an examples section where various algorithms are implemented on example problems to provide users with a more hands on experience.
The algorithms and concepts that are (and will be) listed here will focus mainly on those considered important, either by others or by myself. One of the problems with learning concepts in a classroom and from books is that the set of examples is very limited. This often restricts the student(s) who are unable to grasp the concept to look for additional references. Hopefully by randomly generating examples, and allowing for a much broader set of examples, interested persons have a higher chance of understanding things.
My target audience here is college students and those interested in understanding what mathematicians do, or how math is used "in the real world". I've found that the higher up one goes into the math related areas, the more sparse the resources become and the more the jargon from different authors and sources seems to sound so similar. To many, this creates an opportunity to learn to teach yourself these concepts. For many others though, this is the same point at which pursuing a degree in math or a math related area becomes unattainable. Hopefully, my site can be a resource to both these sets of people as well as others that I have not mentioned.
The site will be updated regularly, generally with either new subject areas added to the flash cards database, new scripts added to the examples. I leave open the possibility, though, of entirely new sections being introduced as ideas continue to develop and the site continues to grow.
With that being stated, here are links to my fellow pages.
