As I'm writing this, I am a PhD student studying Mathematics Education at the University of Georgia. My university email is my surname at uga.edu; if your browser supports it, click here to email me. There's also a button at the bottom of every page.

This page focuses on the assignments for EMAT 6680. If you want to know more about me, click here. I maintain personal pages at twelvefruits.com, which are linked from there.

Most pages on this site use JavaScript. Without it, you won't see mathematical equations or movies, which makes the site not that useful. If your browser doesn't have Javascript enabled, there will be a warning message below.

Assignments frequently include applets or animations. Animations are linked as Quicktime Movies, which require a plugin or player. Apple offers one and there are others. Other assignments have Java applets built through the free package GeoGebra that allow you to manipulate points and see the results. Still other assignments have files that open through the free Graphing Calculator Viewer. A couple assignments have scripts for Geometer's Sketchpad, but that's not a free package and so I've preferred free alternatives.

Additionally, these pages use TeX mathematical fonts provided by the jsMath package. I can insert mathematical code inside my text, like this sum \left( \sum_{i=1}^{10} i = 55 \right), and then keep typing. You can double-click on any equation to see the LaTeX coding. These pages will show math images by default. If you want to print or resize the pages, you can install special fonts. If you don't have the fonts installed, you'll see a message below Euler's formula.

e^{i \pi } + 1 = 0

The main purpose of this page is to provide links to my course assignments, the write ups and the Final Project. Those links will be listed here. Almost all the pages have an associated Java-based applet, found by clicking through on the assignment page. The applets may take a while to start. Nevertheless, they provide you a way to manipulate numbers and figures. I strongly suggest working with them.
