(4/13/02) I have started what I am calling the "AcroTeX Online Assessment Center". Currently the assessment has some practice exercises in elementary differentiation. Check it out, I would value any comments you might have.
(6/10/99) Uploaded a slide show demonstration of Newton's Method. This demo is meant for classroom presentations.
(5/6/99) Published two LaTeX packages for people who want to create interactive exercises and quizzes similar to what I do in the e-Calculus tutorial. See the webeq.html startup page.
(11/6/98) Just uploaded the e-Calculus tutorial with an experimental index system. The main index is located in the file c1_menu.pdf, each topic, functions, limits, continuity, differentiation, and integration, have their own (local) index. Because the topics are scattered about in different files, there is a "file identifier" that precedes the page number; the meaning should be obvious. The topics contained in the indexes are "experimental", I have not made a serious effort at inserting index markers. (That will come later, when e-Calculus is "complete".) Check out the index system and report any bugs, comments, critcisms, witticisms, footnotes or remarks you may have. dps
(10/28/98) WebTrig is here. A colleague of mine, Dr. Thomas E. Price, Jr., has written a tutorial on trigonometry.
(9/24/98) Web site advertisement, advert.pdf. (For Download this poster, print it, and post it where interested people can see it.
(9/10/98) Using LaTeX to Create Quality PDF Documents for the WWW The title pretty much tells it all. If you are interested in putting technical material on the WEB using the pdf, this article is for you!
(7/29/98) PDF Flash Cards: Elementary Arithmetic generates random arithmetic problems (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division); the operation is user selectable. There is also a timing device for drilling against the clock. Running totals and success percentages are maintained as well.
(6/5/98) Pdfmarks: Links and Forms: Two part article on how to create the hypertext links and other special effects seen at this website. Very technical. For those who want to develop their own sites using the same techniques as I use.
(4/9/98) A PDF Calculator by Hans Hagen. Very nice! Uses Forms 3.5. Best run "off-line."
(1/31/98) Algeboard/JS that uses Acrobat Forms 3.5.
(1/7/98) quiz1_q.pdf. An on-line calculus quiz in the pdf format that uses CGI programming to mark the quiz and to send the graded and correct quiz back to the user. Try it out! (And report any glitches.)
(12/21/97) The Giants of Calculus is a two-column matching game with questions on six of the great names in Calculus, indeed, in all of Mathematics. Click here for more information.
(12/1/97) Algeboard, inspired by the work of Gary Cosimini of Adobe. An Algebra Quiz Board Game. Try it, test yourself! Click here for more information on Algeboard.
