Hello, World!

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 to 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 (problem sets) to provide users with a more hands on experience.

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.

There are several areas that I would like to take the site, but with each area I have the problems of (a) showing the concept, (b) visualizing the concept, c) showing the intuition behind the concept. Sometimes, I will think of (what I call) more clever ways to teach or learn an idea I’ve already discussed. This may lead to more than one page on the same concept. I encourage you to try all such pages to see if you like any of them.

I hope you enjoy.
