One of my most striking experiences as a senior high school teacher is the great interest and and ability to understand mathematics of many students of ages 16-19. I have a firm belief that many areas of mathematics, that are normally studied at university level, can be grasped also at high school level if they are given a suitable presentation. Just to mention one example, in the academic year 1982/83 I tought an optional course in complex analysis. In just 15 hours this enabled the participants to determine integrals by residue calculus!
One purpose of my math
page is to present a number of comparatively advanced topics in
a way that makes them accesible at senior high school level or slightly
above. This may also be of interest to mathematics teachers.
