 Web and TeX information: I really want to encourage
and help you to put your work on the Web, and to read what others have put
there, and also to discuss mathematics with specificity in email and your
reviews and reports. I have compiled some links that may be useful.
(More useful would be for the state of the technology to advance so that
the process becomes easy and natural for all concerned. That is happening
slowly.)
 Information on the Web about
putting math on the Web. I urge all of you to read at least the first
two items (the one from Swarthmore, and the one from Karl's Calculus
Tutor about email). The later items become increasingly
technical, and often refer to "solutions" that are not useful to us now
because not every reader has the necessary software. The whole page will
be of interest to those who might be interested in helping develop the
higher education of the future. (See also Pilant's Web
course if you have time to browse.)
 Information about DVI viewers.
If you are unable to read the excellent homework papers of TeX users such
as David Robertson (M. 311, f96) and Andrew Barkley (M. 311, f98),
you should read this!
 Online introductions to TeX.
If you want to learn to use TeX yourself, here is free documentation!
