Hello world! It’s so nice to see you. Well, I can’t really see you (that’d be creepy), but it’s so nice to have you here. This is a project of mine that I want to share with the world. I’m a student here at Tufts, and the best way that I study is to make review sheets. It allows me to review the material and gives me a way to reference the important parts of topics. I’ve been doing this since high school, so this is certainly not a new method to me. I had (and still have for now) a poorly run Google Sites webpage with all of my high school stuff, but I’d like to transfer all that over to a more professional and successful site, which is this one here! Since I’m in college now and since my study habits won’t be changing, this will become a repository for my college review sheets too, which will hopefully help those taking many sciences, engineering, or math classes. Right now, I only have review material that I have personally created, but one day I hope to have this become a database for review material, so-to-speak.
Anyway, enough of me rambling. I just want to make it clear though that this project is not going to be completed for a little while. Life at Tufts has been insanely busy, but I see this as a Spring break project for sure. It will most likely be essentially completed by the end of break if all goes as planned. I have uploaded two review sheets for Calc III. This is kind of a sample of what’s to come. I’ll upload posts with documents attached to them, and these will be organized in the panel on the right into College and High School Material. The posts will then be organized by individual class so that a user can simply go straight to the class that want to review for without surfing through an endless sea of posts. I have included a Facebook “share” button to share material with friends, and I guess everything else will come as it comes! All I ask is that you don’t try to claim the material as your own if it’s not. I spent a lot of time working on this, and all I ask is that the credit remains in my name.
Thanks for visiting! Let me know of any suggestions you may have as the site begins to take shape.

This is an excellent Calc III review sheet made by my friend Tyler Silber, a student at the University of Connecticut. You can find it here:

Also, this will help you with computing double integrals. It’s a Wolfram|Alpha widget to easily find the answer to a double integral. It can be found at: http://www.wolframalpha.com/widgets/view.jsp?id=f5f3cbf14f4f5d6d2085bf2d0fb76e8a
This review sheet is created by Paul Dawkins of “Paul’s Online Math Notes.” You can download a PDF of his Calc III review sheets at the following domain of his: http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/downloadfile.aspx?file=B,11,N
