Watch this site as we figure out how best to use it to learn some of the history of mathematics.

Here are some links:

Here's the list of pages for the individual classes. Eventually, each one will contain reasonably complete notes for that class. Each person visiting and editing can add or correct or rearrange the lecture notes left there by others. Don't duplicate stuff, do clarify. You need not sign your entries - I can use the wiki history to see who has worked on the page. When you save your changes please use the comment box to describe (briefly) what you've done.

You can also add (signed) paragraphs with questions, extra observations, links, … . It's probably best to put those at the end.

On spelling: please proofread your entries. Wikidot does tell you when you use a word it doesn't know (red squiggly underline in the text box), so pay attention. If you see spelling errors in other peoples' posts. please fix them. (I will do that from time to time, but not regularly since I don't want to spend all my time just editing.) Be particularly careful with new vocabulary and the names of mathematicians.
