In Fall 2017 I'm teaching MA 395, Discrete Methods and MA 151, Applied Calculus .
Here are my papers
I've been teaching my students to use LaTeX, the best mark-up
language for producing beautiful documents, especially ones
containing mathematics. Here are a few LaTeX Guides.
I've made some Open Source Calculus notes, licensed under the Creative Commons, NC, BY license. One of the distinguishing features is that I've set the files up to be very modular, so that the same source can provide different Calculus courses: Applied Calc, Late Transcendentals, Calc I and Calc II. Also I've created commands for taking different snapshots of the texts: Examples only, Examples with blank spaces, Definitions only, fill in the blank modes, etc. Here's some links showing how I've used it:
Emacs and TeXShop
Here are some tricks I've found
useful in making Emacs (specifically Carbon Emacs with Auctex)
interact well with TeXShop.
Keyboard layout for Dvorak and LaTeX
In 1997 I started using the Dvorak keyboard layout for all my typing. But, I figured, if I was going to go through the trouble of learning a new keyboard, why not make it even better for entering LaTeX? So I further customized the Dvorak keyboard. The letters are in the same place as the standard Dvorak, but I moved around some of the other symbols. Anyway, here it is .
Loyola, G-drive and Macintoshes
At Loyola, the networked file server is typically called the G-drive.
This is easy to connect to on the Macintosh.
From the Finder choose Go, Connect to Server, and enter
where you would replace "educkworth" with your user name. This should
mount your G-drive on your desktop, where you can edit and use the
Citrix on Safari
Loyola is starting to put more and more applications on Citrix
Metaframe, which is a web-based distribution. When it works, it's
wonderful, and you can access lots of programs right through your
web-browser. In the past, you had to set things up correctly to get
it to work on Safari on the Macintosh. But these days it should be
Graduate programs of interest
Here I've gathered some
information about graduate programs at other schools that might be of
interest to Loyola students.
