This post marks beginning of the new “blogged” (blog-accompanied) course “Analysis for High School Teachers” within the framework of the Caesarea-Rothschild Program. I will place here brief content of the forthcoming lectures and some relevant material. It may come in a variety of electronic formats, of which most popular are pdf and dejavu. e-Readers for these formats are freely available from the internet.
For those not familiar with the blogging subculture (are there still such people?). You are welcome to leave your comments/questions/remarks next to the relevant posts. Please introduce yourself when commenting. My wet dream is having mathematical discussions between the students attending the course on these pages. Don’t be afraid to express yourself and teach others. I promise not to abuse my rights as a moderator here. This venue for interaction is especially important since it is convenient for students which stay away from the teachers for most of the time.
Any language is accepted, though I strongly urge to write in the l.c.d. (= Simple English).
This platform (WordPress) allows for easy insertion of LaTeX code, which makes mathematical discussions here especially pleasant and easy to maintain.
The course will be accompanied by guided seminars led by Gal Binyamini: these seminars will be devoted to discussion of problems and their solutions as well as complimentary material to the main lectures. Gal will also post to this blog.
One of the sources for the course will be the excellent book which equally fascinates both professional mathematicians and high school children. It is in English and you can download an (illegally scanned) copy strictly for your personal use 🙂 here (21 Mb in pdf format: beware!). I will also try to upload separate relevant sections of the book next to posts on specific lectures.
