Steve Marsden’s

Welcome

If you are a student in one of my classes you will find material that is supplementary, not essential.

If you want to know more about a topic we have discussed--or want a different perspective--try the Topics section. On those same pages you will find supplementary practice problems as well. The online "lectures" approximate what might go on in class on a good day :-). If you're absent or need a quick review, that's the place to go.

Since this site is always under development, feel free to let me know if there is something else you would find helpful here. You can either tell me in class or e-mail me here.
