This post serves as Grand Central Station for my Advanced High School Math Project.
The comments section of this post should be used only for corrections or clarifications of pages in that project. Any other comments will be deleted. But your corrections are welcome: please be sure that the page title is in the comment, and if your correction is valid, I will correct the page and credit you. Corrections include valid claims of previous authorship that should be cited on the bibliography page (which doesn't exist yet).
If you are interested in submitting a proof for publication on these pages please follow the guidelines below, and send it to me at the e-mail address listed on the "About" page. Feel free to contact me with a proposed topic before you write it.
- The proofs should require no more than a good understanding of well-rounded high school math curriculum. I realize this won't mean the same thing to everyone, so I will be the judge of whether it's too advanced or not.
- The diagrams should be sent to me as JPEG files. So far, I have not yet learned how to insert equations into the blog except as JPEG files. Until I do learn that (e-mail me if you know how!!), your simple equations (for example: a+b+c=180) should be in the body of the text, and the complicated ones should be JPEGs.
- The text should be clearly written, and should avoid complicated notations in favor of concise English. Clarity is judged by me.
- Notation should enhance the understanding of the proof, not obscure it. This judgment will be made by me.
- The topics should be either significant, well-established mathematical results or surprising facts with especially elegant and/or enlightening proofs. It is not my intention to merely publish nice solutions to cool problems. Significance and/or elegance will be weighed by (are you sensing a pattern here?) me.
- I will try to retain your voice and ideas, but I reserve the right to edit. Your name or pseudonym will, of course, be included.
- If you found the proof somewhere else (a book, another web page, whatever), that source must be cited, and your proof must be significantly altered or improved in clarity. If you do not know the source, but you know you the proof is not original (and I understand that this happens often, especially with clear and enlightening proofs), please say that—I would hope that the original writers of the proofs will eventually be found and cited. I want to avoid any scent of plagiarism.
- I'm not trying to discourage submissions; I just want to be sure the pages retain their original purpose, as explained on the index page of the project. I would be very happy indeed if I had a lot of clear, well-written contributions.
Thanks for visiting...I hope you find these pages useful.
