Website Changes

February 17th, 2009

As you have probably noticed, we have added a few new features to the website. It now displays for you which lessons you have viewed and not viewed, which should make it easier to keep track of where you are. It will also show you what lessons have been added or updated. If the changes aren’t self-explanatory, you can watch a video explaining them that is linked on most pages, and is also at If you have comments and suggestions about the new look, please let me know or post comments in the blog.

One brief comment about the new look is that it only tracks the videos that you have seen since the change (i.e., since 2/15). This means that videos that you viewed earlier will say that they are unviewed. The easiest solution to this is to not care very much, but if you want to have the check marks and an accurate count of the fraction of the lessons that you have viewed, then you can trick the system by opening the videos and close the window as soon as the video starts.

Welcome to Fall 2007 Online Seminar

June 4th, 2007

Welcome to the Fall 2007 seminar for Exam 2/FM. I will be posting important information on this blog through out the next 5 months. So please check it regularly.

All of the material from last sitting’s seminar is available now. That includes video lessons, chapter summaries, lots of problems, a sample exam and video or detailed solutions to some of the problems. I will be re-recording some of the lessons, adding solutions to all the problems, creating at least one more sample exam and adding a calculator series of lessons. I’ll let you know when they are available (it will be at least be 1 month before I get started on these changes).

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me.
