I realize a blog format isn’t ideal for writing mathematical notes, especially if I need to recall something I wrote about ages ago. So this page just keeps track of the material I’ve written about.

1. Calculus
1.1. Calculus in a Single Variable
1.2. Analysis Interlude
1.3. Vector Calculus
1.4. Special Functions
2. Linear Algebra
3. Puzzles
4. Foundations, including elementary algebra and naive set theory.
