Welcome!

Welcome to my little corner of the world wide web in its new home (as of December 28, 2006)!

In here you will find a wide range of information. You will find the almost obligatory collection of links to other sites, pages about various software projects I am (or have been) working on, and pages relating to my interest in 3D graphics. You will even find a little bit about me in here.

This past weekend I wrote the final exam for the 6.002x course I started on March 5. The sample final exams we were given weren't nearly as scary as the sample midterm exam. I still don't feel I could have done well if we only had the suggested three hours for the exam.

154,763 students registered for the course. Only 10,547 people attempted the midterm exam and only 9318 passed it. At the end, 10,262 students attempted the final exam, 5,800 passed the final exam, and 7,157 got a completion certificate for a final grade of at least 60% overall.

I did well on the labs, homework, and exams and managed a 92% overall for the course. This is the highest grade I've ever achieved in formal education. I was quite pleased with my results. The math got intense at times. Weeks 5 and 9 in particular had some killer math. The course is going to be run again in the fall. If your math skills are a bit weak, or you don't know calculus, you will most likely find this course very tough.

Today is the first day of the 6.002x Circuits and Electronics course being run online as part of MITx (MIT's new online learning initiative). The pre-requisites are Physics, Algebra, and Calculus. I have always liked math and took Functions, Calculus, and Algebra in my last year of high school, and used Calculus in some classes at Ryerson. I may get to exercise my math skills in this course.

An email from one of the mailing lists I am on mentioned an upcoming circuits and electronics course being run online by MIT. The course starts this coming Monday. I signed up for it today. It might be a good refresher of information I already know and for what I may have forgotten.
