Hello! You have reached the “Reference Material” page. This page is a list posts that have explained things well and are good to look back at for future posts and for reference material.

I redid this to try to make it easier to access/refer back to. This is really NinjaDevo's post. He did a fantastic job organising it for the forum. He no longer has time to upkeep it so I have copied it over into my thread so that I can edit it.

Here is the original 2 posts by

Melody: http://web2.0calc.com/questions/information-pages-worth-keeping-or-developing

NinjaDevo: http://web2.0calc.com/questions/information-pages-worth-keeping-or-developing_1

This page is broken down into different sections as to try to make it easier to refer back to. For the most part, the topics are organized by “grade levels” of mathematics (like Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus, etc.)

If you would like to add something to this thread, you can either send me a message with what you want added and I'll edit this post, or you can reply to the post with what you want added. If you reply to this post, please only post one reply and then just edit it as you want to add more information. This will help to keep the thread somewhat organized and not too messy.

Remember, good manners are always important and very much appreciated!
