The actual INTELLECTUAL INFORMATION on Dave's Math Tables is public domain (no restrictions). Sources for the information on DMT include: what I read/heard in class, what I derived, that obtained from my parents' college textbooks, MathcadŽ results, responses to newsgroup questions, amoung others. Almost all are not specific to any one source. Credit is given to the following sources in particular for their contributions to the calculus, trig, stat, conic and advanced sections:
Lide, David R., CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, 72nd edition. Boston: CRC Press, 1991-1992 ed.
Morrey, Charles B. Jr.; Protter, Murray H. College Calculus with Analytic Geometry. Reading: Addison-Wesley, 1964.
Shenk, Al. Calculus and Analytic Geometry. San Diego: Goodyear Publishing Co., 1979.
Simmons, George F. Calculus Gems. New York: McGraw-Hill, 1992.
Widder, David V. Advanced Calculus, 2nd edition. New York: Dover Publications, 1989.
Graphs were created with MathcadŽ software, with the exception of 3-D conics created with Bryce-2 software. In addition, MathcadŽ proved invaluable for some of the more complicated derivations. Tables, such as the trig and stat number tables, are original.
Thanks are given to those who have offered tips and error corrections. There are so many who have offered small, helpful tips that it would be cumbersome to list them all here. The following are comments from users:
I noticed that you have put together an interesting and useful set of pages for teachers. If you don't mind, I will place a lik to your web site from ours. You have done a good job of presenting math expressions given the constraints of HTML. For an alternative way of doing this, you might be interested in looking at our MathType product. The latest version, 3.5, can produce nice looking GIF images of equations. Take a look at our sample pages at http://www.mathtype.com. - Paul Topping email@example.com 9/1/97.
Hello there Dave. I saw your site named on television today. They spoke of great sites for children. They were right. You did a wonderful jog. You know what I would like to see also. Fractions, Square roots and factoring info. This is a cool site, and I shall save it. Ddawnstarr 8/27/97

...I am going to use your Trig graphs as study guides for my pre-calc class. ...Hastings H.S., Hastings, MN 6/23/97
Dear Dave: I love what you are doing, but what do you mean "besides spelling"? It's important for visual learning--even if numbers are more important (for some of us) than words.... Besides, there are educational snobs out here who just won't believe you are an educated person if you can't spell. Thanks for your help. Sincerely, A Well Wisher 5/3/97 (I've since corrected the spelling.)
I'm a student of oceanography in the city of Ensenada, Mexico. I wanted to, both, thank you and congratulate you on your page. I was struggling with some special functions , and thanks to your page I've been able to solve my problems. Well, just wanted to let you know. Patricia 4/21/97

Whether you're looking for a basic multiplication table or something as mind-bending as a "fourier series," you'll find some help at Dave's aptly named Math Tables. A fine way to calculate how little you know about math. http://www.sisweb.com/math/tables.htm
Your Web site, "Dave's Math Tables," is being recognized with the Dr. Matrix
Award for Science Excellence from "Dr. Matrix' Web World of Science." "Dave's
Math Tables" is also being honored with prominent display as a select site at
http://www.nr.infi.net/~drmatrix/award.htm with the category: Mathematics. Sites receiving this award are distinguished by the quality of their content
alone. A flashy Web site will not receive this award if its content lacks
interest and integrity. A simple Web site will receive this award if it serves
the interests of discovery, mental enrichment and thoughtful enjoyment. This
award doesn't go to "cool" sites. It goes to the great sites. It's not a daily
or weekly award, but an award based on presence, here and now. It is given in
gratitude, with no other request but that you keep doing what you're doing.
