About Leveraging Learning Resources
The purpose of this website is to provide a learning resource by providing my course notes, examples, and useful links. While this site currently serves as a repository for my work, it will, in the future, become a testing and promotion grounds for student research.
"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.
