Welcome! This site is intended solely for the use of my current students. My intent is to provide access to as many of the materials used in our classes as possible, along with some extras that might either be interesting, or fun, or thought provoking. Let me know if there is something you want added to the site and I'll do my best to find it and add it. Like all websites - upkeep is just a factor of time - I'll do my best.

Man's mind stretched to a new idea never goes back to its original dimensions.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841-1935)

Our world is rapidly changing - we all know that, but what does it mean for us as individuals and as citizens? What are the trends that are shaping our lives? What are we studying for and what are we preparing for?

Why is our world the way it is? Why do some have so much and some so little?
