    These would be handwritten scanned images, high quality so they are legible (unless someone can provide me with a hiqh quality OCR). Before I start scanning 50 pages of notes I want to know if anyone would actually like/appreciate/use/need them. They would be a great reference tool to anyone who needs them, a study aid, or just something to make high school kids appreciate the fact that they're math classes still involve numbers.

    Sure. Why not. Might be interesting. I tend to hoard this kind of stuff. I wish I had all my old biology notes from the day. Wonder what I did with them? Probably straight in the trash after high school.

    What a dumbass....

    Anyway.
    You might consider using Lizardtech's Document Express to do it with. It uses a djvu format that is specially designed for scanned documents like that. It keeps the file size WAY down.

    I've never actually converted documents myself, but it should be relatively easy (one of these days I'm going to convert over a bunch of D&D scanned stuff. It takes up too much space as pdf and I think djvu will drastically reduce the size. (Yes. I'm a nerd. Haven't played d&d in years though. And there's a good chance I'll never play again... Pity.)

    It costs MASS bucks but you can get a 60 day trial.

    There's also an open source alternative. I'm unsure how easy it is to encode using it. I know of a viewer but am not sure what other software might be needed for encoding.

    I pesonally wouldn't. Maybe if there were people here who took Calc in college or high school now, then they would be interested.

    It didn't seem to run under wine too well and I don't have a Windows box, so I guess I will have to try other methods.

    I'm taking high school calc this upcoming school year, I wouldn't mind taking a look at your notes.

    http://www.math.odu.edu/~bogacki/videnum/index.htm<--- visual demonistration of numerical methods which is very rare
    http://calculus.sjdccd.cc.ca.us/<--- the best URL I found in explaining the techniques used to approximate solutions of diffrential equations (Numerical analysis) also using mathematica

    enjoy
