Checklist for writing helper pages

Completed by --Xintong Tian 11:40, 24 July 2013 (EDT)

Messages to the Future

  • Talk about eigenbasis.
  • Maybe give more examples.
  • Mention a few applications of eigentheory.
  • Flesh out the idea of determinants more.

References and footnotes

  • Not really applicable to this page.

Good writing

Quality of prose and page structuring

  • Beginning paragraph mentions how the page will talk about eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
  • Each section is relevant.
  • Title of sections is basically thesis of section.

Integration of Images and Text

  • N/A

Links to other pages

  • All relevant pages that use this helper page are linked.

Examples, Calculations, Applications, Proofs

  • Examples are provided.
  • Proofs are included (mostly of why determinant is zero).
  • The other way to write characteristic polynomial is an example of a specific topic that is only useful to the Systems of Linear Differential Equations page.

Mathematical Accuracy and precision of language

  • The math is error free (to my knowledge at least).
  • The style is casual but precise.
  • Defined many terms in the page to help the reader's understanding.


  • Text is in short paragraphs. Images aren't really applicable to this page.
  • Hided a less relevant section.
  • No white space.
  • No weird computer code in hidden text.
  • Viewed in different window sizes and no problems.
