Re: units and measurement
I'm not really happy with that table; it breaks up the flow of the 'lesson'. I deliberately wrote out the information in prose so that it remained in a conversational style - as lectures should be. This isn't wikipedia. I actually don't know how to revert a page, but if you'd mind changing it back...Sojourner001 12:15, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
- Reverted. For future reference, to revert a change, open up the page history, pick the version to revert to, hit edit, fill in an edit summary, and hit Save. robchurch | talk 12:29, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
Topics of interest
I see you are developing some materials for thermodyanmics. Is this something you intend to do for the next little bit? I have some materials related to thermodyanamics I could add to Wikiversity, but it's always more fun if someone else is working on it too. What are your plans for the course materials? --HappyCamper 18:00, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
- Many topics link to the MIT course modules simply because the material is available. It's not to imply that we need to structure material around them. I share a number of your concerns as well regarding the organization of materials. As for basic physics, what do you mean by this? Mechanics? Statics and dynamics? We'll keep in touch. --HappyCamper 19:01, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
- Telecommunications is quite a beautiful subject if you ever pursue it. Actually, some of the recent research that is coming out centers on the connections between information theory and thermodynamic entropy. Basic entropy is a bit boring, especially if you simply calculate things like heat, energy, work...this is all quite mechanical stuff. See if w:Maxwell relations captivates you. --HappyCamper 19:42, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
Hey! Welcome to the world of music.... To answer a few of your questions:
- A major scale or chord is one that (this is how I remember and was taught) sounds 'happy', while minor sounds 'sad'. Does that make sense.
- A mode is an arrangement of the diatonic tones in an octave....... which probabvly confuses more.
Actually, come to think of it, im not helping much.... its 1am here... i'll give you a good answer tommorrow, when i'm awake! Bananagirl 14:48, 21 February 2007 (UTC)
Nice name, Are you inspired by Sojourner Truth? ---Draubb
