Links for course[edit]

Pages you might want to edit[edit]

Here is something I wrote. Don't hesitate to do a major rewrite, even to the point of replacing some of my opinions with your own. If I don't like it, we can discuss it and maybe bring in a third opinion. Edits are extremely easy to revert. If you see a paragraph you don't like -- delete it --Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 03:03, 9 October 2015 (UTC)

  1. OpenStax_College
  2. Euclid's Elements#The_fifth_postulate is a completely blank section. You can go there and try to summarize the Wikipedia article. It's ok to copy/paste short sections and heavily edit, removing all that clutter that fills Wikipedia articles. I will watch that page and help you properly attribute it with a footnote.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 03:12, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
  3. In Euclid's Elements an easy and interesting article to write is the "collapsable compass". My understanding is that Euclid's compass couldn't be moved while rigid. Somehow you had to "walk" the circle to its new location --Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 15:04, 9 October 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia's Lénárt sphere[edit]

I added figure captions to the talk page of Wikipedia:Lénárt sphere. You should put that article on your wikipedia watch list. To do this, visit Wikipedia:Lénárt sphere and click the star next to Read__Edit__Add topic at the top of the page. Then check your Wikipedia watchlist every now and then.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 18:36, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

Next project[edit]

Hi Pondnotwho,

I am starting another project and asking you to help just a little bit. The primary will be another student. Both of you need to keep you identities out of Wikiversity, at least for now.

Your next project will involve creating a page that looks at this question:

Are all modern computers Turing Machines in some way?

I found this website: http://goodmath.scientopia.org/2012/06/24/turing-machines-what-they-are-what-they-arent/

You might have to create the page, since you are autoconfirmed, but the other person will do most of the editing. Instructions will be placed on the talk page. I'm not sure yet where to put the page. Perhaps my userspace would be best for now

User:Guy vandegrift/Turing

Work with the other person to create the page. I will be around if it turns out that you cannot create pages in somebody elses userspace.4
