Scoring Rubrick

I’ve added a scoring rubrick to the grades page so you know exactly what we are looking for when we grade your notebooks. But it is still ok to COPY (gasp!) what your classmates do in terms of keeping a good notebook.

Commenting in different notebooks

Since we are all using different notebooks to keep track of our data, it can be unclear exactly how you should leave a comment in a new platform. Well it will no longer be unclear after this little tutorial. Let’s get into it: WordPress: This is by far the easiest to comment in. Just click […]

Makeup HW: Ted Talks

If you missed the Physics Colloquium on Friday there is a makeup opportunity scheduled for Thursday evening at 9pm. Those that missed will watch a TED Talk by MIchael Nielsen about Open Science (approx 15min long) and will “live” tweet the talk in conjunction with myself and whomever else wants to get in on the […]

Twitter Homework

Lightning: Physics and Protection Systems talk by Marvin Morris, illustrated by Anthony Salvagno

From my count there were 8 of you present and active in the live tweet session: George, Maria, Adrian, Paul, Skylar, Brian, John, and Stephen. If I missed you then please leave a comment.

Information overload? It doesn’t have to be…

I know, you guys are pissed you have to do twitter as well as the notebooks. At least I didn’t make you do Facebook, Twitter, Google +, LinkedIn, Flickr, etc. And I know you may feel overwhelmed with the amount of things you have to keep track of, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. […]

Lecture and Lab Cancellation

For the week of Monday Feb 06 both lecture and lab are cancelled. An email has been sent to each of you. If you did not get the email but are seeing this page then what are you complaining about?


This is primarily how Steve and Anthony will communicate with the class. All notebooks can be accessed via the main page and updates on what is going on will occasionally be highlighted in this space. We may also experiment with some stuff and all that will be posted here as well. Feel free to leave […]
