Re: First-year Physics Major. Not sure where to go from here

The most amount of trouble I have is setting up a problem. I can solve the math, and I can conceptually grasp what's going on, but when I try to translate the physical concepts into math equations, I mess up/have no idea where to even start.

First-year Physics Major. Not sure where to go from here

Hey all, I'm in a bit of a predicament. I absolutely adore physics, which is why I'm majoring in it (alongside Math). This is my first semester taking upper-level physics courses (i.e. everything but the Intro courses that Engineers also take). Currently, I'm enrolled in Intro to Modern (which is ea...

Re: 2011 in Music.

So far this year, Silverstein's new album "Rescue" is in my top 5 ever, and D.R.U.G.S.'s self-titled is really good.

Enter Shikari and Of Mice & Men both released songs this past week that are AMAZING!! =D

Re: Double Majoring?

Have you thought of something like Physics? It can be very calc based. You may like it... But in all honesty, if you can't think of something you'd actually, you shouldn't do a double major... You should spend more time on math. If you enjoy something, maybe minor in it... I'm only double majoring b...

Re: xkcd-ians Recommendations for Graphing Calcs...

Well, my (probable) math teacher responded to an e-mail I sent him about this, he recommended nSpire. Just to check - can it do all the same awesome crap as 89?

Re: xkcd-ians Recommendations for Graphing Calcs...

I'd get the 84-Plus. I find it to flow so much more than the nSpire. The nSpire is incredibly slow and very difficult to navigate. Tbh, at this point, the 84-plus is relatively cheap, and in 4 years (I'm assuming you're a freshman), the 89, and even the 200, are going to be obsolete, so don't waste ...

In fact the music isn't even it's own thing so it's not like you can even evaluate it standalone like that, the music-environment-listener is the full system and forms a state with complex interactions between all 3 subsystems that determines whether the music does what it's meant to.
