R&R

It’s been one of those weeks, so Doc is taking the week to get-in a little R&R before the leaves start to turn. We’ll be back right around Labor Day with an opening discussion of Statics and Strength of Materials. Until then…

Let’s talk about everyone’s favorite subject…

That’s right! Let’s talk… thermo. As in… Thermodynamics. I know, I know. This is precisely nobody’s favorite subject. But hear me out on this, as someone who, probably just like you, hated Thermodynamics with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns. Could be in my case that Thermo was one of only 2 “C’s” I… Continue reading Let’s talk about everyone’s favorite subject…

A little more math…

Hopefully you’re sufficiently enticed to continue to journey with me through the dark-valley of elementary engineering mathematics. Wonderful. I’ll do my best to try to keep it all short and sweet, but be forewarned that this is literally only the beginning. We’re going to drill deeply into the basics here over the next weeks and… Continue reading A little more math…

It occurred to me that simply dropping a post about some basic math that we’ve all either already known about (and perhaps forgotten) is probably not the best way to get your attention and keep you wanting to come back here. As I hope to have at least one new blog post up every week… Continue reading Teaser

Some preliminaries

OK, I hear you… But if we’re going to discuss engineering and mathematics at any level other than the most superficial then by golly we had best make sure we’re talking the same language – and in the modern world, the language of engineering and science is… math. So, if anyone told you there would… Continue reading Some preliminaries
