Wikilinks In my opinion Wikipedia is well on its way to becoming the ”Universal Text- book”, with link chapters that span almost any subject especially in physics, mathematics, philosophy – things people care about. I would suggest that as you study, at your own convenience you take ”wikiromps” starting at any of the following links and following article links as it suits you until you have a pretty good understanding of the history and basic concept associated with the following ideas or laws. We’ll then work extensively in class and recitation to turn that initial understanding into deep operational knowledge. This list will expand as we encounter new concepts during the semester, although (as you’ll note) you may well get to them quite early on your wikiromps as links will carry you quickly from ”intro” level articles to grad- uate school level articles. Read and become familiar at your own pace, but don’t hold back on following links to more difficult or advanced articles.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
