We had a great time with Sean Carroll this week. He answered questions ranging from HS curriculum to white holes and entropy. Here’s the recording.
Next week we’re going to be chatting with Ruth Chabay and Bruce Sherwood, authors of the popular physics text “Matter and Interactions”. Yes, I put the period after the quotation mark, bring it on Grammar Nazis!
Andy has created a google moderator page where you can ask and vote on questions for Sean Carroll for Wednesday’s discussion.
There are already a number of good questions there already, so check it out!

Tonight we talked all about the Modeling Curriculum out of ASU. Thanks for Frank and Laura for leading us.
Here’s the recording.
Can the people who agreed to discuss modeling (and contact other modelers to join our discussion) email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Andy Rundquist (email@example.com) to talk logistics?
Kevin and Mark showed us how LON-CAPA works and we had a discussion of the best use of such a system.
