I have a son who's currently a first year physics student. As you can imagine, I occasionally pass along a link or two to him pointing to stuff on the web I think he might find particularly interesting or useful. Thinking on that fact, I surmised that perhaps other science students might find those links interesting or useful as well. Hence, this series of posts here on the blog.
By necessity and circumstance, the items I've chosen will be influenced by my son's choice of major and my own interest in computational approaches to science.
- Meet Science: What is "peer review"?
- Gödel's Proof of Incompleteness!
- Some Astonishingly Bad Professional Advice (And by extension, some good advice)
- Building Your E-Village
- Secrets of the Most Successful College Students
- The Philosophie of Gaps
- How to Determine If A Controversial Statement Is Scientifically True (similar here)
- Two Solitudes Illustrated (academia vs. industry)
- Computational Thinking
- The philosophy of the Higgs
- Why Should You Think Like a Scientist?
- Modern Physics and Scientific Thinking
