Cool linky stuff for science undergrads (15): What it's like to understand advanced mathematics, How to write your first math paper and more

Aug 24 2016 Published by under around the web, ugrad links, Uncategorized

I have a son who will be finishing up his undergrad in physics this coming school year with an eye towards possible graduate work in math. As you can imagine, I occasionally see a link or two on the web that I think he might particularly interesting or useful. Thinking on that fact, I surmised that perhaps a) this kind of post might be more efficient and b) other undergrad students might find those links interesting or useful as well. Hence, this series of posts here on the blog.

I have a bit of a backlog of these so might post a few between now and the beginning of the fall academic term.

Cool linky stuff for science undergrads (14): What is Open Science? and more

May 03 2016 Published by under around the web, culture of science, ugrad links

I have a son who's currently a fourth year physics undergrad who is headed more the direction of math rather than physics for the possibility of grad school. As you can imagine, I may occasionally pass along a link or two to him pointing to stuff on the web I think they might find particularly interesting or useful. Thinking on that fact, I surmised that perhaps a) this kind of post might be more efficient and b) other undergrad students might find those links interesting or useful as well. Hence, this series of posts here on the blog.

The items I've chosen are mostly geared towards science undergrads (hence, the title of the series), but I hope many of them will be of broader interest.

And yes, it's been quite a long time since I last did one of these posts so I'll probably need a few over the coming weeks to catch up.

Cool linky stuff for science undergrads (13): The rise of astrostatistics

Nov 05 2014 Published by under around the web, ugrad links

I have a son who's currently a third year physics undergrad and another son who's in first year philosophy. As you can imagine, I may occasionally pass along a link or two to them pointing to stuff on the web I think they might find particularly interesting or useful. Thinking on that fact, I surmised that perhaps other undergrad students might find those links interesting or useful as well. Hence, this series of posts here on the blog.

Since I'm a science librarian, the items I've chosen are mostly geared towards science undergrads (hence, the title of the series), but I hope many of them will be of broader interest.

Cool linky stuff for science undergrads (12): How to Read & Discuss a Book

Sep 04 2014 Published by under around the web, ugrad links

I have a son who's currently a physics undergrad, just starting in third year. And another son who's starting first year philosophy. As you can imagine, I may occasionally pass along a link or two to them pointing to stuff on the web I think they might find particularly interesting or useful. Thinking on that fact, I surmised that perhaps other undergrad students might find those links interesting or useful as well. Hence, this series of posts here on the blog.

Cool linky stuff for science undergrads (11): You Are Not a Digital Native: Privacy in the Age of the Internet

By necessity and circumstance, the items I've chosen will be influenced by my son's choice of major and my own interest in the usefulness of computational approaches to science and of social media for outreach and professional development.
