So far in my research, I’ve spent the majority of my time learning the requisite information and terminology to do my work.  I am working with equations of motion for field vectors involved in cosmic inflation.  These field vectors include time and multiple dimensions of space, such as x and y.  I find these equations […]

Update III: Proposals for Modifying Introductory Physics at W&M

As the summer comes to a close and classes start up again, it’s time to wrap up what has been a fascinating and valuable project for me.  After having gone through a bunch of research on physics education and other issues that surround it, I am struck by how much remains to be done.  There […]

Update II: The Ideal Role of Puns in Physics Education (or, “A Discussion of Transfer of Learning”):

  For many years now, I’ve had a punning problem (others call it a problem, I think it’s just fine).  It’s gotten so bad (good) by now that it’s not at all uncommon for friends to imagine puns in perfectly innocuous sentences, and in one particularly egregious situation, a simple “hello” on my part was […]
