Just finished reading Dava Sobel's 'A More Perfect Heaven' - the story of Copernicus and heliocentricity. A very good book. Worth far more than Shiploads price of $0.10.
And the closing chapter is fascinating. It deals with Owen Gingerich's "Great Copernicus Chase" where he tracked down several hundred of Copernicus' book and researched the annotations in each. Far from it being the book nobody read - as Arthur Koestler described it in 'The Sleepwalkers' it looked like the book everybody read.
And Kepler, who established that the orbits of the planets were in fact ellipses and not circles, owned a second-hand copy which already had a marginal note reading 'ellipse'.
Anyway, the details are in Sobel. And in a recent book by Gingerich himself. And in a JSTOR article which you may have free access to via your library or university.

Reminded of one of our delightful school poems: Silver Slowly, silently, now the moon Walks the night in her silver shoon; This way, and that, she peers, and sees Silver fruit upon silver trees; One by one the casements catch Her beams beneath the silvery thatch; Couched in his kennel, like a log, With paws of silver sleeps the dog; From their shadowy cote the white breasts peep Of doves in a silver-feathered sleep; A harvest mouse goes scampering by, With silver claws and a silver eye; And moveless fish in the water gleam, By silver reeds in a silver stream. Walter de la Mare

Unfortunately, Education Review, that's not a shock finding. ATAR's have to do with demand and capacity. If there's huge capacity and little demand, ATAR's are low, to encourage anybody. If there's little capacity and high demand, ATAR's are high. The numbers are not related to difficulty or what standard candidates 'should' be. http://goo.gl/jJXKf

Correlation versus Causation

Redditor Jasonp55 has a neat demonstration of the perils of confusing correlation with causation, and his well-chosen example makes this a potentially useful chart for discussing this issue with friends who won't vaccinate themselves and their kids.

Nice cartoon - thanks +Laura Gibbs !

COURSE EVALS We got our course evals back late last night apparently for the Fall semester - I'd be curious to hear from others what that experience is like. A great thing about our online evals is that we don't have to wait weeks and weeks for the data to come in (as we used to with the paper ones). Instead, we get the results as soon as the final grades have been processed. Nothing really unusual for me this time - encouraging feedback, lots of happy students, high satisfaction, all of which I feel is important for me teaching online. Sad to say, the students' evaluation of the course is literally the only kind of evaluation that happens - so, deeply flawed as that evaluation is (eegad, I could go on for pages and pages about how flawed it is), it is the only evaluation of record. Given that online courses are badly disparaged by the other faculty, having detailed student comments and positive results is important to me. Some students are really generous in writing out detailed comments about what they liked about the course, so much so that people who want to know what my courses are like can get a pretty good idea just from reading the student comments. The numbers are meaningless, but the comments definitely paint a picture of the class with enough amazings and wonderfuls etc. that if anybody cares about what is going on my classes (hmmm, do they care?), they can find out from reading the student comments.

So, yes, the overall comments are positive - but, as every semester, there are a few students who protest the amount of work in the class. I figure if I am going to be criticized for something, being criticized for the amount of work is the safe way to go (esp. for the people who believe that online courses lack the "rigor" of f2f courses). I require students to do 6-8 hours of work per week every week, which I know is indeed more than what happens in most Gen. Ed. classes, where the standard model is to sit in a chair for 3 hours per week, listen to the professor talk, take notes, cram for the midterm, cram for the exam, stay up all night writing a paper or two, and that's all. For students who expect that routine, a class where they are doing reading, writing, and responding to each other's work every week is a shock.

I make sure that they realize the work load starting in the first week (the first week has a work load comparable to all the other weeks in the class), and they probably realize at that time that they should drop… but they cannot drop the class, even knowing that it is not a good fit for them. Gen. Ed. courses are required for graduation, and finding a Gen. Ed. course that is open for enrollment AND fits into your schedule is really hard. Most students end up in online classes simply out of desperation to find a Gen. Ed. course that meets their schedule. So, even when people realize that this course is NOT the right one for them because it requires 6-8 hours of reading and writing every week (no sitting in chair, no taking notes, no cramming for exam at the last minute), there is nothing they can do about it. They cannot drop the class if they want to keep their full course load (for financial aid) and make progress to graduation (Gen. Ed. is required).

I thought this comment was especially revealing: "I enjoyed the course but I would not recommend it to my friends because it is way too time-consuming for a college student." This encapsulates the finding of the National Survey of Student Engagement which shows that college students are indeed very very very busy people … but they are not busy because of doing work for their classes. Instead, they are busy being college students - working, sometimes working full-time; very engaged in their social lives, sometimes raising a family of their own already; involved in extracurricular activities of all kinds, etc. These are all things that have a real, personal urgency… far more real and often far more urgent than the unreal and impersonal experience of a college course, especially a course that a student is taking simply because it is required in order to graduate.

One quick note: I get so much pushback from the administrators at my school for not using the course management system as my one-and-only online teaching tool (we are supposed to use Desire2Learn for everything… ugh). They contend that students will be confused by using a separate tool for publishing their website, a separate tool for blogging, various tools for image editing and other media creation, etc. … but not so: students often mention how glad they are to have the chance to acquire these technical skills and no one ever says "I wish we had used Desire2Learn instead." I think that gets at the reality v. unreality dimension that I mentioned in the previous paragraph: the content of Gen. Ed. classes do not necessarily connect up with students' here-and-now reality… but learning how to become more proficient with technology is very much a plus for the here-and-now.___Nice cartoon - thanks +Laura Gibbs !

Just wondering, science and maths heavies - in all the string theory/multiverse hubbub, has anyone wrestled with the possible interactions of other "verses" with this one?
Speaking as an ignoramus. (In the rarefied realms of strings and multiverses) it seems to be taken as axiomatic that there is total independence, but must that be valid? Is there something like a hyperspace that the "verses" inhabit/construct/respond to, and which therefore can 'leak' some information across them?

Excellent discussion on teacher quality and performance assessment. Yes, I admit a personal interest. (In retirement!) It's a podcast link.:http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/sundayextra/panel/4250782

Looks useful win-win-win

Those who have been following me know that I have been busy promoting our solar-powered LED light, used to replace toxic and expensive kerosene lights in developing countries.

We have a new supply ready to ship in Australia, so get yours now if you live or have friends/family Down Under (due to postal regulations we cannot ship them outside Australia).

They are not just perfect for the poor, but also for the outdoors and for photographers! I know that several photographers here on G+ have already used them for light painting :)

So get yours now, or buy some for your Ozzie friends and family. If you don't have any Ozzie friends: please share this with somebody who does and then book yourself a trip Down Under!___Looks useful win-win-win

Just been exercising my computer with proper factor sums - originally looking for perfect numbers (numbers which equal their proper factor sums), then seguéing into untouchable numbers (Numbers which cannot be generated from the proper factor sum of any other number). While doing this I notice that there are around 1/2 as many unique odd sums as even, although the total number of odd sums exceeds even sums.

Any thoughts on
1. why there are fewer unique odd sums?
2. How far past an untouchable number candidate needs computing before being sure the candidate is indeed untouchable?
