Fast Paced

The first exam, fourth quiz, ninth chapter, second lab, second week, and a ton of learning and problem solving are behind us. The pace of the course is quite something … as you can see in this picture as Dr. Evans presents a lecture about collisions.

Lecture at a blurrying pace - or - my cheap digital zoom ;)

DUML students are very aware of the pace — intense— is the word. I try to provide as much encouragement and support as possible. Inevitably, at the end of the five weeks, when these fine students can reflect on the experience, they find that they have learned more than they would have thought was possible and that the effort provides a bond between them. Case in point: I just got an e-mail from a former DUML Physhead who is coming to Beaufort with two other physheads from last years’ class. Like prisoners of war, as I like to tell them [with large grin in place], the friendships can last a lifetime!
I am looking forward to doing lunch with Zack, Maggie and Laura this weekend.
