I am currently in Ottawa teaching a pre-calculus mini course called "math matters". It's not compulsory, but even so, I have 69 very keen engineering students in my section this year. They seem to particularly enjoy my segues into black holes and all things relativistic! I think they're one of the most interested and brightest classes I've taught so far, but then again I've only taught it 3 times.
I think this mini course is a great idea to get everyone on the same page before starting calculus at University. You can get a synopsis of the course here.
What a week! The article my group and I have been working on for so long has finally been published in Physical Review Letters. Not only has the article been published in this noteworthy journal, but it has been highlighted in their free magazine, "Physics", by science populariser David Voss. Voss' freelance writer work appears Science, Nature, Wired, Technology Review, Physics World, and New Scientist !
