Notebook comedy

A common feature of my notebooks is a tendency to get silly. Far from being a bad thing, I've found that it makes a class more memorable for me. It also makes for interesting things to post to LiveJournal.



Things in pre tags only to make formatting less painful for me. My handwriting isn't really that neat. Furthermore, the infinity symbol is rendered as "oo". Integral signs will usually, but not always, be rendered as "[S]". Margin scrawls outside of my standard outline format are denoted with TOP], LEFT], or RIGHT].

Calculus

LECTURE 1-1
I. Class Data
  A. Dr. Blank got the platform in the room installed
  B. Dr. Blank hates the textbook
  C. Dr. Blank has earned his nickname "Professor Tangent"
...
  K. Material
    1. Integration, Integration, Integration
    2. App of Int (this chapter sucks)
    3. Diffy Q
    4. ooSeries
...
TOP] Greek letter xi                All d/dx rules are
     ("loop, loop, buttocks")       Newton's fault
(Undefined vars are ANYTHING and are happy)
II. Integration Basics
...
  D. REMEMBER THE CHAIN RULE
    (image removed)
    ...
    Suddenly, it all makes sense
  E. Remember Mean Value Thm:

LEFT] integral
        sign
         |
        / \    differential
        |          |      
         \     X   dx  ==
          |    |          \
        \_/  integrand     equals, you dumbass

  F. [S]: The True Holy Sigil of the Hyper-Froody Integral

TOP] LeCtUrE 1-2
Find relation to arcfoo and arccofoo
                        foo(arcfoo(y)) = y

I. Solving for arcfoo
...
II. Integration: The Area Problem
  A. Solves for arbitrary things, really (sort of)
  B. (image removed)
  C. Approximateion of area: rectangular fill
    1. Sharply sided figures have definite areas
    2. Fill curve- almost- with figures of clear area
    3. The Holy True Godly Integral: filling it with an infinite number of rectangles
...
III. Solving integrals
  A. Limit can be infinitely fugly
  ...
  C. The Slow Approximate Way: Calculate n areas, add them
    1. That becomes unhappy at infinity

TOP] Lecture 1-4
                   [xi]: "xi"
 I have conquered my phobia of Greek letters

I. Area functions
...
  E. Fuction is area under a curve between specified points
    1. duh
...
II: More shiznit about about FTC
  A. FTC2 gives antiderivatives
    1. That only sounds useful
    2. To evaluate the formula in FTC2, you need an antiderivative.
       a. So it gives an antiderivative... if you give it an antiderivative.
       b. AGGH!!!! WHEN DOES IT ALL END???!?!?!?!!??!
       c. GWARGH! ROAR! GROWRRL!
       d.         meep
...
V. The erf fxn
  A. Nominee for "best math name ever"

TOP]2-1 "There's no algebraic way to make any sense of that." --Dr. Blank

I. Teh Substitootin' Rule
...
  K. Doesn't have to be "u"; "w", "v", "fhqwhgads", or perhaps "[:)]" works for symbol


Psychology
...
II. Chapter 2: Methods of Psychology
...
  B. observation --> theory --> hypothesis --> check --> publish --> $$$
  C. The Lessons of Clever Hans
    1. People are essentially gullible... people are essentially dumb

       i. B. F. Skinner (had a huge fugly forehead)
     b. "More simpler" than classical conditioning
...
TOP] "Classical is not just behaviour- wait... uh, operant- uhm, classic- shape- bargle zeeb flomp?"--Classmate


All right, so I've got less for Psychology. It's easier to insert comedy into mathematics...
