I wish my math teacher was like that. How did he do all that stuff by the way? I am confused.

This is so awesome!!

Haha! I was looking at the professor speaking in that classroom, thinking to myself, he looks alot like the Nature of Math professor from my college, and that looks like the room that I took General Chemistry in. And turns out it is! I probably was walking by when he was lecturing too, since I have a lab next door at that time.

This prof is a such an awesome and kind Christian man, really funny guy too. Everyone tells me to take him for my math requirement but I can`t because I`m required to take calculus instead for my major :[

He teaches at Biola University, by the way.

This.. guy.. is... awesome! I can`t think of a better way of having kids want to learn other than being an entertaining teacher that also earns respect.

"For example, do you know why water evaporates in the sun, when it`s clearly below the boiling temperature? (the answer is AWESOME!)"

Um... something like how O2`s bonds are broken in the atmosphere by ultraviolet light, and that`s how the Ozone (O3) is eventually formed? That`s my guess, ultraviolet light breaking H2O`s hydrogen bonds...

This is a ridiculous stance to take.

It would mean that every scientist who runs simulations would have to know exactly how the computer works. They`d need to spend years getting a degree in computer science before they could even start learning their actual scientific specialty. Every doctor running a CAT scan would need a degree in physics.

Accumulation of knowledge is the cornerstone of civilisation. Having to learn everything yourself from the beginning would throw a huge spanner in the works of progress.

When in this format, it`s MUCH much easier to manipulate mathematically. Any electrical engineer will tell you that Fourier Transforms would be EVIL without complex exponentials.

And that`s just the tip of the iceberg. The shocks on your car are dampers; they take a step input and attempt to make the periodic function go to zero quickly and smoothly. This is often modeled in the Laplace domain, which, again, contains a plethora of complex numbers.

I could go on for hours, but I presume I`m boring most everyone but yourself. Get on wikipedia, and then just start following links. It`s like CRACK, I tell you. :-)

My schedule has been, and ALWAYS WILL BE horrible. I`m sure you say that dripping with sarcasm, but I actually do fit that ridiculous persona of the person always learning, always researching, always asking questions.

It`s really not that difficult a thing; everything is dependent on where one`s values lie. For me, I wholly believe that evil cannot exist without ignorance. And notwithstanding moral viewpoints, I think people REALLY cheat themselves out of a great deal of joy and excitement about the universe around them by ignoring the basic sciences that make modern life possible.

For example, do you know why water evaporates in the sun, when it`s clearly below the boiling temperature? (the answer is AWESOME!)

And to answer your question about imaginary numbers: many periodic functions can be represented in terms of sines and cosines (like the pulses of AC current). These sines and cosines can then be converted, using Euler`s Identity, into complex exponential format.

@Shunpo_31,
Well gosh, you must have a hard time doing anything, what with all the reading you need to keep up with in order to qualify for the use of all those wonderful technological marvels which you`re so adamant should only be used by those worthy few with a thorough versing in the science behind every feat of engineering since, well, the dawn of time.

I`m getting exhausted just trying to imagine what your schedule must be like.

"Why does this need to be known, anyway, I mean, come on. Who`s gonna divide by zero, or try to find the square root of a negative number in the real world?

Answers to those questions don`t need to exist, because there will be approximately ZERO times in your life that they`ll be useful in any way at all..."

You have the mind of a child. If you enjoy the use of electricity, you might want to learn a thing or two about imaginary numbers. Seeing how you`re using a computer right now, perhaps that might be important to you in some way.

And dividing by zero comes up a great deal more often than you might imagine. It`s an important limiting factor in...oh yeah, EVERYTHING.

It`s my personal opinion that people who don`t understand the science of something should never be allowed to use that technological device. The world would be a much better place.

In the words of Donald Trump,

"...umm, how exactly does that result in imaginary numbers? i is defined as the (-1)^0.5..."

... F*ck I hate algebra sometimes...

I hope I get a teacher like this...

See, this is why I love Halloween, it draws out the creative side of people... Some less so than others, but for the few people who actually doo have some creativity left in their media overloaded brains, it`s the time to shine.

BTW...

(0 x 1)/0 = (0 x 2)/0

Does not compute because you can`t divide by zero... It results in wierd ass imaginary numbers...

This needs to instituted into national curriculum.

Very original of him. Would have loved to have him as a math teacher.

"The sad thing is, after watching it again, the math geek in me wants to know the 1=2 problem that was skipped over."

0 x 1 = 0
0 x 2 = 2
0 x 1 = 0 x 2
(0 x 1)/0 = (0 x 2)/0
1=2
DOES NOT COMPUTE
