Have a great term!

With all you have got to study, don't forget your prayer and Bible reading time, either..... :)

Thank you very much Farouk!

I won't forget my Bible and prayer time! Coincidentally, I seem to pray hardest during the school year... "Please Lord let me pass..." :wink3

Right now it seems that I'm learning how to learn. Taking classes to get ready for calculus and classes to learn how to write in college - lol. I need it though, my last math was back in '68. Oh, and a Human Development course to fill out the credits (12 this quarter) -- about Stress. Took that one because I heard there wasn't any homework. When I talk to my advisers they seem to be of the opinion that I should take it slow and easy. Who knows? It does give me time to focus on each though. :yes

I am finishing my senior year, but have one more to go, since I started out in television and radio production, and switched to political science (with a concentration in international relations) and sociology. I'm taking the standard five-course load also:

Introduction to Sociology
Global Inequalities (with a Marxist professor :biggrin)
Modern Political Thought (Locke, Hobbes, Marx, Rawls and all those great modern thinkers)
American Foreign Policy
Post-Communism (comparative post-Soviet eastern European politics)

Math? :couch

If you want, I could help with math. I am pretty competent all the way up to pre-calculus.

Wow, that's a heavy workload right there. I'm not looking forward to being a senior :scared

Thanks for the offer! I'm going to get a math tutor over the summer and hope that helps.

I took Western Civ I last semester. It was a good course. I really enjoyed it. I'm taking US History I this semester 'cause I couldn't fit WCII into my schedule which I am kinda bummed about.

Hmm not quite. I'm not sure why it's called mechatronics but it is the combination of electrical and mechanical systems. Basically you have some system that includes both mechanical and electrical components such as a motor and you convert it to the frequency domain so that you don't have to worry about what is mechanical or electrical anymore, everything is simply mathematical. Once it is in that form you can evaluate the system's stability, calculate its steady state and transient responses, and make the necessary changes to the system. We will be designing and implementing a cruise control system for a remote control car during this course, so that would be a practical application.

Now just cause I know what mechatronics entails doesn't mean that I know how to do all of this stuff yet lol. I just know a bit about it because one of my previous courses touched on some of this stuff briefly.

I figured you'd appreciate it, since your avatar is of a Transformer. Or is that from Gundam? I never can tell.

that is a veritech fighter also known as an alpha fighter from the show called robotech, which was produced by carl macek , who also produced the original Gundam in the 70's.
