Yea, I know what you mean. Just look what happened to the slide rule, Teflon, lasers, PET scans, and so forth.Awesomesauce
I hope this actually gets applied to things, instead of falling into obscurity like most cool tech.
That't the cool tech that does get applied, theres plenty of cool stuff that has yet to be applied wide scale.Yea, I know what you mean. Just look what happened to the slide rule, Teflon, lasers, PET scans, and so forth.

That is a great idea. Students need to "see" the problem, not simply solve it by brute force. Take the thought experiment of a rope that is tightly strung around the equator. Now, someone adds just 6 feet to it. How far will the rope be raised uniformly around the earth? Any idiot can solve that with a calculator, but to solve it with a slide rule (or in your head) requires understanding the problem.Purdue doesn't allow Calculus 1 students to use calculators...
