### For Those Wanting to Study on Their Own

I have a book on Lulu called "Self-Instruction and Teaching: Science Education for the New Millenium". This is all about how to learn effectively, and how to teach others. You can find it here: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/george1053

### Starting a new Writing Project

I will be working on a textbook for University Physics, called University Physics with Modern Physics. I know, terribly original title. This book will be freely available as a series of downloads from the web site www.madscitech.org/upmp starting today. I envison this as a bunch of Mathematica-based cdfs (computational documents) and pdfs. I will also be able to put together custom textbooks to suit the needs of specific classes. These will be available at Lulu (www.lulu.com), and through the web site above. At this stage I am working on the structure of the contents. In general, here are the contents:

- Introduction to Physics
- Mathematics
- Mathematical Physics
- Theoretical Physics
- Computational Physics
- Experimental Physics
- Classical Physics
- Modern Physics
- Using Calculus to Model Motion
- Introduction to Mathematica
- Error Analysis
- Newtonian Mechanics
- Thermodynamics and Energy
- Fields and Waves
- Problems with Classical Physics
- Einstein's Relativity
- Quantum Physics
- Applications of Relativity and Quantum Physics
- Differential Equations

### The Web Page for The Theoretical Minimum is Up!

### Book Update

The book,

*The Theoretical Minimum*, will be published by Basic Books at the end of January of 2013. There will be a companion web site: www.madscitech.org/tm, it is not yet up! Don't go there and then tell me there is no link!
