Here is one teachers perspective on this issue: As a professor of chemistry, I give a group project in each class that I teach. One of the things that I do is to allow everyone the chance to pick who they want to group with (up to five members). If someone simply does not want to be part of a group,...

Being a chemistry professor, I usually have many students that struggle with simple mathematics skills. But, they need to improve quite fast to be able to survive the class (there are many complicated unit conversions). That means that they will have to work on it with worksheets, as that is the bes...

I think I'm required to participate in any thread about watches :) I own dozens of them and hang out in a forum of watch enthusiasts. What's comfortable for one person isn't for another, but it sounds like your primary concern is that it stay put without being too tight. That's a tough one. I think...

If I write them down, I will remember them regardless on what method I try to forget them with. I am an extremely good at remembering things written down or typed out. In my field of science you always have to keep a written record of your experimental research, so it is almost second nature for me...

I used to really hate science until I was well into middle age. One thing that surprised me about it is that it is very creative! Sometimes I think you have to be as creative as an artist. Think about it, how could Darwin (as an example), figure out Evolution without having the imagination to see i...

^^^^^ :thumleft: the discoverer of the benzene molecule dreamt of a snake eating its tail. so it is a good thing that you are able to tap into your dreamland wisdom for waking problems :thumright: Yes and no. It can be problematic though. If I am very angry before I go to bed, the dreams can take a...

I just about got through my biology degree as I had an abusive research adviser too. I should have known something was off when each student was given a choice of what professor to work under and he had several slots open. i.e. no one wanted to work with him. I answered a question that he thought w...

Yes, I graduated with my Bachelors, Masters and PhD in chemistry from different universities. It did take me longer than some would, but part of that was due to an abusive research adviser in grad school who kept switching research projects on me (and never letting me finish them on purpose). It was...

You will likely have better luck transferring college classes between schools within the same state compared to out of state schools. I switched to an out of state university as an undergrad and found that out the hard way. (I was a dual major at the time at a rather large university and decided to ...

Sorry for the rant in advance, but I think it needs to be said: I have noticed that it seems that many of the incoming college students are so unprepared for the world we live in. What I mean is that they do not see the big picture of what college is for: to prepare you for your potential career out...

My dreams are very different than other people's dreams. Most of the time, I solve problems in my sleep, whether I am dreaming or not. Guess being able to design molecular structures in my dreams, waking up and sketching them out to see what they could be used for would be quite strange to some. I h...

Being a college professor, I can attest that there exist those who teach for the test only and not for student learning skills. That has been something that has always bothered me, even when I was in college many years ago. I equate it to the teacher shortchanging the student, as they overpaid for w...

I am limited on what I can discuss on this topic (for research reasons), but I can give you something to ponder on. This molecule was designed back in 2005 at Rice University to determine how buckminsterfullerene move over flat metallic surfaces: http://www.edinformatics.com/nanotechnology/nanocar.h...
