2.2 Taking responsibility for your own learning

Not much of this unit conforms to the traditional pattern I mentioned earlier – the theory-example-exercise pattern. In particular, you will find you are expected to discover much of it for yourself. Why is this? This is a legitimate question and deserves a full answer. One year, a student at a residential summer school complained I had not taught him properly. I was, he told me, an expert and so why did I not demonstrate how to tackle the problem he was working on and pass my expertise on

LSE Festival 2019 | How to Remain Sane in the Age of Populism [Audio]
Speaker(s): Elif Shafak | Until not so long ago, some parts of the world—namely, the West— were thought to be solid, steady, stable. Other parts of the world—namely, the non-West— were thought to be liquid, not yet settled. Since 2016 it has become increasingly clear to citizens across the world that there are no solid and in fact, we are all living in liquid times. Fear, anger, anxiety, resentment… emotions guide and misguide politics. The more “informed” we are the less we know.

Students learn that the following number sets represent rational numbers: natural numbers, whole numbers, integers, fractions, terminating decimals, and repeating decimals. For example, -2, 7, 3/4, 0.0006, and 0.191919... are all rational numbers. However, a decimal that is both non-terminating and non-repeating is an irrational number.

Misoriented interphase boundary between h-BN and SiC grains
The micrograph shows misoriented interphase boundary between h-BN (precipitate) and SiC grains (within a silicon nitride particulate-reinforced silicon carbide composite). The occurrence of BN inclusions results from the introduction of colloidal BN into the hot isostatic pressing process. They are formed from B2O3 present as a thin surface film on the BN particles in the barrier layer. B2O3 will be molten during the pressing process and will diffuse rapidly into the powder compact and react wit
