How do I learn science? I'm done with high school and taking a gap year, and haven't actually paid much attention in school. I'd guess I have to start with maths, which I don't really remember that well, and later I want to do physics and chemistry. How long would it take? Any advice? (fuck /adv, /sci is where it's at)
>>7668988 You know how many of these threads we get in a week? As in, literal carbon copies ("Oh I didn't really pay attention in high school, but now I'm changed person! How do I STEM??? Btw I only know high school algebra.").
Just accept that you'll always be low IQ and go to trade school or something.
>>7668988 Take college classes. Like >>7668999 said, time off WILL make you retarded. Don't start with all maths, math is a huge subject. Once you have a passing knowledge of calculus, you can pretty much start any science you want. Sign up for gen chem, calculus, and a writing class at community college. If you take physics, only calc based will be worth a damn.The bar will be laughably low, your grades won't transfer as long as you pass (assuming the college is... Comment too long.

It is said the real number system has only one infintisimal, the number zero. This is, of course, is a heap of rubbish. Negative numbers are smaller than zero thus the real number system actually has an infinite amount of nonZero infinatesmals. This is ir-refutable.
I'll preemptively throw out there that the common scientific understanding is that it is the net result of the balance between the sympathetic/parasympathetic nervous system, the electro-chemical signals fired off by the responses to the environment (even in cases where all stimulus is removed; sensory deprivation, induced coma like states, acute/chronic altered and/or diminished mental status), and the conception of the "self" as self-realization occurs and is processed by the individual.
The commonly shared theological understanding is that "consciousness"... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm in university; it's my first year. I'm taking Calculus 1, Intro to Physics, and Organismal Biology, as well as a few Arts courses. Next semester, I'm taking General Chemistry, Calculus 2, and the rest of my arts courses. I'm going towards my Bachelor's of Arts and Science. What does my future look like (i.e. what can I expect from the harder Calculus courses and what can I actually do with this degree?).
Adult influenza vaccine injury claims are now the leading claim submitted to the federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program so it is important to understand risks associated with influenza vaccines. Below are current links for the influenza vaccine manufacturer's package inserts that have been licensed for use in the U.S. NVIC encourages consumers read this information carefully prior to receiving a vaccine. These links will lead you to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration's website, which makes vaccine package inserts and licensing information from available to... Comment too long.

So i got gifted one of these badboys (was still in original packaging with book)
I'd really like to learn more about math, as silly as it seems would pairing this up with kerbal space program be a great way to learn physics and shit?
This has some form of ti-basic, i figure i can eventually learn how to properly launch a shuttle, and write a program to help me with that. (i do development for a living i'm not scared of learning basic)
I just feel when it comes to math i'm a bit retarded, and wouldn't know where to start.

>>7668565 I have anatomy exam in 2 days. With 4 books to study from. It takes me at least 1 day to revise 1 book so its been 3 days since I studied book 1. As everything is to be remembered and not concept based, its easier to forget. And I feel like I dont remember the stuff I studied first.
>Is the field changing in a particularly meaningful way? As the performance of things increase, people get lazy and forget to optimize/clean up as much, so code over the years will get really bad and turn to be more hoggier of resources over the years.
>Will programming skills be valuable to have in the job market of the years to come? If you're a good at it, as in the ability to think on how to sucessfully do something well, neat, tidy, understandably and effectively, you will be no doubt in the top... Comment too long.

Business "programming" in the future will be similar to making a PowerPoint presentation. It's already pretty much this in a lot of situations. The business will have some software package, say for web forms, and will hire a "programmer" to work with it. That "programmer" will spend his days selecting widgets off a menu and setting their properties.
There will always be some need for lower-level programming, but the majority of people in business data departments won't really have any programming skill.
I feel like with the transition in electronics towards smaller and smaller and the introduction of quantum computing I feel like we'll need people who understand basics of electronics and can code close to the hardware. The more lights and shit are moved to the internet the more pressure is on embedding systems.
What are the asbestos/lead piping versions of this generation? As in, what (in the future tense), retrospectively very common chemicals or materials that are being used everywhere right now will end up being understood to have been terrible for human health? I'm assuming certain plastics and GMO's will become this, but I'm sure there is more
>>7668469 There are several fire retardants (for plastic and paint additives) which materials engineers are intentionally using that we know kills any anyone in the immediate vicinity very quickly once vaporized (happens immediately upon heating even before combustion) and on which the effects of long term exposure to minute concentrations have not been extensively studied.

I had a lecture from a member of the UK Committee on Safety of Medicines. If ethanol was discovered today, the legal limit would be minuscule, and the yearly dose within safety guidelines would be along the lines of one glass
Sine about 1950 problems have compounded each other to the point where the public K12 system is almost unsalavgable.
First, integration needed to occur (inb4 /pol/ shows up). The shock of it has never been resolved. Then schools stopped getting enough money to operate. Then teachers unions went full strike mode because they don't want their pay cut or any sort of accountability introduced on their end. What we have now is a huge fucking mess.
