As I’ve mentioned before, each semester the bloggers all get a freebie entry, an entry in which all we have to do is share with you our schedules and then we can feel accomplished.
I present to you, my weekly schedule for this semester!
As you can see, Mondays are pretty sweet, as are Wednesdays with that gap in the middle, but the rest is pretty full. Oh, and for those of you who don’t speak numbers . . .
2.004 = Dynamics and Controls II. In this class we enter the magical Laplace domain and learn about control systems, feedback loops, and attempt to drown ourselves in differential equations. This, at this point, is looking like my easiest class.
2.006 = Thermal Fluids II. The sequel to my favorite class ever, 2.005. 2.006, just like 2.005, has the potential to trounce me. I envision splattered spirits and crushed dreams coming up!
2.007 = Design and Manufacturing I. In this class everybody is issued a box of materials, taught some design basics and some machining, and has one semester to build a competitive robot for an end-of-the-semester competition.
2.00b = Toy Design. Last year I was a student in the class, this year I’m filming it. Check out the videos in the “Lectures” section of www.ToyProductDesign.com
21L.011 = The Film Experience. Taught by Henry Jenkins, this class compares movies with their older or newer counterparts, or sometimes just two movies related in some form or fashion. It has the potential to be an amazing class, with us going to see “Watchmen” when it comes out, and watching upwards of 20 movies. It also looks like it could be one of my most work intensive, so we’ll see how it goes!
So that’s all, the freebie entry is done, and now it’s time to go to class. Adios!
