Manu Prakash won The Science Play and Research Kit Competition (SPARK) to develop the 21st century chemistry set. His version, based on a toy music box, is small, robust, programmable and costs $5. It can inspire young scientists and also address developing world problems like water quality and health.

Stanford University Stanford University (officially Leland Stanford Junior University) is a private research university in Stanford, California, and one of the world's most prestigious institutions,[8][9][10][11] with the top position in numerous surveys and measures in the United States.[12][13][14][15][16][17][18] Stanford was founded in 1885 by Leland Stanford, former governor of and U.S. senator from California and leading railroad tycoon, and his wife, Jane Lathrop Stanford, in memory of their only child, Leland Stanford, Jr., who had died of typhoid fever at age 15 the previous year.

Humanities Education Serves as a Toolbox for Life By Dave Millar The Humanities at Stanford Steve Castillo Philosophers John Perry and Kenneth Taylor will bring their Continuing Studies course on 'The Art of Living' to their 'Philosophy Talk' radio show. The definition of a well-lived life may vary from person to person. One may find particular fulfillment through faith and duty, while another may opt for a life of reason and knowledge. But whatever the path, our lives are in some sense a product of the choices we make.

Brains in Silicon Welcome to Brains in Silicon. Learn about the lab, get to know the brains that work here, and find out about new projects that you could join. We have crafted two complementary objectives: To use existing knowledge of brain function in designing an affordable supercomputer—one that can itself serve as a tool to investigate brain function—feeding back and contributing to a fundamental, biological understanding of how the brain works. Graphs - R Cookbook My book about data visualization in R is available! The book covers many of the same topics as the Graphs and Data Manipulation sections of this website, but it goes into more depth and covers a broader range of techniques. You can preview it at Google Books. Purchase it from Amazon, or direct from O'Reilly. There are many ways of making graphs in R, each with its advantages and disadvantages.

Russell's Introduction to Mathematical Philosophy In early 2009, I began a project to make Russell's Introduction to Mathematical Philosophy available free online. I began with a rather low quality OCRed scan of the 1920 Allen & Unwin printing, which I cleaned up by re-adding formatting, correcting mistakes, inserting mathematical symbols, and so on. Several members of the Russell-l mailing list helped as well. Kenneth Blackwell, of the Bertrand Russell Archives/Research Center, McMaster University, contributed to the project in a major way by not only error-checking the bulk of the edition but also comparing it against Russell’s handwritten manuscript, which turned up a number of errors in all previously published editions. New corrections to the text (at least those of any significance) are marked in green in most of the editions below (except the .mobi version, which does not support color).

How to Develop a Mindset for Math Math uses made-up rules to create models and derive relationships. When learning, I ask: What relationship does this model represent?
