Friday, Feb. 3 | 3 p.m. | Hagen 325 Speaker: Dr. Matthew Craig The physics underlying climate change has been well understood for over 100 years. Measurements taken over that period clearly demonstrate that the temperature of the Earth is increasing and that the increase is largely driven by human-produced carbon dioxide. While data from the most recent IPCC report […]
The Strong Endowment, established by the late Judy Strong, former Associate Vice President, Dean, and Chemistry Department chair and professor, is supporting nine research projects, involving over 20 Minnesota State University Moorhead students in three departments this summer.
While physics makes heavy use of mathematics compared to other disciplines, most of what a physicist does is closer to advanced arithmetic than pure mathematics. We frequently abuse mathematical concepts and teach our students to do the same in the interest of developing their physical intuition. Ironically, the most useful parts of mathematics are often the ones that students perceive […]
