3.7 Podcast 8 Preview – What’s that word I’m looking for?January 14, 2010
Another departure from the “normal science podcast.” This week we explore the idea of how quilting, scientific, and mathematic glossaries, terminology, and notations can trip you up from trying something new.
Before I learned the word “stoichiometry” I was terrified until I understood that the concept was much easier to deal with than the word itself. I hear that quilting has some words and terms like this as well – like “trapunto“.
By the podcast I will come up with some strategies to deal with intimidating vocabulary. Any advice to share from english-literary people would be nice (yes I want to use both sides of my brain here).
