Yep, definitely had the same professor for differential equations. Worst grade in my college career (until that law school ethics class, that is...).

Thanks for posting. It's cool to watch, particularly the repetition of order and apparent disorder. I'm glad I don't have to figure out the math!

I had four courses in physics, three classical and one modern and not one of the professors was born in the US. Dr. Wong, Dr. Georjevic, Dr. Kumar, and Dr. Hertzel. I think UCLA in the 70s was attempting to assemble a United Nations faculty.

I think it would have benefited me to have taken Mandarin, Croatian, Pakistani and German before taking the physics course.

"... and so you see.."
"... it is obvious..."
"... and so on and so on.."
"... it follows..."
"... I will leave it to the student to prove this.."
"... I will skip the trivial math.."
"... you should prove to yourself.."
