Anyone find any that I've missed here?
Today I ran across the site "WikiWand" which I would describe as "a pretty-printer for Wikipedia," which is to say, it serves up wikipedia articles in an eyeball-friendly way with some reader conveniences. I kind of like it, I think - even nicer-looking than Firefox's Reader view which I like a lot. Something feels sketchy about it, though, and I'm not sure why.
Cantor's diagonal argument for non-denumerability boils down to "Every function from the natural numbers to the reals fails to be surjective."
Is there an equally lovely but underappreciated argument that does "Every function from the real numbers to the natural numbers fails to be injective?" If not, why is that direction more difficult?
Which is all fine, I'm just saying I got the Babel fish out of the vending machine with less hassle.
The process of recording a meeting in Google Meet is now:
1. Pop up menu, hit "start recording"
2. That pops up a side panel with a cool graphic and a "start recording" button.
3. Hit THAT "start recording" button then you get a dialog box which has a "start recording" button (and a reminder to check that everybody's OK with recording)
4. Hit "start recording" in the dialog box. Recording starts. Wow!
5. The side panel with the cool graphic remains in place.
I'll be teaching multivariable calc in the fall, which I haven't done for a few years. I taught it out of Stewart quite a few times. The faculty here in recent years have taught out of Marsden and Tromba but I don't think that's a good fit (especially since our department doesn't have linear algebra as a prereq for multivar). I don't love the cost of Stewart, either, though. Anybody got any textbook recommendations?
