Dashing through the snow, in a beat-up Chevrolet...
I saw this yard ornament while driving to Grand Valley to help Belladonna study for her Physics final.
I think we had a minor breakthrough when I suggested that she think of circuits problems as being like Sudoku puzzles. There is not a single formula. Rather it is solving what is solvable and then using those answers as clues.
Belladonna is a whiz at Sudoku.
I was concerned about the number of equations she was squeezing onto the "cheat sheet" the instructor was allowing. I think she heard me when I suggested that she take a pen with a different color ink and highlight the five or ten she KNEW she was going to need.
We got in two, 90 minute sessions before I needed to head home.
