Yesterday’s convolutions lecture that was streamed live has over 40k views by now. I am so glad this class took off. To me, it is a unique blend of Grant’s teaching style with Alan and David’s computational thinking. I have no doubt the class itself is evolving. https://mitmath.github.io/18S191/Fall20/lecture2/
The class discord channel has over 600 students.
While many people have told me that they wished they had materials of this quality as they were learning scientific computing, others have told me that the Pluto experience is the highlight for them!
I have been following also. Great course and thankyou to the lecturers. Philip included.
The use of Pluto is quite simply amazing. For a project which is 7 months old this is a great achievement @fonsp
Whoa…David Sanders, Alan Edelman, Grant Sanderson, and James Schloss all teaching a course together. If I were trying to put together an intellectual version of the Harlem Globe Trotters, these folks would definitely be on the list. As it stands, it’s like the Julia version of The Fantastic Four. Get Chris Rackauckas involved and you will have the intellectual equivalent to Marvel’s The Avengers.
Thanks for putting this together - I will thoroughly enjoy the material
The use of Pluto in the Convolutions lecture is stunning.
We are working with a cat image. Grant Sanderson changes to a zebra image at the top of the workbook and then due to the reactive nature of Pluto everything changes.
It’s like Harry Potter waving a magic wand.
