here is how you get started

  1. Is this a course for you? View the course introduction video to find out.
  2. Check out the syllabus
  3. Sign up here:
    use your email (no need for Georgia Tech email address) together with access code phys7224
    And do sign up, even if you do not intend to do the homeworks - following the chatter on the course forum you might inadvertently learn something that your professor does not know.
  4. Begin reading the ChaosBook chapters and viewing the lecture videos for week 1.
    Here is the overview of chapters we will study in this course
  5. If interested (not essential, but might be fun),check out the Tue Thu 2:00 - 3:15pm EST recordings of live classes here.
  6. Some of the homework problems will require you to complete a Python script and run it to produce a specific result. You need to install Python, or the class virtual machine, where all required software is preinstalled. Review software requirements and Python resources links for instructions
  7. You will have a homework assignment each week.
  8. Post your questions, comments, advice, etc. in the week's discussion forum
  9. Good luck and enjoy your course!
