know thy audiences

February 28, 2008

关于人生的信条是“认识你自己”,关于科普的信条莫过于“认识你的观众”。

刚才结束跟一个来这里进修的中学数学教师聊天,我更加感慨这一点。我们对数学的理解差别如此之大,恐怕我导师对我也是一般感叹来着──他随手扔给我一个想法,就足够我做上好多天。

我够幸运,做的是组合数学。这不光造成我不必看很多书(象数论或者几何那样),不必做很多计算(好比任何的实用数学),而且总是可以期待,把自己脑子里的数学,给别的人解释出来。。。一直嚷嚷的写科普,终于打算下决心真正开始了!

A great instructional book: Gödel, Escher, Bach, also on wikipedia.

  1. 等着看你的科普。。。其实,数学的东西写出来会很好看的。还有,你的那篇科幻小说呢?:)


  2. Looking forward to ….Good good start


  3. my macbook is brought for checking over this weekend.. dont have any Chinese for a while. I'll try to write on paper if some inspiration hits me 🙂 on the other hand, what happens more often is that I had a thought and then forget about it totally… . ahah shame on me…
