How The Sun Works

In this paper I want to describe how the sun works. I will also comment about its properties and how it affects us here on Earth with its radiation. Our Sun is a star and is the closest one to us by far. That gives us the opportunity to study it more closely than any other star.

Astronomy For Beginners: Exoplanets

Exoplanets are planets that are beyond our solar system. They have been known for a hundred years or more. They are really hard to study directly. We can still learn a lot from them though. In fact, that is why we study them. Learning about exoplanets will help us learn about the formation of our own Earth and corresponding solar system. Astronomers monitor young planets to see what Earth might have been like in its early stages. In this article I want to talk about what is known about exoplanets and how they are formed. This will obviously lead into solar system formation which is pretty interesting stuff.

Astronomy For Beginners: Space Debris

Introduction

There is a lot of space debris in our galaxy. It can be large or small. Space debris can be Asteroids, Comets, Meteors, or even dust. In this article I talk about all of these objects and their characteristics. I also discuss topics such as Asteroids getting close to Earth and the once-planet Pluto.

One-Sided Limits Of Calculus

In a continuance of this series today, I wanted to talk about the one-sided limits of calculus. Limits and where they lead are one of the fundamental concepts of calculus. Since limits show what happens near any particular point on a graph we need to take a look at them. Read on with me and I will explain their behavior so you can easily solve them.

Planets Of Our Solar System

The planets of our solar system are as varied as is life on on our planet. We know that because Astronomers are constantly learning about our solar system. There is still so much to learn and it will be fun to try and keep up. This is an introduction to the planets of our solar system and if you have a burning desire to learn about space and everything inside it then keep reading and we can begin our journey.

Astronomy for Beginners: The Moon

The Moon has been up there in the sky looking back at us for as long as there has been a sky. Where did it come from? Why do we see only one side continually? The Moon is mysterious and I think we can all agree on that. There are many unanswered questions and the fact remains that many of them we just don't know. In this article I will try to answer some of these more common questions in ways that make sense.

Beginning Calculus Problems With Limits

Beginning calculus problems with limits of a function are a common teaching technique for young students that are just starting their journey in Calculus. Limits problems will help you understand how they work and what is going on when you encounter a function. Repetition is key here to get your brain used to thinking about what a function or a graph means. I include several examples below in order for you to practice and grasp the concepts.

Astronomy For Beginners: The Solar System

The solar system is very interesting. There are countless objects wandering around out there. We have learned much from even the smallest things like dust in space. The Solar System is a very complicated and busy place. To learn we measure everything we can and then compare constantly. That is the fun of it to me. I love looking at data and seeing how objects are different and all the ways in which they are the same.

Astronomy For Beginners: How Telescopes Are Used

How telescopes are used in modern Astronomy is changing every decade. We used to only use them to see objects with normal light. Now we can leverage our technology gains to see different wavelengths of light in the universe. This has opened up our studies with a lot more data than we previously had. This article talks about the different fields and categories of astronomy and what they mean.

Astronomy For Beginners: Guide to the Universe

When I was a kid growing up in Kentucky I always loved going out at night and seeing the sky. My home was very unpopulated and so had very little light pollution. The nearest town of 3 thousand people was about 15 miles away. So it was an incredible place to dream about what may lie among the stars. That was the start of my love for science, astronomy, and physics.

I have carried this with me my whole life and always wanting to learn more because I loved it. I have always wanted to write about it as a result. This is a short guide to the universe and includes the beginning topics. From here most of the advanced concepts come from these ideas and are developed more fully.

Beginning Calculus: Rate of Change

Rate of change in calculus is a series I have been wanting to do for a while. If you are a student and just starting then your in the right place. This is the very beginning of calculus and where you want to start your learning. Since there are so many topics in school that require some calculus, I felt it was important to get some basics up here for you.

Beginning Latex : Tutorial For Beginners

So you are writing a paper and you need to display formulas or math in it. Then this quick beginning Latex tutorial is for you. Your paper needs to be accurate and look good. You then go to your favorite word processor to type things out. It is then you discover, maybe for the first time, that regular text editors can not do math very well. You may be trying to display physics equations, biology genes, or chemical formulas.

Whichever it is, you realize you have to be super creative to even approach the accuracy that you want. At this point you will probably start asking around or researching the best way to do this. Well let me tell you folks, there is a better way.  This is when most people find out about the wonderful Latex typesetting environment. Read on and I will explain as simply as I can about Latex.
