Week 1 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for submitting your assignment on time.
  • There are a few of things that you need to fix on your individual user page and shared journal page. Please make these changes by next week's journal deadline (midnight, February 8) to earn back the points you missed on this assignment.
    1. You need to put the complete street address for your box at LMU.
    2. For your external link, use a label as part of the syntax. For example, use NY Times Health page instead of just
    3. For the link to your file, again, use a label. For example, use January Aquatics Pool Schedule instead of just Media: January_Aquatics_Pool_Schedule.pdf.
    4. Make sure that you use the summary field to record what you changed every time you make a change.
    5. You have created your template, but you actually need to invoke it on your user page so that the stuff that is in there actually shows up on your page. You do this by using the syntax {{Ashley Rhoades}} at the place where you want it to appear.
    6. On the Week 1 shared journal page, On the Week 1 shared journal page, make a link back to your user page at the top of the section where you answered the questions.
  • Please feel free to delete the welcome message from OpenWetWare below.

Ashley, I answered your question on my user talk page. Kam D. Dahlquist 19:50, 24 January 2013 (EST)

You asked: "Dr. Fitzpatrick:

Do you know any funny math jokes?

Ashley Rhoades 01:28, 22 January 2013 (EST)"

My answer: Funny? not many. lotsa "groaners." I always liked farside cartoons, and now I read xkcd pretty regularly. Let's see. here's a couple.

A pair of engineers are riding around in a hot air balloon, and they get lost. Searching for help, they see a crowd in a nearby field, and they maneuver close enough to talk. They yell down "Hey, where are we?"

A long conversation ensues amongst the group, and after quite a time, one of the ground group yells up "You're in a hot air balloon."

One engineer says to the other "just our luck. mathematicians." The other says "how do you know," and the first responds, "three reasons.

1. They took forever to answer. 2. The answer was perfectly accurate. 3. The answer was absolutely useless."

Another has a group of engineers and a group of mathematicians sitting near each other on a train trip. The engineers note that the mathematicians only have one ticket among the group members, and they ask about it. The mathematicians say "we have worked hard to optimize our cost, and we have a traveling algorithm that only requires one ticket. You'll see."

At some point in the trip, the conductor calls "Tickets!" from up the car. The mathematicians run together to the bathroom and enter together. When the conductor knocks on the bathroom door, the mathematicians slide the ticket under it. The engineers, impressed, take note of this occurrence.

On the trip back, the two groups are again sitting together, the engineers proudly displaying their one ticket. The mathematicians remark that they have improved their algorithm, needing no ticket now. Hmm... so, the conductor calls for "Tickets!" and the engineers scramble to the loo. Soon as the door closes, the mathematicians follow, one of which knocks on the door and says "Ticket!"

Hello, Ashley Rhoades! This is a welcome message from OpenWetWare. By the way, we've announced you on the home page! You can leave messages to any OWW member by editing their User_talk pages like this one. And don't forget to personalize your User Page so that we can get to know you better! We've included some tips below to get you started.

Basic Wiki Instructions

  • Don't be afraid to edit! As with all pages on the wiki, all versions are saved so its easy to undo. If you have any questions feel free to send us an email.
  1. Start off by clicking the 'edit' button to the right of this section, or at the top of the page.
  2. Now you should see the text of this section as text within an editor box. There are several buttons in the editor box, but don't worry about those for now. Just type something in the box, scroll down to the bottom, and hit the 'Preview' button.
  3. You should see the web-page and text box views, but now with your edits! Don't forget to save your changes by clicking 'Save Page'!
  4. Editing pages is as easy as that. There are of course many ways to format your text. The easiest way to learn is to find an OWW page with the formatting you like, click on the edit button again, and see for yourself how it was created in the text box. Here's an extensive list of formating examples. Or look at this OpenWetWare introductory tutorial.
  5. When you are done, remove these instructions by clicking the edit button for this section again, erase everything you see in the text box and click 'Save Page'. (And remember you can always retrieve these by clicking on the 'history' tab at the top of this page.)

Note that these instructions apply to any page on OWW. Feel free to contribute to OWW by editing pages to add content, update them, or even correct mistakes. OWW relies on an active community to manage our growing resource of open access information, and we need your help!

Personal/Lab Info

We have gone ahead and filled in some information you provided us in your membership application on your User Page. Please take a moment to embellish this and tell the community a little more about you. Put links to your lab pages, your projects and your interests. If you run out of ideas, take a look at some of the other User pages. For example, check out User:Julius_B._Lucks, User:Jason_R._Kelly and User:Reshma_P._Shetty.

You'll also notice that we have put an 'image' placeholder at the top of your User Page. We encourage you to upload an image of yourself to give OWW a more personal feel. To upload an image, click on the Upload file link on the left-hand side (toolbar). Choose a file from your computer, and remember the file name. After you have uploaded the image, you should see it loaded on its own page. Go back to your User Page, click on edit, and replace 'OWWEmblem.png' with the name of your file that you have uploaded in the second line of this page.

Week 2 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for submitting your assignment on time.
  • You did a nice job of presenting and discussing your results.
  • In future discussions, please make sure you list all the parameter values and initial conditions of your simulations.
  • What kinds of things would you want to know about the yeast to improve the model?
