Schwartz: Can you agree that PIP^(-1) is I? I is PIP^(-1)? I am PIP^(-1)? Stephen: pip install joke

Schwartz: A Linear Algebra exam is not the time to save the planet.

"use more paper if it would help me to read what you're writing"

//all-period half day during which students are to remotely view information about courses Schwartz: This is the Schwartz babysitting session. I have to make sure you don't die for 24 minutes, but I'm not allowed to teach you anything. //later, Caleb walks in late Schwartz: You're late! How dare you be late on this important day of class! I will mark you tardy! //later, Caleb talking to Stephen and writing equations on the board, whilst Schwartz left the classroom //Schwartz returns Schwartz: Maths? There's maths happening in my classroom? How could you?! Schwartz: You miscreants -- learning things today!

linalg (but no actual linalg happening, of course)

//the next class from 11149 //Schwartz talked about category theory and commutative diagrams for most of class Schwartz: That concludes our ridiculous tangent, part 3, or whatever we're up to.

//the next class from 11132 Schwartz: If you want to plug in 2 to a polynomial, you can do that. Schwartz: Just construct the polynomial ring, and mod it out by the ideal generated by x - 2! Michael: Will this be on the test?

it will not, but you should learn about it anyway because it's cool

//Schwartz teaching group theory and abstract algebra Schwartz: Ideally, I would have a plan for where to go from here Schwartz: but I'm just talking about things because they're cool, and we'll get to them whenever we get to them.

//about to comment on computational efficiency of things Schwartz: I should warn you that not only am I not a computer scientist, I am very much not a computer scientist. Schwartz: I took one computer science class -- for fun, my senior year of college -- where I used LisP and DrScheme. Schwartz: The TAs refused to grade my programs because they were so inefficient and obfuscated that they couldn't figure out how they worked without crying.

"not literally crying" ... "everyone here knows more computer science than me"

//chaotic schwartz anthology, september 21 //this was during a lesson using an applied-linear-algebra problem based on student suggestions "We're going to use this maths for some real-world applications. Anyone who's been in one of my classes before knows that there's a catch, because anything in my class won't work in real life." "How much fun is in cat food? 2. There are two fun in cat food." "How much hydrochloric acid is in cat food? 10." "And how much charcoal is in cat food? Negative three. When you eat cat food, it sucks three charcoal out of you." "I'm so glad I can give examples that are relevant to your everyday life. I want to make sure you know how much nutrition to get from your cat food." "Some of you might prefer flavoured solid rocket fuel, which has some added charcoal." "If I want to calculate how much fun you're eating, I need to know how much cat food you eat each day -- I don't know how much; that will, of course, vary for each of you ..." "We want to make sure that you get enough hydrochloric acid every day." "Disclaimer: please don't eat hydrochloric acid. Please don't eat anything that isn't food for human consumption."
