In the fine tradition of Best Textbook, Best Software and Best Visualization:
For our purposes a curriculum is one or more discrete resources (website, book, article, tutorial, whatevs) plus one or more goal-states, such as acquiring or practicing a new skill, learning about a subject, or similar. Type signature is:
curriculum is (List<resource>, List<goal-state>)
- One nomination per comment
- Please include an explanation of why you nominated it
- If you can compare your nomination to other curricula, that's excellent but not required
(NB: "comparing to other curricula" could be comparison of resources OR goal-states OR both; I think a certain amount of comparison between goal-states could be really interesting, but my hope is that this thread has significant attention devoted to discussing resources.)
This was motivated by looking at one of Gwern's self-experimentation posts and realizing that I wanted to be able to do that kind of [self-]experimental design + data analysis + visualization. This is my attempt to manifest that curriculum [plus many others] into being.
Are there great physics books that use a Programmed Learning approach? I have a couple of math books like that, and it's a very nice way to learn.
