I have a son who’s currently a third year physics undergrad and another son who’s in first year philosophy. As you can imagine, I may occasionally pass along a link or two to them pointing to stuff on the web I think they might find particularly interesting or useful. Thinking on that fact, I surmised that perhaps other undergrad students might find those links interesting or useful as well. Hence, this series of posts here on the blog.

Since I’m a science librarian, the items I’ve chosen are mostly geared towards science undergrads (hence, the title of the series), but I hope many of them will be of broader interest.

The previous posts in this series are: 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1.

Please feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments.

    Re: mathematical notation… Certainly in my abstract algebra course there were very few equations and the proofs were written out in paragraph form…the most common symbols were probably Ɐ,∈ and ∃. Much more scary than a page of equations.
