I use equations quite a bit. What I have been doing is writing the equations in LaTeX and then taking a screen capture of the output. I think this makes nice looking equations, but it sure takes a while. Here I am testing [LaTeX for WordPress plugin](http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/latex/). The following *should* be some equations:

$$\vec{F}_\text{net}=\frac{d\vec{p}}{dt}$$

$$a^2+b^2=c^2$$

End of test. This was only a test. Had this been a real post, it *might* have had something useful.

**update** not sure if I like the way the equations look.

The other day I found myself faced with six equations that needed to be solved algebraically. Just so you know, I am a big fan of paper for most of these cases - but this was out of control. I was making silly mistakes and causing all sorts of problems. What to do? My first though was to use…

One of the labs we do in the introductory E&M class I'm teaching this term involves investigating charged particles with sticky tape. If you haven't seen it before, "invisible" tape picks up an electric charge when it's peeled off a surface quickly, and with a little care, you can create both…

I was going to title this post "Blog-a-lama-ding-dong" but I read somewhere that the title should be very descriptive (for better search optimization). So, my brother decided to start a blog. He was looking for some direction. I am by no means an expert blogger, but I do have some ideas about…
