*I forgot what message to post! -Richard

*It took me 30 minutes to figure out how to edit this page. I am not very good at this yet. Why isn't there an edit link right next to it? How would I go about adding a contents box to the top of my Course Page? - [[User:Roberto Sebastian Rosales|Roberto Sebastian Rosales]]

** [[User:Steven J. Koch|Steve Koch]] 15:29, 1 September 2010 (EDT): If you add a few headings, using equals signs (e.g., <nowiki>==heading==</nowiki>), after a few, the contents will automatically appear.  To turn off the table of contents, add the text <nowiki>__NOTOC</nowiki> to the top of the page.  Sorry it took half an hour, but you'll get the hang of it!

[[User:Steven J. Koch|Steve Koch]] says: It's nearing the end of the first week of Fall 08 classes, and I hope you're all enjoying things so far.  I enjoyed meeting you this week and I'm excited about working and learning with you this semester. As I mentioned during lecture and lab this week, there is an assignment due before Monday September 8.  See this page for the assignment:

[[User:Steven J. Koch|Steve Koch]] says: Welcome to Junior Lab, it was great meeting you on Monday! As I mentioned during lecture, there is an assignment due before Monday August 30.  The purpose of the assignment is to get you accustomed to the wiki so you can focus on the labs the remaining weeks.  See this page for the assignment:

Also as a reminder, we will not have class on Monday or Wednesday because of Labor Day.  The TA, Aram, and I will be in lab on Wednesday from 2-5, and you are welcome to come by for help with wiki editing, or to start playing around with the oscilloscope lab.  Additionally, you can contact me to setup another time to meet during the week if you'd like help with the wiki editing or to discuss anything.

Katie (the TA) and I will be in lab again on Wednesday and even if you're in the Monday section, please feel free to come by lab on Wednesday this week if you want extra wiki help.  Additionally, you can contact me to setup another time to meet during the week if you'd like help with the wiki editing or to discuss anything.

*[[User:Manuel Franco Jr.|Manuel]] 12:38 am, 15 Nov 2008 (EDT): Hey yeah, this is a pretty cool site!  There are some pretty good summer research opportunities.  How competitive are they?

:[[User:Steven J. Koch|Steve Koch]] 13:58, 15 November 2008 (EST): They are somewhat competitive, but I think you would have a good shot.  It would be important to find one where you'd enjoy spending the summer.  You can email the adminstrators of programs you are interested in to ask for more info.  I'm happy to answer more questions too!  Summer research can be a lot of fun and is a great way to get experience, build your resume, and figure out whether you'd enjoy a research career.

Welcome to Junior Lab!

Steve Koch says: Welcome to Junior Lab, it was great meeting you on Monday! As I mentioned during lecture, there is an assignment due before Monday August 30. The purpose of the assignment is to get you accustomed to the wiki so you can focus on the labs the remaining weeks. See this page for the assignment:

Physics307L:Assignments/Wiki assignment 1

Katie (the TA) and I will be in lab again on Wednesday and even if you're in the Monday section, please feel free to come by lab on Wednesday this week if you want extra wiki help. Additionally, you can contact me to setup another time to meet during the week if you'd like help with the wiki editing or to discuss anything.

Also as a reminder, we will not have class during the Labor Day week.

In addition to the above wiki assignment, you should click around on the other parts of the wiki. It would be good if you take a look at the course goals. If you have opinions about the goals, post a message about it on the talk page! Or on this "interactions" page.

Best wishes for a great semester and welcome!
