Brandbrief von Mathematikern bzgl. zunehmend mangelnder Mathe-Kenntnisse und Fertigkeiten von StudienanfängerInnen und die Reaktionen der Kompetenzorientierer.

Meine Meinung: Mathematik muss wieder als universelles Werkzeug betrachtet und nicht hauptsächlich an irgendwelchen obskuren Beispielen gelehrt werden! Die #Kompetenzorientierung hemmt die vernetzte Wahrnehmung von miteinander in Beziehung stehenden Lehrinhalten. Die klassische Fähigkeit zur Transferleistung - Lebenselixier der Mathematik - wird dadurch mehr und mehr abgebaut.

#‎InTheory‬

Why bother with theoretical physics?

Let’s open some doors of the Theory corridor at CERN and learn more about what it takes to make someone a theoretical physicist: http://cern.ch/go/fN8n

This is kind of disturbing.

"So even if you make a black hole, and even if the laws of physics that we know are wrong and it lives forever, it is still harmless. No matter how many of the laws of physics you throw out, revise or tweak, the Earth will still be okay."

Every time we go to higher-and-higher energies with our particle accelerators, we increase the chances of finding new particles, new knowledge, and new fundamental physics. While there are also potential risks, the most commonly trotted-out one is that the LHC — set to run at 13 TeV, up from 7 TeV previously — will create an Earth-destroying black hole that will devour the planet in short order. Here's the physics of why that's impossible.

A nice timeline of all the major milestones in the history of the LHC. Found on the CERN web page.

Want your very own miniature LHC?

Then VOTE NOW for ‪#‎LHCLego‬: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/94885

A PhD student working on the ATLAS experiment at CERN has created a replica of the Large Hadron Collider using Lego building blocks. It now needs 10,000 votes on the Lego Ideas website to qualify for the Lego Review, which decides if projects become new Lego products, read more: http://cern.ch/go/b7XZ

The image shows a computer simulation of the miniature Lego LHC, complete with four detectors (+ALICE Experiment +ATLAS Experiment +CMS Experiment and +LHCb Experiment) connected with blue dipole magnets. Image credit: Nathan Readioff. You can build your own miniature LHC now! Instruction manuals and part lists are available on the “Build your own particle detector" website: http://build-your-own-particle-detector.org/models/lhc-micro-models
