Old Emus for Physics

Posted in Education, The Universe and Stuff with tags , on September 3, 2013 by telescoper

It is time to reveal just a part of  the series of innovations I have been introducing to the curriculum here in the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of Sussex, since I became head earlier this year.

In order to develop further the problem-solving skills of students in the Department of Physics & Astronomy, I have decided that  all modules OLD EMUS will henceforth be referred to by anagrams of their actual titles. For example, in the forthcoming Semester I will be teaching second-year students MONSTER DELICACY.

Among the other old emus to be taken by Year 2 students of SHY PICS are:

MANIAC MUNCH QUEST

UNFITTING COMIC SPICE

SPIN HISS SLICKLY

A TINSMITH’S DEPTH, SARCASTICALLY

ASTHMATIC MODE HALTED for SPICY SHITS

and for options there are

TRANSPLANTED ASS (compulsory for those into RACY SOPHISTS)

ATHEIST PSYCHIC LORE

This list does not include the compulsory A RICH SORT’S PLAYBOY.

I hope this clarifies the situation.

Out, Mad Colleague!

In order to develop further the problem-solving skills of students in the School of Physics & Astronomy at Cardiff University, it has been decided to list the entries in the Spring Semester module catalogue in the form of anagrams.

For example, here is the list for third year students doing basic courses in physics SHY PICS

PX3206      A CHEMIST’S TACTICAL SIN

PX3211       VASTLY DIMMED CAPACITANCE HASH

PX3226      MEDIC’S CROUTONS

PX3233      CRISPY HASSLE

PX3235      AN ANARCHY, SO MINDLESS NOTES

PX3237      ACCIDENTAL RAUNCHY SLIPPERS

while those taking courses involving ROMAN TOYS also have

PX3231       POSY ALCOHOLIC’S GYM

PX3212       SLITHERY SCALPS

Students doing  SCUM I also get to do

PX3214       SHUTS NOISY DENS

and DECIMAL students have

PX3234        A RUNT CALLED SODIUM

Students also have to do their JET CROP, of course…

Oh, and  I forgot that 3rd year students can also take

PX4215      PITY CHERISHES SAGGY HORN

I hope this clarifies the situation.
