http://www.braingle.com/mind/iq/convert.php?year=3&satm=680&satv=750&grev=&greq=&calculate=Calculate+IQ When I convert what I scored on my SATs, my IQ becomes higher than when I was tested by psychologists. The psychology testing was done before I took the SATs and I was quite a bit younger. It was either in the high 120s or the low 130s. The SAT scores convert to a 145 IQ which an entire std. deviation higher. Which one should I trust?

Hey /sci/, what is considered the best, most well-rounded and prestigious education cycle in your country? The formation that basically states you as a golden student as soon as you mention it? State the country you come from in your post, of course. >Pic related And med studies, of course.

does pic related have any scientific backing or merit in any way whatsoever? not a troll post please don't ban i'm fucking curious. does the amount of oxygen that is pumped from your blood into your brain affect or is it affected by the size of your brain or how intelligent you are?

What if dragons existed during 4,000 B.C. in Egypt?

>be me, present-day >be 4chen lurker from 2004~2010, poster from 2012~now >be watchen ancient aliens >always wonderan "y4 they no make connections to dinosaurs?" >always transhumanism stuffs liek "mah bigfoots" "mah neanderthawls" "mah roswell aliums" but never like... "mah dragons" or "my pterodactyl flight business" or "mah broncheosaurus crane" So what if dragons existed, dragons did breathe fire, and dragons were property of a ruler? So egypt would have a dragon, and then the dragon's ability to spit fire would have been a really crude way of welding or treating stone so as to fasten stone together at a seam? and then like the dragon woulda been kept in that big pyramid of giza, as kind of like a fucked up labyrinth brutal-ass way of execution or like... demonstration of military power or something? And then like if the dragon died that meant the pharaoh was losin his man mojo and was gunna get insurrected upon or somethin i dunno BUT WHAT IF?

When I do math or programming and seriously need to concentrate I can cope with music even when it's loud but when I here people talking I get distracted immediately. Does this have anything to do with how the left and right brain hemispheres work, if so would someone care to explain?

Picking the right Chemistry textbook which suits my needs

0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Alright /sci/, I have a core understanding of Chemistry from my earlier years in high school and now that I will be entering my senior years next year I’m looking for a Chemistry textbook (which comes published in a PDF format so I can read it on my tablet) that is excruciatingly scrupulous and thorough in its content to the point where memorizing the factual details verbatim would enable me to be incredibly knowledgeable on the science and the history surrounding it, not just something which focuses on condescend information on the core principles. Anything from high school, to college, or even to a University level would be much appreciated as I plan on following a career in science later in my life and knowing as much as I can will only be beneficial to me, irrespective of whether my school’s curriculum would utilize my knowledge learnt, I’d simply be content having a greater understanding of the world around me. For reference: The current book I’ve picked up for Biology that I will be studying is Campbell Biology 9th Edition in PDF format at 1497 pages and it’s everything I could have asked for from a biology textbook. Many thanks for any suggestions you may have for me.

VetMed courses in another country

Hey /sci/ I'm hoping to apply to University of Queensland's VetMed campus from Canada. Does anyone here have any advice about taking university in other countries. Also yes, I plan on staying in Australia. I'll try and keep the politics short but from what I've seen growing up here we're trying a bit to hard to be like certain vocal percentages of the North American population. >tl;dr Anyone here have advice about emigrating while taking university courses?

Has anyone ever gone through a full course by watching online youtube lectures like UCBerkeley/Harvard online/etc? Share your thoughts and experience if so. I've finished my university degree, love learning, but also love the money in industry.

How would you introduce cellular respiration to 10th graders without going into the details of glycolysis, citric acid cycle, and electron transport chain? Need to fill an hour and a half with this... thinking about doing something with going over food as an energy source, reviewing ATP, and going over anaerobic/aerobic respiration, but actual activities for respiration are scant, since I can't have them do any lab things.

Hey /sci/, a quick question. Let's say we're supposed to fill 4 empty spaces. You have a total of 10 choices with each choice being assigned a letter ranging from A-G. Supposedly the choice layout is something like this 0 = A 1 = A 2 = B 3 = C 4 = C 5 = D 6 = E 7 = F 8 = F 9 = G What would be the probability of getting each letter? Additionally if they were arranged like this ABCDEFGABC (same number order like before) Would the probability change? I'm more inclined to say that the probability doesn't change but I just want to make sure.

Does anyone happen to have a good introduction to dimensional analysis for an applied math course in mathematical modelling?

hi. I'm trying to plot a graph from external data. What I've done so far is this: plot([M[ ..,[1,2]]],labels=[time, 'counts'],legend=[counts]); What I need is to make the y axis in logarithmic scale. Could anyone help me? thanks
