Citations and Plagiarism Workshop

HSU Library
Come to this workshop to discover how to properly use citations in your assignments. As a college student, plagiarism is an important concept to keep in mind- it can result in bad grades or disciplinary action. But citations are also an important part of scholarship- a tradition of recognizing the work of others and collaborating on the development of your discipline. This workshop will also focus on the basic aspects of creating citations and references and will introduce you to invaluable reference resources. It is recommended that you complete the citation tutorial before attending this workshop: http://www2.humboldt.edu/libraryquiz/make-citations

Science on Tap! Chaos vs. Disorder: A Wednesday Night SmackDown

Blondie's Food and Drink
The concepts of chaos and disorder are often interchangeable when using every-day language. However, in physics they have very specific and distinct meanings. This talk will explore these two concepts and how they differ. This will be accomplished by first discussing the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which states that entropy, the amount of disorder, can never decrease in a closed system.

I’ll show how this law, and the idea of entropy, can be derived from statistical probabilities. In the second part of the talk I’ll focus on the concept of chaos, which arises in non-linear dynamical systems. Simply stated, chaos is the term used to describe the unpredictability of these systems. I’ll introduce a few non-linear systems, how they depend sensitively on their initial conditions and show how the behavior of these systems can transition from zones of stability to zones of chaos.

Finally, we’ll look at a simple chaotic pendulum as a case study for a system with very low amount of disorder, but which exhibits chaotic behavior.

Tyler Mitchell is an Astronomer and teaches Physics and Astronomy at Humboldt State University.

Come to this 2-hr workshop to learn how freely available web development tools can help you with these issues and more.

A basic knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript isn't required for this, but will help you get the most out of this workshop. If you'd like to brush up on the basics, visit this guide for some great resources: http://libguides.humboldt.edu/webdev-resources.
