|In a world full of wonders mankind has managed to invent boredom|
The mass of an object never seems to change: a spinning top has the same weight as a still one. So a “law” was invented: mass is constant, independent of speed. That “law” is now found to be incorrect. Mass is found to increase with velocity.
Now, what should we teach first? Should we teach the correct but unfamiliar law with its strange and difficult conceptual ideas? Or should we first teach the simple “constant-mass” law, which is only approximate, but does not involve such difficult ideas?
This point arises again and again in teaching physics. At different times we shall have to resolve it in different ways.
- —Richard Feynman, The Feynman Lectures on Physics
As Richard Feynman pointed out we can either strive to impart a strictly accurate but hideously complicated mathematical understanding of physics or we can try to impart an intuitive understanding of physics. It is impossible to do both. We will try to do the latter. Students that prefer the other approach should look elsewhere.

Four value Bayesian logic
Classical logic is a two-valued logic meaning that any proposition is either true or false. But Bayesian logic works differently.
