Maths 101...philosophy 101...scams 101...

I propose, as a prelude to these 101s, a 101 101 to teach people which 101s are available.

       //Is there a Dalmatians 101 ?//   


       Since we are on the subject of amusing bon mots, an irrelevant aside. John Thierry is on trial for shouting racist abuse at another player.   

       According the BBC, he called the other player a "F****** black c***" (that's how they showed it on screen). For some reason, it amuses me that the only word of this undoubtedly racist slur that they could show, uncensored, was the only racial epithet in the phrase.   

       But I digress.

       As long as I dont have to go to Room 101.

       All those taking the Airship Design course, please go to room R101.

       That's just the crash course, [LordMaxwell].

       Are cargo cults part of the syllabus?
Alterother, Jul 11 2012

       Yes, right after B1 engine design.

       Don't give universities any more ideas for useless courses they can require as prerequisites for real courses. I almost dropped out because of that.

       //courses they can require as prerequisites for real courses//   

       Having only encountered "101" as a phrase rather than a taught course, are "101"s the equivalent of A- levels in the UK system?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 13 2012

       Generally, in course numbering the first digit denotes the target year of instruction, i.e. 1 for freshmen up to 4 for seniors, and 5- 9 for graduate students of various levels. This would be the year in which you would be expected to take that course, although you might well take it later than that, particularly for courses outside your major. The last two numbers are less well defined, although often the broadest classes in a subject will have the lowest numbers. X01 is usually an introductory course at that level, although X00 is common as well.   

       So for example, while Geology 464 might be Chemical Hydrogeology at a given school, Geology 101 would almost universally be Rocks for Jocks.

       Ah, right.
