I have formal training in physics, but tend to approach it very intuitively; I prefer estimation over exact calculation, principles over details. I believe many problems can be solved by making a careful sketch. Label your axes, and don't use insignificant digits.

I visit this site in the hope of sharing my enthusiasm and occasional insights with others.
