Exponentials ie chapters 3 and 4 of the Crash Course

 

Thanks for the great work Mr Martenson - I've been looking in on your  valuable activity since the first (internet available) version of the Crash Course.

Since you generously request input regarding its content, I do have one remark to offer:  I'm sure others somewhere must have already commented on this but just in case: concerning chapters 3 and 4 of the Course (ie exponentials), in ch 3 you state why you prefer to use the term "amount" in place of "rate," indicating that the latter type of change is constant whereas the former is not. I would take issue with that statement (with all due respect to Albert Bartlett) as it seems to be clear that this is not the case, ie "rates" can be just as variable as "amounts."

I recommend David Coutts'  website, called The Exponentialist, which demonstrates this in some detail.

Cordially,

J-Gav
