The folks behind LS1A—Harvard’s popular introductory life sciences course—have become known for renaming various ordinary aspects of their class, such as tests (“ICEs”) and homework (“pre-games”). Confused by all these unfamiliar terms? Never fear—we’ve created a handy guide to the LS1A lexicon, and added a few suggestions of our own.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or a pile of p-sets in the corner of Lamont), you’ve probably heard that chemistry professor emeritus Martin Karplus just won a Nobel Prize. This, according to The Crimson, was for his innovations in “computer simulations using classical physics and quantum mechanics that could improve scientists’ understanding of complex reactions and the development of new drugs." If you’re anything like us, you’re very impressed, and also have no idea what this actually means. For your benefit, we’ve broken down this scientific jargon into language even Folklore and Mythology concentrators can understand. WARNING: The following definitions have been provided by a sarcastic humanities concentrator who has only ever stepped foot in the Science Center to buy chai tea lattés from the Greenhouse Café.
