Fermi Questions C

Post by Adi1008 » August 4th, 2018, 11:28 pm

Fermi Questions C: Teams provide answers to a series of Fermi Questions, which are science-related questions that seek fast, rough estimates of a quantity which is either difficult or impossible to measure directly.

http://www.fermiquestions.com/play has seemed to stop working, anyone else have this problem?

If it did rip, it was probably one of the best beginning resources out there for fermi...

Looks like it is... Hopefully, it's temporary.

Yep, looks like the domain expired. Anyone know if the code was online somewhere?

I mean the sites a good place to start, but using invite tests or tests here in the test exchange would probably be a better way to study once you understand the basics

Looks like I'm doomed.

But seriously, is there a better use of time than looking at Wikipedia order of magnitude pages? How'd you guys start out?

I initially started with the Fermi site (rip), and kinda studied together with someone who had a better understanding and could explain a few things that I didn't get. When I got some Fermi tests, I took them, and you should find out what you did wrong and figure out how to get the correct answers (with a calculator and google basically just to understand the process of it) and memorize the information you didn't know. Just keep taking tests and note what you did wrong so next time you (hopefully) won't make the same mistake
