Today in Systemtheorie und Regelungstechnik (my Control Systems class), the professor wrote “WOK Rezept” as the heading for the notes he was writing out. That translates to “WOK recipe,” and I thought it was funny, so I drew you a picture.
(please pardon the rushed handwriting and my mediocre art skills. The first I blame on taking notes in a foreign language. The second has no real excuse, but doodling in my notes is fun, so too bad 🙂 )
It turns out he was talking about WurzelOrtsKurve, or root-locus plots. And here I thought we were about to get a primer in Asian cooking. But the pun made class more fun and made the concept more memorable. I love it when professors come up with good ways to remember things!
