D. Styer,
Am. J. Phys.,

**67**(12), 1094-1095 (1999).All too often, courses in thermodynamics and statistical mechanics barrage their students with numerous equations that are left unexamined and uninvestigated. This note explains how…

**Student Estimates of Probability and Uncertainty in Advanced Laboratory and Statistical Physics Courses**
D. Mountcastle, B. Bucy, and J. Thompson,
PERC 2007 Proceedings, 152-155.

Equilibrium properties of macroscopic systems are highly predictable as n, the number of particles approaches and exceeds Avogadro's number; theories of statistical physics depend on…
