Since I was little, I've always enjoyed
taking apart radios and electronic
equipment and putting them back
together. Only rarely did I get an electric
shock. I built my first "personal
computer" in 1976, an Altair 8800,
which came with an impressive 1024
bytes of memory. Things have of course
progressed for you folks coming through
high school in the 21st century! This
enjoyment of learning how things work
extends to mathematics. You can use
equations and models to describe the
operation of something real, or use logic
to describe the function of electronic
components.
