Our experience over the last five months with AoPS's Prealgebra course has been transformational! Jean R. Boing Boing AoPS courses are a wonderful balance of challenge and guidance, constantly stretching students and inviting them to wrestle with problems at their own pace until they reach epiphanies. I wish AoPS had been around when I was in high school. He is pumped for each Wednesday and has to really work to solve the problems. He's always loved math, but cannot get enough of it now.
Burton and Martin continued their musical collaboration after becoming students at Chabot College in Hayward, California. Their audition was recorded on video and features some of the earliest footage of Burton's playing style. The video also shows Burton playing parts of what would soon be two Metallica songs: his signature bass solo, " Anesthesia - Pulling Teeth", and the chromatic intro to " For Whom the Bell Tolls ".
Burton recorded the track "Such a Shame" with the band on the second Metal Massacre compilation. Upon hearing, as Hetfield described it, "this amazing shredding" which later became " Anesthesia - Pulling Teeth" , the two went in search of what they thought was an amazing guitar player.
When they learned that what they had heard was a bass solo by Burton, they decided to recruit him for their own band. They asked him to replace departed bassist Ron McGovney , and since Burton thought that Trauma was "starting to get a little commercial",  he agreed. The idea of having to move to Los Angeles did not sit well with him, and said he would join only if the band would relocate from Los Angeles to his native San Francisco Bay Area.
Burton's first recording with Metallica was the Megaforce demo.
A demo tape the band had made prior to Burton's joining, No Life 'til Leather, managed to come into the hands of Jon Zazula, owner of Megaforce Records. Metallica's debut album, Kill 'Em All, was originally intended to inherit the name of one of their earlier demo releases predating Burton's participation , which was Metal Up Your Ass,  but the record company did not like the title and insisted on changing it. After the band learned of the change, Burton said "We should just kill 'em all, man," which gave the band members an idea for the new title.
The album was released on July 25, through Megaforce Records. The band's second studio album, Ride the Lightning , showcased the band's increasing musical growth.
The increase of musicianship on Ride the Lightning caught the attention of major record labels.
The album also contained Burton's favorite Metallica song " Master of Puppets ". Burton's final performance was in Stockholm , Sweden , at the Solnahallen Arena on September 26, , one day before his death. To decide who received pick of the bunks, Kirk Hammett and Burton drew cards.
Cliff Burton memorial stone October 15, Cliff Burton memorial stone October 15, The bus driver said that the crash was caused by the bus hitting a patch of black ice on the road, but James Hetfield later stated that he first believed the bus flipped because the driver was drunk.
Hetfield also stated that he walked long distances down the road looking for black ice and found none.
This was confirmed by police who — like Hetfield — also found no ice on the road. Ljungby detective Arne Pettersson was reported in a local newspaper to have said the tracks at the accident site were exactly like ones seen when drivers fall asleep at the wheel.
However, the driver stated under oath that he had slept during the day and was fully rested; his testimony was confirmed by the driver of a second tour bus that was carrying the band's crew and equipment. He is pumped for each Wednesday and has to really work to solve the problems. He's always loved math, but cannot get enough of it now.
Way to provide the best educational product this Dad has found anywhere! John C. I'm impressed at how much my son loved Precalculus. Sometimes he spent two days on his written proofs! I love that students weren't treated with kid gloves but instead afforded respect as burgeoning mathematicians. Now he's looking forward to Calculus. My daughter was already very good at math before she took Prealgebra through AoPS.
Since then, she's become an even stronger and more confident problem solver while progressing through the curriculum.
Russell We were incredibly lucky to have three passionate instructors in ChemWOOT who were able to capture the beauty and diversity of chemistry. This class was like a reaction chamber of some of the most motivated chemistry students in the country. The experience was really powerful.
In the process of doing harder problems than I ever knew I could, I've also begun to see geometry as an art.
