Slide Rule Lessons

Two of my readers (independently, so far as I know) actually asked me to publish lessons on how to use a slide rule. I published one last week, and this morning I was working on a second lesson. Then it occurred to me that someone else might have done this already, so I Googled a bit and found that my friend Mike Konshak, of the International Slide Rule Museum, already had an excellent slide rule course up on the web!

I don’t see much point in duplicating what he’s done, and I don’t see much opportunity to do it better. So at the risk of alienating a significant fraction of my readers, I hereby declare my slide rule lessons have been adjourned. Go look at Mike’s course!
