What are Bonarisms?
Bonarisms are defined as: quotes taken directly from Dr. Bonar during class as he is teaching.
Several students recorded some over the course of their four years at Denison.
The First Shovelfull off the Top of the Mountain
Muddies the water
Ups the ante
If you've got your separable glasses on
Tricks in your hip pocket
If a guy walks up to you and says…
It's not the salvation of the world
If you were trapped on Tahiti and only had the sand to write in, it's integration by parts
There's some virtue in putting it down in black and white
Obviously the guy who put SEC(x) on the right hand side was in a foul mood
If you have the patience of Job
It's just six of one and a half dozen of the other
Let's drag it in by the hind legs
We're just taking a teaspoon of water out of the bathtub
Let's use three dots to cover a multitude of sins
Let's bloody our noses
I'm gonna go with cosine and say my prayers
Otherwise I could whip it out in a hurry
It's like trading dimes for nickels, sooner or later you're gonna run out of money
This one looks pretty tame
Fly in the ointment
It's just walking up the hill to walk back down
Did I tell the truth?
I know what I'm doing but did the chalk misbehave?
If the chalk didn't lie…
That looks out of bounds
It's just hitting a thumbtack with a sledgehammer
Burying a mouse with a bulldozer
If the Wronskian is just zero it’s like getting an empty valentine card
You bet your boots
Don't bet your girlfriend on this one…
Well, you could have bet your girlfriend I guess
I talked to the publisher and some salesman gave me some bad dope
When you're in the quiet and comfort of your own room
“Whipsnitch” (the inverse of a zillion)
We've got the cart before the horse here
Do the same stunt over here
Suppose I walk up to you off the street and ask you
A guy parachutes into the room and wants to know what's going on, what do you tell him?
Repetition is the mother of all learning
13 is our favorite lucky number
We ought to satisfy ourselves
I'm going to erase this for all eternity
There's something I jump on my kids about with pointed heels
Nobody does this but...
We must have put some money in the collection plate yesterday
Life is being kind to us
It's not of that flavor
Has he taken leave of his senses?
Hit it with the product rule
I know this is exciting, like a wet T-shirt contest in Antarctica
Suppose a guy has handed you the following function
If some bird came by and dropped the following function on you
This looks frightening
Is that right?
If I didn't make a boo boo
I'm going to go over to the scrap paper and say a little more
I'll tell the payroll to take off $2.00
"All" is a bit encompassing
I'll bet a dollar on a doughnut, well I better not bet too heavily, I'll bet doughnut on a doughnut
He bet his boots
Any five-year-old who's done this for ten years knows...
Has this guy gone bananas over the weekend?
If I walk up to you and say Arctan of this, you had better give me one number
I'm getting these looks like: "Is he shoving me off a high bridge here?"
This is the first shovelfull off the top of the mountain
Let's do problem 2 just to double our pleasure
"Always" is a strong word
Let's do one more of these and get on with life
That's a bad habit that I have
I'm too expensive for that
Let's do a dippy little example
I know this is an insult to your intelligence
That could wreck the whole ship here, I mean it's not a minor iceberg
There's an example where one minus sign can cause the whole bridge to collapse
He was really in a foul mood this time
Life has now got radicals in it, and not just the political type
That we can do faster than making a cup of instant coffee
Get it on the fly
If I have the slightest of dubies about it
In case you're interviewing with DuPont and they ask you about SINH, you should be able to say something intelligent
You have to have the perseverance of Daniel
Am I comfortable with that? I think I am. I KNOW I am!
Right there is an honest to God...
I seem to think that was right in an earlier life, but that was last night
Man, the Wronskian is just staring at you!
The rest is just gruntwork, as if some of this hasn't been gruntwork already
D Blatto over Blatto
D Cat over Cat
Any sane person would have done this by undetermined coefficients
If you think you are a good integrator, tackle this!
How did all of this get its birth?
Now, I'm going to have to erase that
Any sane person would look at this and say...
Maybe I'm using "C" in too many contexts
What's the short of the story here folks?
Sine is an odd function, not strange just odd
X is doing double duty
I thought I might chase through an example
Does that give you worries?
Take this home and tack it up over your bed
What's your pleasure? 2+i, will that make you happy campers?
We're gonna pay the price later with harder differentiation
What's the integral of D Cabin / Cabin? Natural log. Add the "C" and you have Noah's ark
There are literally billions of solutions
If a guy steps off the bus and hands you the following function
Put it up high, it'll be a good stretching exercise
If you don't have the same eigenvalues, the whole ship is off course
I'm entitled to be in here until 29 after, you're pressing your luck by coming in here early
That hasn't got "T" in it, it has coffee instead
Otherwise we're building a skyscraper on quicksand
How do I feel at this juncture?
I don't want any fractions in my life
What did “A” start life as?
The variation that I use is "Math is the Common Denominator"
We'll do the French bathing suit version of this - just the bare essentials
If you think this cures all the ills of the world, you know, you're wrong
That is the texture of number two
“A” and “B” have gotta be sumthin if you prefer Central Ohio language better
Everybody and his brother would cancel that out
Now, frankly, I'll let you in on a little secret
This thing is making its second appearance today
You must suffer through this once in your life
And your author does this, and it's the right thing to do
Is there something that just stares at you right there?
I don't want to be in the position to say "Here's the Gospel, Here's the Gospel, Here's the Gospel"
Let's push it all the way
I've got a bad angle on this and bad lighting too
We're pulling out an awful lot of machinery to do the obvious
Does that make life take on a nice complexion?
Goody Goody Gumdrops
There's a little bit of me that really wants to do this
So what do I have? What do I get?
And I would, just to make the typesetter happy
Life comes tumbling down
I'd have to play with it
I may have messed it up. Did I mess it up? In fact I DID mess it up
I've got kind of a 10% feeling that those are mutually exclusive
Let's just blast away
I'm just playing with you
I don't want someone saying on the evaluations that he always holds us 2 hours after class
Is everyone on cloud nine with excitement about this?
It's analogous to coming up on a wreck on the highway, it just sickens you but there's nothing you can do about it
Progress is often bloodying our noses a lot
That way there's not so much on the line
I'm not gonna swing at that
There's an example where one keystroke can mean the difference between night and day
Does that give you worries?
Well, Maple has so many blasted commands
You can bet your life
If there's justice in the world like I hope there is
In the same spirit
You're gonna brush off a little rust in your factoring
That's the cheapie
By gollies maybe it'll factor. Maybe it won't
Any questions on that? I don't want to just throw this up here
Let's test ourselves
There are a thousand ways to solve this, well not quite 1,000
I'm no different than you in some senses, well, most senses
Let's walk through this example
Let's differentiate X, not drink lemonade
I was once on your side of the desk
How do you feel in one syllable?
There's a certain amount of contradiction here, unless my logic isn't serving me well today
That's almost the truth
You think you've topped the mountain
Let's see if we can prejudice our opinion here
If you put monkeys at the typesetter, eventually they will come up with Shakespeare's work
Don’t get me wrong, I'm not calling you monkeys
The game is over before it commences
It's an entirely new ballgame
I don't want to wave my hands at this
Show a function defined by that gets you out of the woods
It isn't 100% mysterious where these come from
Somebody got thrown through the door
Do that and the game's over
Why do I need to convince you that is a sem-a-circle?
Let's go back to the world's simplest case
I did some pretty heavy work there
That is to say…
Now life will be better, life will be a LOT better
This would have to be a shocker
And I grant you…
By gollies you can't do that
This just doesn't look hopeful
I'm a little disbelieving here
I think that “X” got lost, and that says I ate some bad cereal this morning
Let's write it in bigger print
I'm drawing on all my talent and taking the derivative of that thing and getting that thing
It was a successful candidate--not like Bob Dole; For him it just didn't work out
It's just a hope and a prayer
Throw this back in the equation
I'm replacing “P” by what it is
That's the trouble with thinking ahead, I was thinking ahead. You should never think ahead
I don't want Y-primes in my life
Maybe that will work. Maybe it won't
That one will yield in a hurry
PX, like post exchange if you're in the military
In fear that we're going to see the forest but never count one tree I'll do an earlier example
I'm not a perfect man, the last perfect man to walk the Earth got nailed to a cross
Who will show their diligence today?
The whole shebang
If you are just an ordinary guy on the street in downtown Granville
That's the way my teacher taught me
Let's see the texture of one of that flavor
If that is what “P” is, what the dickens is P-prime?
You're not gonna eliminate “Y” if its mate is looking out for it
I'm gonna gain some ground here
I bet you guys buy the large Sprite then take the small
That's easier than rolling off a log
This is an interesting consumer group, you pay for something then you don't want it
Well I've got 5 minutes...I'd hate to waste your valuable tuition money and mine
I didn't have an “X”. All of the sudden I have an “X”. That's not good business
Let's kill a -2 if you don't mind
Human nature is interesting. That's the reason we have a Psych department
Then you draw on all your integration talents
I don't want to bet a day's wages on that
If cat is the inverse sine of elephant, then elephant is the sine of cat. I mean so we don't use “X” and “Y” we can use cats and elephants
My day gets an extra boost from you people
Seven. Seven is my favorite number
Now just integrate and say your prayers
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That's why we match up husband and wife a lot
Let's pretend you're in the battlezone under attack. You don't want to stick your head out of the foxhole
I've got to take this discussion to a higher plane
Kill as many Y-primes as you can
That's what your author exhibits
Because the chain rule is in our life, you have to do 2 derivatives
If I depend on my friend for some cake, and he's getting his cake from his wife, I'm really depending on his wife for cake
I'm giving you a $2.00 answer for a $1.75 question
We can't live with dP/dX
I'm not claiming you need a Ph.D. in the obvious to see this
We're going to clear the air once and for all
If you have got one of the Clairaut flavor
I'm not unduly unwise about what I did
You need to know all three flavors
2P or not to be
We know we're living right if that shows up in our life
Spending some time in the woods isn't so bad
He shows up parachuting to Earth, I mean he didn't just take the train
People don't just go around solving cubics
Let's move on because we really need to taste two more flavors
Mathematicians struggle for half their life
I'm going to say P equals Y-prime because it does
Let me hold your hand and guide you through #1
You could leave it like that and I would not be an unsettled guy
Why don't you work this as fast as I work it?
This is almost overkill but let's keep it going
I could just say this is clear to the casual observer
Now I think you can see our hopes rising and escalating
Frankly it's got a prayer. Nope, its gonna miss by a hair
You keep me honest. Whoops, I'm not honest!
So how do I feel? Pretty bad
And really, it's just two lines of code folks
Let's shove this back up here
I'll call it “K” to cover myself
99 times out of 100, well maybe that's a little too strong
I don't want to be just dispersing words here
Maybe I should just make this a 4-story fraction so everyone including myself can see it
P=CX^2, now we should start feeling pretty good
You should major in underwater fire fighting
Well I don't like those smelly boards, we call them “Euphoria boards”; I mean you might as well go sniff a bunch of airplane glue
We'll do some mental gymnastics here
It is chapter 16, pure and simple
So then what do you say to yourself?
I don't want to start this problem and mess it up myself
Y-prime equals P because P equals Y-prime
Look upstairs and to the left and you have a cancellation buddy
We're going to have so many constants that I'm going to have to label them K1, K2 and K3
This has got to go folks
There's something called big-O in mathematics that I'll explain someday
I've provided you with the perfect coding, with no typos
I got on a roll with writing pluses
Right there is what changes the complexion of life a lot
Later on we'll classify these as 2 flavors
If you've got 1 over 1 minus box, it equals box to the N
Why, the whole purpose there was to get X-3 in the box
Let's walk through this as gently as I can
This kinda looks like doubletalk
That's an awful lot of chalk to use
Something like that can just kill the whole ship
Did I get that last night? Yes I did
We'll chop it up fine so no one chokes on it
If a guy approaches me in the bar, I'll show him my pistol and say "What was that you wanted again?" If he still isn't convinced then I'll pull out my cannon
Something has nothing to do with anything at this juncture
We'll break singular points up into 2 flavors later -- chocolate and cherry
Do not pass go, do not collect $200, go directly to the answer
The game is over; you can't even go for an extra point or a field goal
Let's take 13 just to pick on a lucky number
Same Sh*t, Different Day
(One Year Later)
I reached up into the sky and the good Lord handed it to me. Now I'll tell you what request I made to get it
If you've got your differentiation glasses on
Any 5-year-old who has practiced this for 6 or 7 years is good at it
The minus is the iceberg that hit the Titanic
You know that I'm living the clean life when it simplifies as much as it does
That should cure most all the ills
To derive the trig substitutions is to reinvent the wheel
The problem here is--one little glitch and the world comes tumbling down
It's not only "am I in the ballpark" but "am I doing it right?"
I realize that you can't just go around willy-nilly canceling things
You've gotta be careful just generally dropping things
The next version of Maple is so enhanced that it muddies the waters
I like an alert audience
It's upside down or downside up, depending on how you look at it
You didn't have your algebra glasses on (M.D.W. to D.D.B.)
You may not think the eye-appeal is super
This will no doubt bring back good intentions
I don't want any mystery about what's coming
Do you do it brute force or in your head? It's better to do it in your head
Most people could clear fractions at this juncture
Yeah, I would be 97% happy
A lot of this is being careful and not letting the pen misbehave
Maybe I'm telling you the obvious
Enter these lines of code and reflect for a moment
This new version of code is driving me up the wall
There's no market for these (handouts) on the street
Let's pretend we're under battle conditions
Let's pick on number 13, since it's a good lucky number
That wasn't something to blow you out of the water
That's just a 3- or 4-stepper there
Obviously, what's the cheapest method?
The easiest way out of the woods is using exactness
Let's let somebody over 40 pick the problem
e, then ln -- that's a nice way to go around in a circle
COS(x) * SEC(x) is a complicated way of writing 1
It looks like it's not trying to skate to the top of Mt. Everest
In the vernacular of central Ohio, we are right on the money
We are going to take a little shovelful off of Mt. Everest with Numerical Methods
It's not for the faint of heart
Unless you have the patience of Job
Obviously, folks, this can almost do brain damage
Newton's Law of Cooling is something you should write home to your parents about
I have had Physics I for 3 or 4 years
That's precisely what I got when Jay Leno was on
Let's see if my work from last night withstands the light of day
You could toss it in a barrel of molasses
If I brought a cold can of pop in the room, the temperature changes -- It's about the equivalent to what a railroad rail would bend if a fly lighted on it
The best way to begin a 1000-mile journey is to take the first step... but it's not a 1000-mile journey; it's more like a half-mile journey
2 = e^(.02t) --> t = 30 something. They should make a TV show with that title
Is this the high point of the week for you?
Trent, how are things in my Amen corner?
That's the reason Pythagoras made his appearance on this Earth
Did I tell the truth?
Inspecting is a scientific word for guessing
If you are a sophisticated guesser, then life gets better.
This is not something you do while dining at the Granville Inn
You say your prayers, put 5 dollars extra in the collection plate
If you saw this in earlier chapters, you would have pushed the panic button
Let's see if that's what I thought in an earlier life
The casual observer can push on
Goody goody gumdrops
This is like organizing 200 kindergartners in a fire drill
(Changing the minus to a plus) can almost be corrected in your notes without an eraser
It's like buying air conditioner fluid for your car and then saying don't deliver it
This'll bring back good memories of when you turned 16
I hear a groundswell of interest for tangent
(3W - 2*cos(Y)) dW <-- don't want a dwi; that shows up in the newspaper
What's dz? And don't tell me: "a sorority"
You would be almost insulted if I put that on the test, wouldn't you?
You don't mind being insulted under these conditions
Let's go. Anyway, my time's expensive at this point. I have to go get my food stamps anyway
One week from today, you get an opportunity to excel -- you might want to prep yourself
Let's use a "z" -- if you take complex analysis, you'll see about 1000 of these. Every time you put the chalk to the board, it's z z z, and it's not supposed to put you to sleep, either
If this is helpful, I want to spend your tuition payment as you see fit
I don't want to put an "N" in your notes, and then you get to the White House, it goes in the archives, and I look bad
Just about as exciting as a month-old newspaper, right?
10.5 ft/sec, not blades of grass per second
0 = 0. We love to see equations that are that profound
(to Kim) You're kind-of stealing my thunder
It wasn't like some bird flew by with a banner and gave me these answers
This guys' in Troublesville in terms of having 0 in what places?
I'm gonna bring in that fly one of these days--I've got it in my office (the fly in the ointment)
You can't live with 2 of them... you'll get charged with polygamy
Any solution in the world, and there are literally millions of them, must have that texture
Now let's back up, because I'm getting the cart before the horse here
A room full of monkeys will eventually type out Shakespeare
If you had the wrong cereal this morning, it can damage your thinking machine
This is the biggest struggle I've had all semester
Three dots covers a multitude of sins
Do you feel like your tuition money is being well spent?
By gollys that's the most astute observation I've heard all day
What are the possible roots here? 1, 2, and 4. So we don't need a century of time to do this
Life is not 100% ordinary as you might think
I'm going to apply the derivative operator to that whole shebang
It's like putting socks and shoes on in the morning -- it's important you get the order right
We could obviously peek in the book, but let's pretend we are drawing on our skills
See this for what it is
I realize, if you lay this down on the sidewalk, nobody's going to appreciate it
Now, why do we feel good about it?
I want you to pretend you've never seen this, and then do it yourself
This will push the clouds aside, and you'll see the sunlight
It's too early to go to lunch, so I guess you can just go to class. Otherwise, I was gonna say you could go indulge and bulge
It's not like I'm asking you to keep 50 corks underwater at the same time
I just erased the answer, but you've got it in your notes for all eternity
So, this would put an insomniac to sleep
(To Mary) Can you help your dear ol' dad here?
I'm awfully expensive to do arithmetic
(To Trent) You have the markings of a teacher
(Dr. Bonar actually drew a picture frame, complete with a hanging string & a nail, on the board, to surround Euler's formula: e^(ix) = cos(x) + i*sin(x) = cis(x). I can't believe it, but he actually did that.)
I don't want something profound carved on my tombstone, but if I had to, then this (Euler's formula) is one of the biggies. -- Now, let's not let this leave the room.
That should bring back memories, if not, fun memories
An unnamed lobbyist said, "Dad, you ought to make it later"
This should not keep you up past midnight, or cause you to find a high bridge to jump off of
e^(i*Pi) + 1 = 0. It's a nice little thing to write to your parents about, if you're writing a letter home
Right there is a stray mark on the board--Dr. Westmoreland left it in the last class
I mean, you're supposed to make intelligent guesses
There's a theorem: minus times minus is plus
If life works as we want
Slap an operator on it
"hit it" means "apply"
I was thinking so much about sin that I couldn't think about c-o-s
I'll tell the payroll office to take off 2 dollars, since I would take off 2 points
The rest of it is "plug in and turn the crank"
See if you can do all of them without stubbing your toe
25's got a different wrinkle to it
We don't violate the 10 commandments
We can get the answer in a whipsnitch
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out
If I put up 2x^2 + 7x + 3 = ax^2 + bx + c and say, "what's a, b, and c," then Simple Sam and his brother's going to say, "a = 2, b = 7, c = 3." And if I ask why, he'll probably raise his voice and say, "they are linearly independent."
Now a red flag kind-of goes up at this point
Multiply by 3. That won't strain our machinery
Did we spread confusion or did we spread clarity?
I'm not going to marry Elizabeth Taylor. I can tell ya I feel like Elizabeth Taylor's eighth husband--I know what I need to do, but now can I do it?
That gives you the particular solution in a whipsnitch. I'm going to define that carefully someday.
It's really intelligence by foresight
"Nice-looking" means it's a solution to a homogeneous differential equation with constant coefficients
I'm slightly better than a babe in the woods on Maple
I wouldn't win any prizes at a Maple contest
It's a sinkhole for time
Maple is like beating your head with a hammer--it feels good when you stop
Now what do you say to yourself under your breath? "That's lovely!"
What flavor is this, if you stop at the ice cream store?
I'm about as organized as a cat with diarrhea
I don't want to just say, "This is the Gospel, this is the Gospel, this is the Gospel."
This is not exactly a David Copperfield stunt that we're doing here
That looks about as messy as a kitten with diarrhea
"Right on, Brother Bonar!" should be coming next
It's another step on the ladder on our way all the way up to Heaven
That's the reason I got my sledgehammer out of the toolshed
Now we start to get frightened
To help out some ills, we say...
Let's do it with lots of chalk
Now I'm not doing this for my health
I'm approaching senior citizen status... I need help; help and understanding
That's doesn't have much eye-appeal until you're a mathematician
If I asked a third-grader to find 2 numbers to make that (3x + 3y = 0) happy...
Frankly, it's not like asking Bobby Ray Hall to win the Indy 500 driving a beetle
I get 2 equations in the twinkling of an eye
What's your pleasure at this point?
You judiciously juggle those
Frankly, folks, I'm not inclined to let you have too much party time, but maybe 6 minutes won't ruin you
"F = ma" At some point in your life, you fell in love with that, and are still in love with it, no doubt
It'll come out in the wash, and we've got good machinery doing the washing things
5 = (1/2) * k. Get our calculators, and what is k?
Kim, what did you do this weekend? I mean, I don't want to pry
How old is this young whippersnapper?
That's better than good! That's super! Wait till you start wearing bifocals
1/4 = c1 + 0 + 0. And then, drawing on our algebra skills, what is c1?
Simple Sam and his brother would see that, but I didn't
I don't know that I'm using your tuition time all that efficiently
You know, I think I could walk through a blizzard for a couple of miles easier than doing this
This guy's going to steer the ship. That's guy's going to try, but won't succeed
Do you know where the expression "going haywire" comes from? "Hooray for our side"? You're getting a liberal arts education--you need to know these kind of things
I need my Amen, people
Now we're not going to have time to build that snowman, so we'll do it at a later date
I turned something you would have been as comfortable with as cuddling with your cat into something you probably aren't as comfortable with
I'm going to start eating apples so I don't make so many mistakes here
I'm sure we're preaching to the saved
There is a theorem that says 2m - 2m = 0
The amount of rum I had would fit in a thimble
But there's no rule, no Commandment in the Bible, that says it has to be that way
If you watch the Walton's, "the recipe" means the recipe for making moonshine
How are they related? They're not brother and sister--they're complex conjugates
We're about there, so don't feel like we're on the Titanic and hit an iceberg
He's in a much, much fouler mood
It's a lot easier than bicycling up a hill in a windstorm
You know, your parents take you by the hospital and show you where you came from
7, 11, if you're thinking in convenience store terms
Well, we'll wait a few more minutes, but he's probably at the library engrossed in his reading
It is the gospel--it comes straight from the book of Daniel
"It's no different than getting a tire out of your car or something. You figure out a way to do it." (D.D.B.) "You call AAA." (Mary)
There's a theorem: 5 of something minus 4 of something is 1 of something
I can see the excitement level for that is immense
"I think the 'm' just fell off the chalkboard." (Katie)
"I'm so glad to have an alert audience, and gentle too!" (D.D.B.)
Do you people know about 3 & 1 oil?
A minor, minor glitch, but it can sink the Titanic if you have those glitches
Maybe we just need to have it in Chicago talk
Now the guy hands us this differential equation
Why do we have at least mild interest in it?
Anyway, we kind of "skinned the cat in two ways," in vernacular central Ohio
What's the origin of "Okee-dok"? Research that. Go to the library. Get on the web
P = p + xp' + f'(p)*p'. My algebra teacher taught me that I could cancel those ("P" on each side of this equation)
I whipped out 6 or 8 of these, just to make sure I knocked off rust from a previous life
I have a guilt complex when I let you out early, but I can go to confession
Now your level of excitement for that is probably matched by mine
What's the moral of the story? Work hard. Say your prayers. There's a theorem somewhere that says work coupled with prayer amounts to something
Certainly half of a constant is a constant. If you want me to, I'll prove that theorem
I need that kind of assistance, wayward fellow that I am
You can tell I ate too many Easter eggs
You do that until you get blisters on your hand about it
With probability .99, so that gives me a little room to squirm
There's an old saying--taking a test is no time to do research
(About the younger Bedient) Now he's a former student, so I can kind-of put my hand on his shoulder and ask him if he knows what he's doing
I'm not going to stand up here and pretend I understand what he's doing
