Advanced Preparation Suggestions:
1. Please review your high school math about fractions, and become familiar with how they operate. We will work a lot with the principle of fractions as we learn and practice the units of energy. Using these basic building blocks is where some participants have gotten slowed down a bit in previous workshops.
2. It will be helpful if you read through all or at least some of Paul's articles about solar applications on the CRESTONE SOLAR SCHOOL website, you will find them under Solar Energy Articles
