]]>So I studied up on the units for Atmospheric Pressure. *Disclaimer: *This is crude. I want to get some numbers I can remember.

Pa is an SI unit for atmospheric pressure. It means Pascal. One Pascal is 1 Newton per square meter. hPa is hectopascal. 1 hPa = 100 Pa

The ‘Imperial’ (English) unit would be PSI (pounds per square inch). BTW, 1 PSI is quite a bit, but 1 Pascal isn’t much.

Often the weather person on television give the atmospheric pressure in inches of Mercury (inHg).

1 inHg = 33.9 hPa

.02953 inHg = 1 hPa

1000 hPa (29.5 inHg) is low pressure.

1010 hPa (29.8 inHg) is ‘regular’ pressure.

1040 hPa (30.7 inHg) is high pressure.

The key is *which direction* is the barometric pressure going (rising or decreasing).

]]>This sounds promising. Students do not like (or, equivalently, are not motivated) to take a semester-long remediation course.

Under this plan, the students *may* be taking a similar amount of math, but the (previous) pre-requisite is now a corequisite.
