## LRC Educational Outreach Activities

Because the scalar science of the LRC is new and unfamiliar, there is a great need to educate those who are interested in knowing more about it. However, the members of this group range from the casual layman, whose curiosity is piqued, to the serious professional, whose training and knowledge, in many ways, challenge the learning process. There are also many people in between these two extremes, whether under graduate student, just beginning to consider a career in physics, a graduate student whose training is beginning to gather some serious momentum, or a post doc whose career is beginning to solidify.

However, not only do the potential students of the new science range widely in interest and preparation, but the material itself ranges from the ancient and abstract foundations of numbers, mathematics, and geometry, to the fundamental concepts of motion, space, and time, and the application of new principles in these subjects to the microcosmic, the mesocosmic, and the macrocosmic realms within the structure of the physical universe.

Therefore, the LRC strives to prepare and present a wide range of instructional material and activities, designed to assist students of the new science in learning as much about it as possible. There are two categories of subjects available. The first category treats the subjects of the Reciprocal System of Physical Theory (RST), and the Reciprocal System of Mathematics (RSM), and compares and contrasts them with the legacy system of physical theory (LST), and the legacy system of mathematics (LSM). The second category treats the application of these concepts to the development of scalar system physical theory,contrasting it with the LST theories in these areas, as much as possible.

Certainly, this is a huge undertaking, and we can’t run faster than we have strength, but we will do what we can to provide tutorials, self-study aids, books, articles, and online materials, as well as learning activities such as online discussion forums, meetings, and conferences. These materials and activities are designed to support the formal course instruction at the LRC in the two categories described above. The courses in the first category form a core curriculum that consists of six courses of general classroom instruction, divided into two areas of study. The courses in the second category include studies in the developement of scalar system physical theory on three major scales: the microcosmic, the mesocosmic, and the macrocosmic scales.

The first area of general instruction is entitled, *The Modern Crisis in Theoretical Physics*, and its courses are designed to provide a thorough understanding of the nature of the current crisis in fundamental physics, as a background setting for the emergence of the new scalar system of science.

The second area of general instruction is entitled, *The Fundamentals of Scalar Science*, and it consists of three courses that teach the fundamentals of the new science, in the context of the historical development of legacy physics and its influence on the development of mathematics and geometry. The new scalar principles of numbers and magnitude are taught by comparing and contrasting them with the traditional vectorial principles of number and magnitude in a way that provides crucial insight into how the two sets of principles are related in the structure of the physical universe.

The specialized category of instruction is entitled, *Scalar Theory Studies*, and it consists of three specialized courses focusing on the specific disciplines of scalar system theory at the LRC. The Microcosmic Studies course focuses on the scalar system as it pertains to observations in particle, atomic, and nuclear physics experiments. The Mesocosmic Studies course focuses on the scalar system as it pertains to observations in condensed matter, molecular, and plasma physics experiments, and the Macrocosmic Studies course focuses on the scalar system as it pertains to observations in astrophysics, geo/planetary physics, and cosmology.

Successful completion of all of the courses in the core curriculum of the first category, in addition to the successful completion of one of the specialized courses in the second category, fulfills the course requirements for the LRC Certificate of Graduation (CG).
