Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Uh oh, sounds like one of those types who is busy everyday for the next 12 years types.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Could be the type that never goes out with you because she always has a chore like getting her pet chihuahua's toenails clipped.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Just got an e-mail from Katie:

"I mainly just checked my work from the answers in the back of the book, but if I was really stuck on a question, my teacher would help me. I don't mind self teaching, especially if it's a topic I like, but sometimes I think it is quite nice to be in a class- you can ask more questions, and have more than just the examples in the book to look at, as well as being a bit more relaxing because you don't have to worry about finnishing the course to early or too late. What do you think?- I guess you had to self-teach loads of modules, I'm not sure my school even owns books for S4 or M5.

No, sadly my family loves foreign holidays, though I am always campaigning for more time in Britain- my parents and sister love cycling, so we seem to always end up in Switzerland or Austria- I prefer more lazy holidays- rambling walks and board games are more my cup of tea, but I know that is a bit of a boring outlook.
I agree, I think that Trinity is just too scary- Churchill is cool though, and if I remember correctly, I think it's really near the maths buildings? so you can get up really late, which is always a bonus. And yes, my mother is Scottish- I'm not really a whisky/ deep fried mars bar person, but I do have a weakness for haggis- it's like sausages, but nicer.

I went to [Katie's school] for years 7-11 too, its quite a good school- I know a few people who do well all the time, but I don't think it's exceptionally good- not a grammar school or anything. Sadly we do AQA Physics and OCR Chemistry, so we're not doing the same exams, but there's probably lots of overlap anyway. I'm finding chemistry really dull and Physics really interesting at the moment, which is the opposite of what I thought last year. Which do you prefer at the moment?"

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I would apply the three time rule here. But only if extremely interested.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

To be honest, I am basing everything on how she sounds via e-mail and from what I remember she looked like from a couple years ago. I have no idea how she looks now. No physical attributes I can really talk about.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I'm also confused because according to the wiki article, her school is a grammar school.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

That is really too nebulous. You will need more to go on than that. How can you get more info?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

What she looks like might be a start. Something visual is always better.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I vaguely remember how she looks but I'm not sure. Blonde hair, blue eyes, wears glasses, fairly busty. She is overweight though, I think. But more good attributes than bad ones.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

That is not very long ago. If you want to go out with use the standard 3 times rule.

Okay. I did not ask her out yet though, I just asked what she was doing on the weekend. Do you think I should ask about today?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Are you interested in her? I mean really interested enough to enjoy yourself if she says yes?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I'm not sure these days, I feel like my standards have been lowered quite a lot. I've never hung out with her before so not sure if I'd enjoy myself.

I am going to shower now, I will be back in 20 mins or so.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Hi;

Not really, I leave a lot of leeway in a thread unless the OP complains then I clean it up. Since he is the OP he may ask that I delete the whole thread which has happened before.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

There is already a chat link that everyone here can use. I go down there and no one is ever there. Math types like to shoot the breeze and there is nothing we can do except join in.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

R said she is working all day today (not a job, just schoolwork during her half-term, like me) and she also replied to my e-mail just now. I can post her e-mail but it is long.
