Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhat is a secondary school in your system? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12752 20131219 03:39:45
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaFor people aged 1116, plus something called Sixth Form for 1619. Normally Year 7 in the UK is equivalent to 8th Grade in the US, I think. #12753 20131219 03:45:15
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI see what you mean. Would you like teaching there? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12754 20131219 03:47:12
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaDefinitely not  I don't want to babysit a bunch of hormonal teenagers, after seeing the kind of torture they put teachers through throughout secondary school. It has to be at an undergraduate level or beyond... #12755 20131219 03:50:21
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaOver here no one wants that job either and I do not blame them. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12756 20131219 03:55:22
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaFor the same reason? #12757 20131219 04:03:49
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula13% ? That is a big cut. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12758 20131219 05:08:24
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYes, it is pretty big. There were numerous strikes at UCL because of it. I already think that they don't earn enough, considering that they are leaders in their field. A few lecturers I believe earn several thousands below the national average. #12759 20131219 05:10:13
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIt is pretty much the same here, lots of cuts. Teachers and professors have always been at the bottom of the list. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12760 20131219 05:13:15#12761 20131219 05:35:39
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaPart of the decline of education in the country especially in technical fields. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12762 20131219 09:33:48
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaKatie wants to be a teacher at secondary school. I wonder why. #12763 20131219 09:43:31
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaShe might like children. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12764 20131219 09:56:43
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI guess that is one reason why they want to teach at that level. #12765 20131219 10:02:17
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaOver here teachers need to take self defense classes. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12766 20131219 10:10:22
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSame was true for my school. I don't think there were any serious injuries caused to teachers but there were a few things that happened, like teachers getting punched, pushed, had chairs thrown at them and once peppersprayed I believe! #12767 20131219 10:12:33
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaOver here the thugs head to school and there are stabbings. Kids pass through metal detectors. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12768 20131219 10:14:39
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaAnd there are security guards with guns, I heard? #12769 20131219 10:25:25
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYes, there are. I am glad I do not have to go to the modern school. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12770 20131219 21:08:36
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIt can be terrifying at times but I still managed to enjoy it on occasion. #12771 20131219 21:18:11
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaBack in the old days you only had to worry about getting into a fistfight with another kid your same age and size. Nowadays, kids carry guns and other weapons. They travel in packs like wild dogs and stomp on a person when he is down. They have no honor, no integrity and no future other than prison or the city morgue. Pretty bleak in my opinion. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12772 20131219 23:27:20
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaAgreed. I am very much glad those years are behind me... #12773 20131220 02:04:18
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaDo you think you would rather work in a lab then a teacher? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12774 20131220 02:10:36
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaBy teacher, do you mean a highschool teacher? And by lab, what sort of lab? #12775 20131220 02:28:51
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI meant working in industry or government instead of any type of teaching. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
