Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI would do it but probably not for long. It's difficult for me to say if I'd enjoy it because I have no industrial experience. With teaching, at least I have a fairly good idea of what it entails, having been around them for so long. #12777 20131220 02:40:41
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI meant in the capacity of a math consultant, a problem solver. 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. #12778 20131220 02:59:22
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou mean like working in risk management or as an actuary, for example? #12779 20131220 03:13:23
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThose are two possibilities but some companies hire mathematicians to solve problems for them.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat is one thing that I did like about studying a degree in mathematics  lots of potential career paths. #12781 20131220 05:56:57
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat is true, wherever they use math. Pay over here is pretty good for them. How is it over there? In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIt varies. A lot of mathematicians like to work in the financial sector mostly because it pays so well. I think most of the ones I've talked to on my course want to do that. Haven't met a single one who wanted to lecture, though. All three girls I've talked to said they wanted to be maths teachers at highschool level. #12783 20131220 06:11:08#12784 20131220 11:09:24
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaFor some reason I always felt that the girls would make better teachers. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaA bit more empathy in 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.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI remember reading about some study that was done that showed that children are more likely to prefer a male teacher over a female one. #12788 20131220 12:22:16
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat still does not refute the statement that the women might make better teachers. Also, that study sure did not apply to me. I did decidedly better in classes with female instructors. Possibly because my attendance was much, much better. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI was in love with them they were all foxes. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaDidn't that make it harder to concentrate in their lessons? #12792 20131223 00:46:36
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaFor some reason it did not. I wanted to do well. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaStrange, most of my teachers were ugly old women who had had all the passion sucked out of them over the years. #12794 20131223 01:54:59
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI think we have the makings of a sociomigratory trend. Based on these 2 results I can conjecture that the young vibrant babes flocked together while the passionless ones did also. Stockholm here I come and keep that Nobel prize warm for me! 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.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI think it should be a teacher's obligation to make their lessons or lectures interesting. Too bad that all of the females I have met on my course who want to be maths teachers don't even seem to like maths that much, so it is doubtful they will be passionate about it in their teaching. #12796 20131223 03:07:23
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI think that is a trend. Most people are not passionate about anything. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIt sure is and I think the girls are the more materialistic then the guys are. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaFrom the teachers I have had, there have been more passionate male teachers than female teachers, despite having more female teachers. Odd. Or, perhaps it is how I perceive that passion which is the issue here. #12800 20131223 05:15:30
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaInteresting I have just been asked what I thought of Richard Stallman. They are not related but it is hard to believe that anyone should ask for my opinion on anything other than chicken cacciatore. I presume you mean the physicist. I do not like physics and refuse to do any but I have seen a lecture or two of his on youtube and he looks okay to me. I have never seen him in person because he is at MIT which is very far from me.
