Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYes and now they hate themselves. 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. #12827 20140106 12:20:38
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaAnd so the maths hatred is perpetuated... #12828 20140106 12:30:37
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaBut if they have no special aptitude for math it is easy to see why they can not give it to their students. 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. #12829 20140107 10:47:04
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhy do you need to have a special aptitude for mathematics to be a good maths teacher? #12830 20140107 10:59:03
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHi; 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. #12831 20140107 11:03:51
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSorry to interject, but when I was in secondary school, we had math and science teachers without A degree. Much less a degree in another related subject. All they did was read directly out of the textbook (which were already pretty bad) and give pointless "book work" to keep us busy. Unbelievably, in 9th standard we were told to sum 1 to 100 to "derive our own formulas" (surprisingly, the teacher didn't know who Gauss was ). I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. Archimedes Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.  Neumann #12832 20140107 11:10:10
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSounds similar to my observations. They made poor teachers did they not? It was not their fault either, I mean math is highly specialized subject. 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. #12833 20140107 11:12:02
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaBut nonetheless, you would expect a teacher to have a teaching degree? I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. Archimedes Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.  Neumann #12834 20140107 11:13:53
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYes but I would also expect him to be good at math and to love math. The three things do not necessarily go together. 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. #12835 20140109 00:50:02
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI have also never seen a teacher poor at mathematics be a great teacher (I've seen the opposite countless times though). It might also have something to do with the idea that a teacher who is very confident and passionate about mathematics may be enough to hide his weaknesses. #12836 20140109 12:25:15
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaVery good! let me know how it works out. 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. #12837 20140109 12:26:58
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaShe's a year older than me, haven't seen her about today. I don't think she knows how to cook, maybe I can use that to my advantage. #12838 20140109 12:32:14
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYes, learn how to cook. The best chefs are men pappym used to say. 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. #12839 20140109 12:35:27
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIs that true? I personally prefer Jamie Oliver, he's pretty inspiring. #12840 20140109 12:38:32
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaTo the modern gal cooking is the vast unknown. Of course it will impress her. 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. #12841 20140109 12:58:13
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWell, I have no proof that she doesn't know how to cook  it was sort of a gut feeling. Saw a bag of KFC in the bin, I assume it was hers as I saw everyone else's dinner tonight. For all I know she could be a chef! #12842 20140109 19:45:25
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou will have to play the percentages here. She will be amazed. 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. #12843 20140109 23:03:54
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaStill strange that someone who does no exercise and eats fast food so regularly can have such a nice body. #12844 20140109 23:16:15
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIt is called youth. When you are young your metabolism is fast, meaning it burns a lot of calories per day. Even while sleeping. Also when young the body is very efficient at removing toxins. 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. #12845 20140109 23:57:06
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHmm, that would explain why I have put on a bit of weight since turning 18. #12846 20140110 00:01:09
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWill not begin till she is about 30 to 35. I think that is about usual for 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. #12847 20140110 00:21:27#12848 20140110 00:36:45
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaOh yes, she should enjoy her looks for a while and you can enjoy them too. 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. #12849 20140111 06:04:50
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaShe's very quiet. I rarely see her and I can't hear her in her room, even though she lives right next to me (i.e. sharing the same inchthick wall). #12850 20140111 06:15:54
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou can go knock on her door. 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.
