Re: A few maths games I have made to help my pupilsYou listen to the nooze, while we listen to the nyuse. The two versions are equally depressing.

Re: A few maths games I have made to help my pupilsOur nooze is not depressing to me because I do not believe a word of it. 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. #53 20110312 21:41:37
Re: A few maths games I have made to help my pupilsI don't believe it all either. Much of it stems from media mogul greed. "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #54 20110312 21:52:20
Re: A few maths games I have made to help my pupilsAbout 1 time in 3 they actually get some of the facts right. Then comes their interpretation of it. That is when I tune out.

Re: A few maths games I have made to help my pupilsHow's that? "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #56 20110312 22:07:10
Re: A few maths games I have made to help my pupilsSupposing it would hit mainland Japan. 8.9 would have caused a lot more damage. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: A few maths games I have made to help my pupilsI think that would be right. Christchurch's recent 6.3 earthquake was much smaller than Japan's, but it was direct and caused a huge amount of innercity structural damage and loss of life through building collapse. In the much more heavily populated cities of Japan a direct 8.9 earthquake would have been utterly devastating. "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do.

Re: A few maths games I have made to help my pupilsI would take a peaceful day over a tsunami anytime. I was thinking Tokyo is massively populated. Full of tall buildings. I think a quake that size there might have killed thousands of people maybe more. I am not saying they are lucky but maybe they dodged a bullet. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Do you pronounce the verb and noun of "sense" the same, Bobby? "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #60 20110313 00:33:39

Re: A few maths games I have made to help my pupilsLiving in Yorkshire I often have debates on the pronunciation of the word 'scone'. I'm in the 'bone' camp while others say it like 'gone'. #64 20110313 01:06:50

Re: A few maths games I have made to help my pupilsOk, I've spent (some might say wasted? ) the weekend learning the basics of PHP and MySQL and made a very simple game with an even simpler high score table. #70 20110314 00:36:16

Re: A few maths games I have made to help my pupilsI just realised my huge error, the score is meant to reset to zero once the timer runs out! No wonder you scored so much! #74 20110314 01:15:21
