Re: So this is what was happening
When an extremely talented problem solver who comes in here said something like that I was embarassed because it just ain't so in either case. I really do not care if some female thinks this is false modesty but let me say if you learned anything from me you had better follow Yoda's advice! 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. #28 20120711 04:01:57
Re: So this is what was happeningYou really think you haven't taught me anything?

Re: So this is what was happeningApparently not. 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. #30 20120711 04:04:15
Re: So this is what was happeningHow'd you get to that conclusion?

Re: So this is what was happeningBecause you violate the rule RIPOSTP continuously. You know I like the Discrete better. You did not read post #27. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: So this is what was happeningI did. But who is the extremely talented problem solver.

Re: So this is what was happeningHah! That is proof you did not read the post! 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. #34 20120711 04:23:11

Re: So this is what was happeningNope, you read the first line, began to think about it and never got back to the rest. Your mind is locked in a loop: In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: So this is what was happeningNo, I just found an a undeclared variable and gave an "error message".

Re: So this is what was happeningThat does appear to be a problem with his statement. I meant the alleged mathematics. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: So this is what was happeningI just put it into the computer and let him/her sort it out. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: So this is what was happeningBut we are not allowed computers or calculators on the exam and I really have an issue with that type of problems.

Re: So this is what was happeningIf you can not remember PEMDAS then you can try left to right and be given 75% partial credit for the wrong answer. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: So this is what was happeningBut my parents aren't satisfied with an imperfect score. Math is my only problem. I am very good at most other subjects and I don't want math to be the only problem.

Re: So this is what was happeningWhen anonimnystefy checks in, ask him if he got the point of the post #27. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: So this is what was happeningHmmm. 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. #48 20120711 05:26:39
Re: So this is what was happeningWhich part of it don't you agree with.

It is kaboobly doo. 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. #50 20120711 07:19:08
