A Mathametical SpeechThere is going to be a competition held where (probably) I am going to participate. Here, the participants would have to give a speech of around 5 minutes about a Mathematical Topic that is going to be delivered on the spot. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #2 20120718 22:35:21
Re: A Mathametical SpeechHi Agnishom; 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. #3 20120718 23:17:55
Re: A Mathametical SpeechHmm............... May be I will go for Probablity 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #4 20120718 23:20:47
Re: A Mathametical Speechhi Agnishom, You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #5 20120718 23:43:35
Re: A Mathametical SpeechYes That's very true 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #6 20120719 00:33:51
Re: A Mathametical SpeechSo if you get chosen, you'll need to practise something else = how to deliver a good speech (on anything). You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #7 20120719 14:20:42
Re: A Mathametical SpeechNo everyone doesn't get the same topic and the topic is given there just 15 minutes before the speech. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?'

Re: A Mathametical SpeechHhhmmm. That's a tough challenge. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #9 20120719 20:02:26
Re: A Mathametical SpeechHi;
Yikes! That is nasty. 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. #10 20120720 00:44:28

Re: A Mathametical Speechhi Agnishom,
Is this a complete list? You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #12 20120720 03:43:59

Re: A Mathametical Speech
No it isn't but the other topics aren't very interesting 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #14 20120723 22:33:21
Re: A Mathametical SpeechTomorrow We have the final elimination in the school. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: A Mathametical SpeechWell, statistics is greatly tied to probability. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #16 20120724 01:32:25

Re: A Mathametical SpeechOK I am not disturbed at all 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'
