Re: What do you think?I am not able to draw any generalized conclusions, but I think I sorta get the point. 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 #1927 20121105 10:45:41
Re: What do you think?Then you are not getting the point yet.
Same point! But what does it mean when we are talking about problem solving in mathematics. 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. #1928 20121105 10:48:37

Re: What do you think?Nope, learning different ones from what everyone is taught and learns. Back engineering from solution to method to question is one tool. We do not work front to back as they do. We work back to middle, front to middle, middle to front, any way that solves the problem. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: What do you think?Let me guess, that was a wild guess to see if I have the answer yet or not.
