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. #6652 20130115 23:47:59
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIt is possibly worse. Although the media really hype up Oxford and Cambridge as if they're the only unis in Britain. Honest question... have you heard of any of these unis: UCL, Imperial, Warwick, Bristol, Durham, LSE, Bath, St. Andrews, King's College London? Just out of interest. #6653 20130116 00:02:46

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI am surprised you have never heard of UCL (University College London) or Imperial College. Imperial especially as they are considered to be the best behind Oxbridge. But I am not going to Imperial because I think they are also too elitist and the STEM environment is a bit depressing in my opinion. They might be the best but there is a reason they have the lowest student satisfaction of all the top unis. #6655 20130116 00:15:12
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI only know what I read about your country. Probably all incorrect too. I have met alot of British people since I became a member.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI don't think I can ask both Hannah and adriana out. I have to pick one. They are best friends, it seems that whenever I tell one something, the other knows about it within 5 minutes. #6657 20130116 00:20:47

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula
I like UCL because you are not constantly under pressure to work like you are at Imperial or Cambridge. It is also only a 20 minute bus ride away from where I live. I think halls of residence can halt one's maturity, particularly because at somewhere like Cambridge you don't really have to learn to cook for yourself or learn how to budget, etc. whereas if I went to UCL, I'd be living in my own accommodation and be pretty independent. Even though Imperial is what everyone recommends to me, I just don't like them; the rooms feel boring and claustrophobic, and the staff don't seem nice at all. I think I am more of a city person; I can appreciate the countryside, but there are lots of places in London I like to go to as well. And the added benefit is that if anything goes wrong, my family will not be far away, and that kind of support for the next 3 years is reassuring for me. #6659 20130116 00:28:24#6660 20130116 00:33:40
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula
Some unis still offer UCAS points, but none of my choices do; the reason it doesn't happen anymore is because they just make alternative offers instead. For example, if a uni made an offer of 360 UCAS points, that could be met like this: #6661 20130116 00:53:00
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaExcellent! I knew you had taken some As already but I hadn't realised you had 3 A* grades. That's fantastic, well done. You certainly deserved it after all the hours you put in studying! Cambridge must be mad to turn you down. What were they thinking of?!

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula
Thanks! The reason was because of these three results: #6663 20130116 03:07:59

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYes, but about what? Is she still putting mathematicians down? 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. #6665 20130116 03:12:04
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaNot at the moment. Although she hasn't put them down for a while now. #6666 20130116 03:14:42
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhat is wrong with that? Sounds like a compliment. You have two possible replies, both of them good. 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.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhat did you 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.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI commented on another question, and I asked her when her last exam was. #6670 20130116 03:25:13
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHmmmm, I think I would have used a little more right there... In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaTwo ways to accept a compliment, both confuse women. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula
Hmm. I did #1 in my reply. In fact I usually do #1. (Although honestly I don't think my answer in the exam was correct.) #6674 20130116 03:35:45
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI got a reply from adriana too. #6675 20130116 03:37:48
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHumility is good as long as it is false. Whatever you do no real humility, they do not understand it. When you run into Buddha or Newton then you can show your humility, but never, never around girls. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
