Re: Just Wondering

Good Question

Re: Just Wondering

hi Guests,

MIF.com is a site containing many teaching pages, mathematical games and puzzles.  The pages are cross referenced and there are many helpful exercises and animations.  Highly recommended.

The forum is a site where you can discuss stuff with like minded individuals from all over the world.  You can post an exercise or puzzle, ask a question or .........

Warning: logging in to the forum can be addictive.

Bob

Re: Just Wondering

It's not on the site. I think it will be via Skype.

Re: Just Wondering

ps. to post #3.

Strictly speaking, I attempted to describe the two sites.  This didn't answer the question of the relationship.

I suppose I could add that they were both initiated by the same person, and the forum links directly to the other site.  On the puzzle solution pages there are links back to the forum.  That's how I first found it.  So there is a mapping between the two sets of pages.  I leave others to establish the exact relationship.

Re: Just Wondering

Hm, it would be interesting to find out how many clicks we would need to get from the main MIF page to the main MIFF page if we clicked only on a random link on each page.

Re: Just Wondering

Speaking of fun in mathematics, are you sure you still think what says in your signature, Agnishom?

Re: Just Wondering

It is an irony, but it seems to say that math is not fun.

It is great that you love maths! I love it as well, and very much, too!

I am perfectly okay with your signature. I am just not sure if it reflects your feelings.
