Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhat?! Are you joking? You mean, I am going to have this for the rest of my life? #9202 20130317 12:02:21
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIt may stay with you in one form or another. We have to pay for every moment of joy with a year of pain. 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. #9203 20130317 21:44:15#9204 20130317 21:56:14
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaJust think of it like this. After your twenties, it is all downhill. 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. #9205 20130317 22:13:08
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThankfully I am only 18; just over halfway past the good parts? #9206 20130317 22:28:52
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou wish to see it go that fast? To age and grow old and possibly ill? To die? 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. #9207 20130317 22:35:45
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaNo, I would like to stay young a little longer, with fewer responsibilities. #9208 20130317 22:36:48
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHmmm, that you can only do in your mind. Consider that the next 10  12 years will be a blur. 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. #9209 20130317 22:48:29
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIt seems like a long time but I know it will not be... #9210 20130317 22:53:02
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaA blink of an eye best describes it. 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. #9211 20130317 22:58:53
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThis year is going by pretty quickly. Hard to believe we are in March already... #9212 20130317 23:05:07
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhat does she 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. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #9213 20130317 23:07:13
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWe've stopped now, it was just about maths, what unis she's applying to, etc. and a comment my chemistry teacher made that maths is just a bunch of assumptions. #9214 20130317 23:13:22
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHmmmm, he is being a little on the vague side. The axioms can be viewed like that but math is also built up from theorems. 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. #9215 20130317 23:18:56
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHe was just looking for a way to rubbish maths again. #9216 20130317 23:31:22
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI take it he is not a fan of 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. #9217 20130317 23:34:13
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaNo one is a fan of mathematics at my school. #9218 20130317 23:39:12
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhy is that? 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. #9219 20130317 23:39:58#9220 20130317 23:44:26
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaDo they teach it well enough or is it poorly taught over there? 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. #9221 20130317 23:58:54
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaMy school is not that good, the teachers do not teach it well. They just copy an example from the textbook on to the board and then tell them to do the rest of the exercise. #9222 20130318 00:03:48
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaOver here they have done an excellent job in convincing everyone not to learn any. People from all over the world have a hard time adding two numbers. 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. #9223 20130318 00:09:27
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIt has come to the stage where you are expected to be bad at it. Some people are proud of it! Pathetic maths, won't ever do anything for anybody. Especially when there are more important things to worry about like politics, football and Katie Price. Maths is a nonfactor, should be disbanded what a joke. #9224 20130318 00:15:11
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat is pretty much the policy over here, except they beat kids who are stupid enough to carry math books or any book for that matter. 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. #9225 20130318 00:20:50
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHmm, they don't beat them over here, they seem to take no real notice...
