I have heard of him and the book you are talking about.

I have a chore, see you later.

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.

I think he's the youngest winner of each of the IMO medals, won a Fields medal too.

24 days since I've heard from adriana. Only 2 days to go until the record is broken!

Hi;

Looks like this will be a busy day. Have an appointment in the afternoon. What happened for you?

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I have got the first 600 words memorised out of 2000 or so... shouldn't have left it so late.

I want to buy refreshments so people aren't too bored (the school said I might get reimbursed the money). I was thinking of buying apples (Newton) and Leibniz biscuits...

Biscuits? I do not know that one. Why the biscuits?

The biscuits are called Choco-Leibniz biscuits which were named after Gottfried Leibniz.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

They were produced in 1891, long after Leibniz's death. But the company, Bahlsen, are based in Hanover, so they named them Choco-Leibniz biscuits because Leibniz was one of the more famous residents of Hanover. They are common over here, albeit expensive, and you only get 8 of them in a packet. Very tasty though, I'm sure PJ will love them. (She said the only thing she knows about Newton and Leibniz are apples and biscuits, respectively...)

I did not know that. I have never seen them over here.

Time for the appointment, see you later. I could use some of those biscuits.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

What was it an appointment for? The dentist?

Did the presentation an hour ago. I personally think I didn't perform well, I improvised the whole thing thanks to forgetting my lines... but I was shocked. Everyone loved it. People said it inspired them. I heard people discussing who they thought invented calculus. I thought only 3-5 people would turn up. When I got there there was a queue of like 20 people saying they were waiting for a maths lecture. They gobbled up all my refreshments. And no one asked any hard questions!

Sometimes negative thoughts like that are untrue.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

A young guy?

I paused for almost 10-15 seconds in the beginning -- I forgot my lines completely so I made some stuff up on the spot and just spouted stuff I knew about Leibniz or Newton. I don't understand how I can be a good public speaker... I won awards for it and I don't even know how, it sounds rubbish to me.
