Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI was about to cringe until my supervisor said "well, I don't know whether I should give you 49/50, or 50/50". Obviously I was over the moon when he said that! #10877 20130515 05:39:01
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWas it an accident or did you do it intentionally? 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. #10878 20130515 05:45:26
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaTo my knowledge, I don't think I've plagiarised anything from a skimread. If there were any quotes from books or articles I named the source, but I could have overlooked something. #10879 20130515 05:48:57
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaDoesn't plagiarized mean in this context that you stole someone's work and called it your own? 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. #10880 20130515 05:51:39
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThe issue is whether or not I have sourced every single bit of information I have found. I am sure pretty much all of it was written with my own words  in fact, for the bulk of the project, I just wrote out large bits myself, then just looked for sources that backed up my arguments (the reverse of what people normally do). #10881 20130515 05:53:12
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaListen, you are worrying over nothing. You did the best you could? 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. #10882 20130515 05:58:02
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI definitely didn't do my best  sure I put in a lot of effort, but I crammed what was supposed to be work done over 6 months into about 1 week. It's not like it was difficult or anything though, all I had to produce was #10883 20130515 06:11:21
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThere you go again, being your own worst enemy. Feeling guilty over something, or trying to find something wrong. That is the way that guy is... 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. #10884 20130515 06:12:03#10885 20130515 06:13:30
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaDefense? How can second guessing work you already did help. Shouldn't he have been opening his big mouth when you were writing 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. #10886 20130515 06:24:50
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHe did try, at many points I wanted to quit and even started writing an email to my supervisor telling me I wanted to quit the project. I was only one click away from sending that until I stopped myself. #10887 20130515 06:25:18
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhy did you stop yourself? 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. #10888 20130515 06:26:35
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaBecause I told myself that I would find a way. #10889 20130515 06:27:06
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaA way for what? 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. #10890 20130515 06:29:02
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaA way to finish it. So instead of sending that and going to bed I popped the kettle on and got to work at 1 AM. #10891 20130515 06:32:02
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat is not what I meant, why did you want to finish 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. #10892 20130515 06:33:13
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI didn't want to be known as a quitter and I fancied getting an extra A* grade. #10893 20130515 06:37:16
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSo your sin was one of pride? It was only for the sake of ego? 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. #10894 20130515 06:42:57
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI guess. When I was doing my GCSEs two years ago, I was in this same scenario, left everything to the last minute, ended up getting a U in both pieces of coursework bringing my grades down. That happened because I quit. I said to myself that I didn't want that to happen again, because I had already worked hard on the project, why quit and get a U again when it would be a fairer reward to get a high grade? #10895 20130515 06:52:08
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou lazy???? Hahahahahahhahhhooohooo, cmon, that is like saying Arnold "duh guverna" Schwarzeneggar is a woman in disguise. 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. #10896 20130515 06:57:23
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhy is it hard to believe that I could be lazy...? #10897 20130515 06:59:14
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaFor the same reason with Arnie, it just does not fit. I am sure you think you are lazy but you can not convince me of 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. #10898 20130515 07:24:59
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWell, at least I know that there are people lazier than me, which they are paying the price for  literally. #10899 20130515 07:38:08
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHeck, they are gazillions lazier than you. 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. #10900 20130515 07:40:11
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWe still talk via email every day (or every few days), but she seems really awkward about seeing me in person. In assembly yesterday I was sitting behind her. She turns round, sees me and immediately turns back round, without saying anything. But on email she's so nice and doesn't mention it.
