Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaNope. It is very tough and weird. 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. #11378 20130610 07:57:14#11379 20130610 08:06:59
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaGood luck, if you do you can explain it to me. 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. #11380 20130610 08:54:35
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI got only to the first fifth of the third chapter, plus the really useful bit on snake oil method.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSnake oil method? Well that's a phrase I never thought I'd hear in a mathematical context...! #11382 20130610 08:57:44
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaMy brother is a big fan of his snake oil method. There is useful stuff on asymptotics or maybe I am thinking of A=B. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula
The way an experimental mathematician like Herbie worked is well described by that.
That is the meat of their idea. 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. #11385 20130610 09:07:40

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThe definitively good book on gf's has not been written yet. After the Tucker book you have to scrounge around for additional ideas.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaPhew, 2 exams down, 7 to go... #11388 20130615 01:38:50
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHow did you do? 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. #11389 20130615 01:44:21
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI thought I did well, but you never know... #11390 20130615 01:51:17
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaAs long as it did not bother you... Let them whine and whine some more. 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. #11391 20130615 02:03:29
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThe whining is irritating though, they are acting like it is the end of the world... with all due respect to them, that is just what happens if you only prepare for an easy paper. #11392 20130615 02:07:49
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI agree, listening to the crying makes my back hurt even more. There was a guy on another forum crying over the beatings he got when he was 8. He is 50 now and still sobbing. Turns out he got smacked on the knuckles with a thin ruler and he calls that a beating? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIsn't that a bit different? A thin metal ruler could probably cut... #11394 20130615 02:19:49
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYes, I am sure he is cut and probably he can not play the piano and wants to sue for 450 million dollars. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI hate to admit it but the education reformists must be loving this... #11396 20130615 20:02:48
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhat do they want to reform? The system? The test? The students? The teachers? The cuisine? 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. #11397 20130615 20:09:19
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThe reforming has already started. Currently, 47% of students here achieve an A in Alevel Maths, and there is evidence to suggest that the exams have been getting easier (grade inflation). So Michael Gove, the secretary of state for education, has banned exams from being taken in January, and also wants to stop students from being able to resit a paper. He is aiming to do away with the modular system, and lump everything into one final exam at the end of 2 years (like how it used to be). #11398 20130615 20:14:18
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSo he seeks to have less people get an A? This jumping up and down on standards is also unfair. Plenty of people here complain that if they would have taken their tests 3 years ago or 3 years hence they would do much better. This is due to the seesawing of testing. One guy gets in and thinks it is too tough, the next it is too soft. 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 FormulaYes  I am in favour of some of his 'reforms' but I am still fundamentally against the implementation, which is the reason he is disliked. We haven't had such big changes in about 30 years  GCSEs are being replaced now!! #11400 20130615 22:20:24
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaDo you think that system has produced high quality people? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
