Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaTell her to drink the alcohol instead. 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. #11577 20130627 00:10:58
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaAllergies annoyed me more than anything. I sneezed all over my paper, almost choked on my own mucus. Lost a bit of time as a result. But it's all over now! #11578 20130627 00:13:54
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThose STEP questions were very tough. You have plenty of time to lead a full and great life. 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. #11579 20130627 21:01:49
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI am very much looking forward to university... but at the same time it feels sad. I spent so much time doing 400 STEP questions... every day this year was spent doing that. Now that it is over, it feels like I am free but I still want to do intensive mathematics! #11580 20130627 21:06:03
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSo what is stopping you? I presume you like some branches more than others. Dig right in! 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. #11581 20130627 21:09:09
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI just don't want to burn myself out before uni starts... #11582 20130627 21:11:38
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI thought you said she needs to drown her tears in alcohol. I then suggested that she drink it instead. 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. #11583 20130627 21:16:25
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat was Hanh. Hannah is adriana's friend. #11584 20130627 21:18:22
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSorry, I got confused. I remember her now. I would say you are long overdue on moving in on that one. 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. #11585 20130627 21:19:59
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI don't feel like moving in on any girls this summer, though... #11586 20130627 21:21:36
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaBut you did bring her up out of the clear blue sky... 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. #11587 20130627 21:31:06
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI'm not interested in pursuing though, just to talk to people. I've gone off women for a while. #11588 20130627 21:35:30
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSounds like you will be drinking some of that alcohol with that attitude. Email her if you want to talk to her. They love to talk. Of course, it will be about their new purse, the nail they broke, Brad Pitt or some other useless hunk... 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. #11589 20130627 23:01:11
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIf it gets boring or most of the conversation ends up revolving around her, then I'll just ignore her. I think a combination of exam stress, hayfever and boredom with women has led me to not feel like pursuing them  perhaps the recharging process will require some passive mathematics and talking to them. #11590 20130628 01:39:50
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaPassive mathematics? You must be talking about Group Theory. 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. #11591 20130628 02:18:25
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI meant, learning mathematics but not at fullintensity. #11592 20130628 02:20:18
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou will have to pick something to start with. 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. #11593 20130628 02:42:50
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaUCL have given me a reading list, and also some problems to solve, but the problems seem pretty easy... just practicing Alevel material it looks like. The Mathematical Methods module seems easier than STEP! #11594 20130628 02:44:28
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou can always hunt down stuff on the internet. 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. #11595 20130628 02:45:12#11596 20130628 02:46:13
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThe way it is taught and what they concentrate on, I would say extremely boring. 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. #11597 20130628 02:55:30
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhat parts did you find most interesting/juicy? #11598 20130628 03:01:42
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI always liked integration and infinite series. I found the proving that a series converges to be boring and unimaginative. I got into Numerical analysis because I was interested in finding what the sum converged to not just whether it converged or not. 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. #11599 20130628 05:48:07
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI like integration and series too. I don't really have much experience with a CAS but I find them pretty fun to manipulate. There was a pretty interesting series in my STEP III paper that was pretty darn hard. The problemsolving aspect of it is what I like best... have you seen the I + J integration trick? It seems almost trivial but it blew my mind that you could solve an integral that way. #11600 20130628 07:29:50
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI do not recognize it from the name. Could you describe 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.
