My Maths Project and MIF

Am I allowed to copy some of the pictures from Math Is Fun for my Mathematics Project if I acknowledge it properly?

Re: My Maths Project and MIF

I believe so. MIF would like 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.

Re: My Maths Project and MIF

May I acknowledge to you and a few member(s) here for helping me to solve my trig problems?

Re: My Maths Project and MIF

You can acknowledge all the members you like who have helped you. You can also leave me out as a favor to me.

Re: My Maths Project and MIF

My head is already large enough. It is so big in fact that I now have trouble coming and going to the store. You may leave me out from the acknowledgement but I hope that before I am through I will have convinced you and anonimnystefy of certain techniques. This will be a far greater monument to me than any award or plaque or acknowledgement. And my head has got bigger!

No, ego as your people call it and pride as we call it is the severest obstacle a man can face to his advancement.

Re: My Maths Project and MIF

One can cut down his ego simply by looking at the huge lot of problems he can't solve. When I do that, I feel very very weak and dejected sad

Re: My Maths Project and MIF

That is very good. I do that everyday. But you must always strike a balance,

Overconfidence is a serious weakness but lack of confidence is death.

From the teachings of the Awakened One:

There is no point in saying that one should not doubt or one should believe. Just to say ‘I believe’ does not mean that you understand and see. When a student works on a mathematical problem, he comes to a stage beyond which he does not know how to proceed, and where he is in doubt and perplexity. As long as he has this doubt, he cannot proceed. If he wants to proceed, he must resolve this doubt. And there are ways of resolving that doubt. Just to say ‘I believe’, or, ‘I do not doubt’ will certainly not solve the problem. To force oneself to believe and to accept a thing without understanding is political, and not spiritual or intellectual.

It is also equally undeniable that there must be doubt as long as one does not understand or see clearly. But in order to progress further it is absolutely necessary to get rid of doubt. To get rid of doubt one has to see clearly.

No, the greatest m was pappym. A moral and good man. Had he got an education he would have far exceeded me. He is the real Abraham Lincoln.

The guy I was talking about in the quote was Guatama Buddha.

Thanks.

But why do you think that someone has written it with his/her hand?

I do not assume that. But that does not mean that it is not beautiful.
