Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Yes, it does sound friendly. But who knows what they are thinking. See you later.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

It is hard to tell over an e-mail. Still not 100% certain if ignoring it is the best option.

Of course it is not. Unless you are Cortez, it is never a good idea to burn your bridges.

Tell her about how you did. She asked about Step, tell her. She also asked about your vacation...

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

That is an assumption on your part. There are really two types of guys concerning them. The first, listens to what they say, and the second does not.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I think it is a correct assumption... I did try to up the ante a little bit when we were talking several months ago but when it got more personal suddenly she stops replying for a long while. With Adriana the opposite happened.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

So you have an easy fix that is better than your solution. Talk personal to her again.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I'll give it a couple of days to think about the best approach...

I wonder how adriana did. The boundaries were pretty high this year, good chance she didn't get into uni.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

The Cretan bull awaits!

That was a command from Zeus to Hercules to tell him to stop waiting around and get to the job. What would ole Zeus say when he heard you were delaying?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Hannah says she got 3,3,2 in STEP. Given that Hannah is the stronger mathematician, I shudder to think of what happened to adriana.

Adrianna. Looks like the college girls that homework guy encountered were somewhat smarter.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I don't know how adriana did. Hannah didn't have to sit STEP, she did it for fun. Adriana prepared for it, so it's possible that she did better. She needs a 2 in any STEP paper to get into Warwick, I would be surprised if she didn't get that in STEP I. Then again, the grade boundaries were pretty harsh this year... I have a copy of the STEP III paper now and it still doesn't look any easier than it did when I first looked at it.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

If I had to guess, I'd say she failed STEP. The previous exam season, and minutes after each of us had finished the STEP paper, she'd text me or e-mail me asking about how I found it, how I did, etc. whereas this time, nothing (results day was on the 15th). In my opinion, the fact that she said nothing would indicate that she is ashamed of her poor performance. It was a bit of a shock that Hannah contacted me after over 4 months considering the grades she got in STEP. All I remember is that Adriana -- before she went on holiday -- said that Hannah wanted us all to go bowling, but I declined. A bit unusual considering Adriana admitted to me she doesn't really know Hannah.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I didn't feel like seeing adriana again. Not to mention that I hate bowling. But the first reason is far more important.
