Speed MathHave a go: Speed Math "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20061204 16:17:49
Re: Speed MathGood idea! I'll post my scores when I get on another computer than this laptop (bad mouse, bad scores) #3 20061204 16:47:56

Re: Speed Math
Of the "add 2" ? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #5 20061204 18:18:55
Re: Speed MathVery nice. I see no bugs, and t his would be very useful for children and teachers. #6 20061204 18:25:46
Re: Speed MathBug: "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #7 20061204 21:43:57
Re: Speed MathGood find. I will look into it. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #8 20061204 22:01:46
Re: Speed Math
0.782 (Edit: In Add 2, that is.) Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #9 20061205 03:46:10

Re: Speed Mathmathsy: what is an "elegant" way of showing (a+b) x (c+d) ? Maybe put a box under each one? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #12 20061205 08:39:24
Re: Speed MathLet's just assume these scores are all Add 2 because that seems to be the default. #13 20061205 10:38:27
Re: Speed MathUpdate: Changed "Multiply 2" to "1 Times 1", etc to hopefully make it clearer. May have made it more confusing though. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #14 20061205 10:53:29
Re: Speed MathI tried out Ricky's fast click bug, and I couldn't get it to work, so that presumably means it's been fixed. I found one of my own though. If you click on one of the answers, then move the mouse of the answer with the button still held down, then the answer will stay highlighted when you unclick. It's fairly trivial though, and it doesn't affect gameplay. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #15 20061208 19:55:17
