Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.

Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I wanna talk about some math. Math is fucking awesome.

Maybe you didn't like math in school. That's cool, because there, math was all tangled up with

For example, if you measure something (anything, really, like the length of a river, or the frequency of a tone, or some dude's income over a year,

Let's talk about crazy math!

you're = you are

your = belonging to you

their = belonging to them

there = not here

they're = they are

your = belonging to you

their = belonging to them

there = not here

they're = they are

rather than actually learning the formulas for all the new stuff i was supposed to learn, i basically derived it all from scratch come the day of the test

i am a terrible math person

But they are forming a trefoil, which is knot theory, which is math.

Also, they have a quarter-twist, making them a variety of Moebius strip, so more math.

That's two maths to your one technology. Math wins, because 2>1.

There's another math.

their = belonging to them

whooops

restate my assumptions: 1. Mathematics is the language of nature. 2. Everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers. 3. If you graph these numbers, patterns emerge. Therefore: There are patterns everywhere in nature.

Perform the quadratic formula and get the two X-intercepts plus the vertex in less than thirty lines?

they don't let you do that anymore

Yeah well try typing with just your maths, see how far you get!

Yeah, told you.

i used to get yelled at in math class because i always found the easiest way to do things and would get most of it down in 4-5 lines (i skipped a lot of writing because of this method) and i got F's all the time because i arrived at the answer "in the wrong way"

Nine Thirteen, Personal note:When I was a little kid, my mother told me not to stare into the sun - so once when I was six, I did. The doctors didn't know if my eyes would ever heal. I was terrified, alone in that darkness. Slowly, daylight crept in through the bandages, and I could see. But something else had changed inside me. That day I had my first headache.this is my first year and I am excited

ssounds like my highschool

fuck that shit

"Why didn't you show your work Alex?"

"Because I didn't need to? Here, let me demonstrate so you don't think I'm cheating."

"Sorry, I can't pass you."

But we can never really teach them to love.

And thats where math fails.

here's the kicker.

she only assigned us even numbers.

i got up on the board and did it all on the board and i was like "see?"

"yeah but you need to show your work"

I'm like "here you go," *did it all and showed my work* "only difference there is it took about 3x the time"

i am weird with math. i don't solve problems like normal people would i break it up in my head and solve it without even realizing what I'm doing half the time. when i slow down i drop numbers off all the time.

when we had started a new unit our teacher didn't explain the formula and wanted to see if anyone could solve it as a fun game.

i got the answer in 5 seconds and couldn't explain how I'd done it

she thought i used one of my friends in an earlier class

it took 15 minutes for me to work out how I'd done it

This.

For most of algebra I was able to infer the answer with no or little actual written work.

Holy shit geometry kicked my ass though.

I'd get a 50% or a 75% on every test I did in that class.

Because it was half off for not knowing the name of the theorum used to solve the problems.

A fucking vocabulary test during geometry class.

But I remember it being pretty satisfying to be able to see my own progress as I learned trig and calculus.

I also believe it got me a better scholarship than I would have gotten otherwise, due to the recommendation of my math teacher.

There are some bits of knowledge I've lost and haven't used in a long time that I wouldn't mind relearning.

Like derivatives and whatnot.

nobody

careshow easy it is for you to do problems in your head; to be a mathematician you have toshow your fucking workseriously, this is like taking an english class, only writing introduction and conclusion paragraphs on essays, and then whining when the teacher fails you

trig and algebra are related nicely

sin and cos are represented by equations that use the numbers e and i

therefore tan cot and sec and csc and coth and sinh and cosh and tanh all have algebraic representations

h5 that's what i ended up doing

I'd write my 3-7 lines then just add simple math in the margins above it. easy things like 19x5=95

to be a mathematician you have to

prove your fucking workNow, I had one that was actually pragmatic with working out shit, my algebra 2 teacher. You showed your work, you could get partial credit (cause she could see were you done fucked up). You don't, you either got all or none.

Course when I got to calculus in college, all the work had to be correct or you'd get points off. And I got a D. Fuck Calculus, the only thing that came from it is that I can kinda understand some more xkcd comics than normal people.
