 Grim Reaper 17 years ago I got the thing about Poles, but the first one eluded me. # quote
 Anarion 17 years ago Heh heh, I don't know enough about calculus yet either. # quote
 Anonymous1157 17 years ago I think it divided the exponential. But what do I know? I'm only taking Algebra 1. # quote
 Madgamer 17 years ago f(x) would be function but I'm completely clueless/ful about the others.C means constant eh?So function = constant which would make constant function and...Bleh, I don't know any of this stuff, still stuck in crappy Geometry class and I'll have the (O Noes! Teh nightmare!) same teacher when I get into programming class.I'm prolly sure you're smarter than the 70-ish cat lady in my class. # quote

Well, "Maths 2" here literally translates into "Mastery in Arts of Trigonometric and Hell of Statistics" =__=Maths can make you mad in one week. Especially if it's the final exams # quote

Search for it in the Dutch one, if it's there, it'll probably have a link to the English page (and thus, name) in the column at the left. Most of the names are similar anyway. # quote

I dunno about you guys, though. # quote

I dunno about you guys, though.Um, no. Maths (like sciences and actually everything) needs correct terms. If you have to explain what a vector space is every time you need one, we'd never make progress. It's kind of the aim, in that you just label a thing and that everyone knows what it's about, or can do his own research. If I can prove that set X with operations + and . is a vector space, then I can immediately talk about eigenvectors, dual spaces and everything. If I need to explain every time what I'm doing when using eigenvectors, then... No.Note: you are not supposed to understand the above terms, but you are encouraged to do research around them. They are one of the basics of higher maths. # quote
 Anonymous1157 17 years ago You misunderstood me, but what I meant is so obvious that I don't feel like explaining myself. # quote
 E_net4 17 years ago Maths Tests are fun sometimes.My last one (it was about functions) had an exercise with a graphic, which represented the variation of Temperature of a room for 12 hours(8:30-20:30).And so:3.3 In your opinion, does the room have any warming system?At first I though I had to do some weirdo explanations. XD # quote
 LunaticNeko 17 years ago ..... I am speechless... who made that exam?Because if it was here, I would be told to write the equation for the graphs instead, and explain things as "THEY" see fit. # quote

 E_net4 17 years ago And the very problem is that we cannot represent the tiny little part of 9.00000...Even calculators say that 0.99999999=1, but it's not the same method. XD # quote

 E_net4 17 years ago Yes, but as we say 9.999999999999999999... the 9's continue to infinity.So there's no way to show the missing part, and then 9=9, as in, 0.99999999999=1 # quote

 Murska 17 years ago I wonder if my maths teacher would agree on that. Actually, once, in a maths test, I had no idea on the answer of a question, so I input "42". The tests came back, and it read: "Please include the calculations." I had almost full points of it. # quote

 Amarth 17 years ago "Pete" said:/me wonders why no one ever though of using 0.[put infinite zeros here]1...It is mathematically impossible. You cannot end an infinite sequence with a 1, by the very nature of infinite. # quote

 E_net4 17 years ago It never happened to me, either... but I never really had to do that. 42 is the answer! # quote
 Murska 17 years ago If someone asks me what is the difference of 0.999999... and 1, I say him to finish writing all the nines and then I'll answer. # quote
 Pete 17 years ago Infinite is evil. If you let it sneak in once, it assimilates everything. For example: 0[infinite 9s] takes an infinite time to write, infinite time to read, infinite time to understand, the resulting number from10-0[infinite 9s] will be 9.[infinite 0s]1... Yuck! # quote
