If you need help with any homework, especially math, ask me. I'll probably understand it since I'm some kind of smart kid. Plus I got school holidays next week so I won't be very busy.

how did Fermat prove his last theorum?

seriously, thats not a troll


Need help with homework? - jetpi99 - 01-31-2017 10:09 AM

From what I know, he claimed to have proof but such a document was never found. So nobody knows.


RE: Need help with homework? - the Analogist - 02-01-2017 01:44 PM

thing is it has since been proven, but by what rationale did he believe it?


Need help with homework? - jetpi99 - 02-02-2017 07:55 AM

I can't imagine how anyone could find that out. All I know is he mentioned in a margin of a book that he had found proof, but that the proof wouldn't fit the margin. Did a teacher really assign this?


RE: Need help with homework? - the Analogist - 02-03-2017 02:58 PM

no.

Fermat was a hobbyist who was a full-time lawyer. the puzzle confuses me personally. I also wish to strike humility into the hearts of so called math experts because this claim was true, but sat for more than 350 years, surviving that many generations of people good at math.

I propose Fermat was not a "genius" as much as the "experts" are overly trained.

thoughts?

I used to be really interested in math, now it's just another subject that doesn't suck too hard. I'm losing my interest in Science. Kinda sad how you go from curious smart kid to teenager who pretty much doesn't give a damn. Might be, though, that it's just science subjects in school that I'm hating because we are basically learning loads of facts and that's about it. Can't remember anything from Chemistry or Biology that's more than a collection of facts that I could look up in a minute.

wikipedia is better than most of school because you can choose what to look at. its also more reliable than teachers

All day today, about the only thing that I learned that I will ever use in the future was how a relay circuit works. The rest was mostly bullsh*t that I won't remember for long after the exam. We spent half an hour in french imagining the next scene in a book we were reading, and then roleplay it. Nobody cares about this book, by the way. Maybe I'll burn it when we're done with it. I get the feeling our teacher just gives us those bullshit tasks so we're busy. It's kinda sad, the teachers are accepting that all they do is prepare us for the exams. They know we're not really learning, but nobody does anything.

So I've started a group called "The Rebels". At first, the plan was to organise a mass strike, but for now we're only writing a letter to the principal to make it clear that we want change. Also, we're only three people right now, so a strike would be kinda ineffective.

Also, I should maybe start another thread for this since there might still be someone turning to me with homework.

do you like math?

I've always wondered if the three hands of a clock are ever perfectly equa-distant


Need help with homework? - jetpi99 - 02-08-2017 06:53 AM

I like it a bit maybe, but because I'm so good at understanding it I'm always underwhelmed in math class. And the three hands of a clock are equadistant at 08:00:20 if the clock's minute hand only moves after an entire minute has passed.

But seriously, most people will never need anything we "learned" in the last few Years of Math class. I'm going to study informatics, among other things algorithm-scripting, math might come in handy in doing geometry/algebra related algorithms. Sometimes it's interesting to solve those problems, sometimes it's just busywork.

I'm kinda surprised no one has asked for any homework solutions yet. Because I have asperger's, I'm kind of a genius. So I always have to explain everything to the others in my class and I always post homework solutions because I tend to be done much faster than all the others. Two weeks back, my entire grade (about 15 classes/300 students) had to do project work: We had to learn how to use ARCGIS, a map software to process maps and geographical data and visualize these data. We were supposed to upload a pdf file once we were finished to prove that we did it. So all people from my class come to me asking me to explain it to them, guys from other classes I know ask for help, I'm even approached by some girls I don't know at all and they ask me if I'm that one computer freak/genius. In the end, I just took my map file, moved some visual elements, changed colors and wrote the other names on it, made a pdf and sent it to everyone who wanted it. I saved about 40 people from wasting 3 hours on shit that they would never use, and I needed about 2 minutes per pdf. Now some people are really fucking grateful and really fucking impressed.

I've got to ask, what grade or year are you in? Or are you already done with school? (Although there wouldn't be that many reasons why you'd stick around on these forums.)


Need help with homework? - jetpi99 - 02-08-2017 10:07 PM

I live in switzerland, so things are a bit different. I'm in the third grade of canton school. Canton school has 4 grades and typically lasts from about age 15-19. It's the highest secondary school in switzerland and you need to finish it to obtain a maturity degree. A maturity degree is necessary for attending a university.


Need help with homework? - Lady A - 02-09-2017 07:58 AM

That's actually extremely interesting to hear! I should really do my research on the different school systems around the world. It'd be nice to see how places differ and what actually works and what doesn't.


Need help with homework? - Lady A - 02-18-2017 10:12 AM

Do you happen to know anything about trig or geometry?


Need help with homework? - jetpi99 - 02-18-2017 07:28 PM

A lot, actually. Trigonometry is pretty easy and I think I know pretty much all about it. Geometry is a much wider area, but I know quite some things about it.


RE: Need help with homework? - the Analogist - 02-19-2017 02:17 AM

i wonder is liking a subject is the same as not being disappointed with your grades.

I wouldn't really say I like my job, but I'm getting to the point where I'm good at it so its not a struggle. it feels similar. a source of pride, but I would rather get the same benefits from doing something else, but I can't, so I don't.
