    Just my teacher had notes on Aristotle & Plato on a slide show and I've got 5 pages of notes on the prime mover and Aristotle's philosophy. She said she had to read about it a few times to understand and we'll probably have to do the same. I understand the basic idea of it but it's a lot to take in so this weekend I'm going to try write some of my own notes to help me understand it better
    What are the notes about?

    am i the only one without much of a workload and also not really feeling a big jump?
    I feel the same at the moment, I've had one piece of homework in each subject and they're quite short. C1,S1 and Physics so far have just been GCSE stuff. German, we've done no work, just been given textbooks, etc. Chem is the only subject where I've learnt anything new, and that wasn't particularly hard. I'm not sure if they were just being nice as it was the first week

    My Maths lesson today was very boring at times because as my teacher was going through the homework they were going at a snails pace-I have never seen anyone go through maths problems any slower I mean He was saying stuff like "1 times x equals x" and putting 1s in front of every expression like xy or x or y and putting 1s onto the power of x to make it x^1 etc.

    I know it's probably been asked before, but does anyone know the best (free) Organiser app where I can insert timetable, homeworks for these etc. Can be IOS or android.
    I just did a quick android store search and found school schedule deluxe, it looks pretty good except due to all the information you need to enter (50 lesson periods, teachers, subjects) I started entering the details in, and on the first period I lost interest

    Guys you are all making me want to cry by saying how big the jump is, im so scared for when I start on Monday
    You're probably more capable than you think but are just feeling a bit nervous, and you're here right? That itself shows interest in your education, you'll be fine!

    Just finished watching ITV's documentary on Brian Clough that they aired a few years ago... Don't even know why I was watching it, but it was pretty damn good.

    Fish, I know you're here somewhere. HL Maths has already ruined me.

    Even the year 13 Further Maths people couldn't really help me with my homework.

    Here's a question from it:

    z^2=9i

    Express this in the form x+iy or something... good luck.

    One of my teachers today was telling me how disappointed school were with my year's results today, clearly I'm not part of a clever year group

    Temperatures reached 117 degrees Celsius in London yesterday, as temperatures in the heatwave in London rocketed further that is expected to last for the next 2-3 weeks.I wonder whether the temperature rose further today.The extreme temperatures recorded on Fenchurch Street are expected to occur for the next 2-3 weeks so get down London if you love hot weather because its hotter than a sauna.

    The weather fluctuates way too much, this morning it was raining and you could see your breath, by the end of the day I was sweating.

    You mentioned that program and it reminded me of a car video watch it, i'd like to see what you think. Note that the male voice is Artyon Senna, voted as one of the greatest F1 drivers of all time and the last fatality in the sport (note the references from the female voice).

    We're doing about Plato first too. I'm loving it but maybe that has something to do with my teacher being amazing:cute:

    With some subjects - like geography and maths - I can see what you're saying, but I suppose they're breaking us in gently. Biology, on the other hand, did not break us in. At all. Though thankfully what we're studying isn't too bad, and it is actually really interesting.

    z^2=9i z=(9i)^0.5 e^0.5(ln9i)=z
    if e^ix=i then cosx=0 and sinx=1 so x=pi/2 ln9i=ln9+lni=ln9+pi/2
    e^0.5(ln9+pi/2)=z=e^0.5ln9e^pi/4=(9^0.5)e^pi/4=3(sqrt(0.5)+isqrt(0.5)) because both cospi/4 and sinpi/4 equal sqrt(0.5) remember -3(sqrt(0.5)+isqrt(0.5)) is also a solution and sqrt(0.5) is normally wrote 1/sqrt(2)

    yeah but i still want to do well in physics and m1 would help, s1 doesn't really help with anything im doing. i might just take m1 externally this year as well instead of next year, doing 4 modules this year if i can cope
    Yeah, that's a good idea, but you might want to a) check with the exams office at your college first and b) give it a month to see how you're coping with the workload.

    Genuinely thoroughly enjoyed that! I have no interest in sport whatsoever, but there's just something that's so interesting about both what you showed me and the Brian Clough documentary...

    If you've got a free 4 minutes, do you want to watch this?

    That video just gets me stoked on... just life in general.

    Those guys aren't even that well known (although having said that, they are massive in their scene). They just saved up enough money in part time jobs so they could tour the world with their band. I want to be like those guys.

    Sounds like the same with me and psychology. It sucks because a teacher makes or breaks a subject for me! Have you had an ethics lesson yet? Last years year 12 hated ethics so I'm not looking forward to it:erm: What other subjects do you take?
