    One of my physics teachers teaches out of the textbook also. I'm not sure he FULLY understands what he's teaching. It's not too much of a problem for me, but others it could be; a girl supposed that, since we "can't really detect" things like W bosons, Physics is like religion. Not an unreasonable thought, but this teacher couldn't really explain why it was bull**** :facepalm2::emo: I think I did a fairly good job myself of explaining to her why it was not so, but her first language is Norwegian and she hasn't been in the country too long, so I may not have been as clear as I could have been.

    At first glance this teacher seems unenthusiastic, but he's more mellow than unenthusiastic We're going to CERN in January, and to a few Cambridge lectures :ahee:
    CERN?! Wow, i wish my school would do that.
    I'll bring it up tomorrow!

    And that 'physics is religion' cracked me up, that's great. I'd share my views but I don't wanna offend anyone.

    The girl who asked is actually intelligent, my teacher is just, say, satisfactory for the course. He can teach the course fine, but he's not particularly knowledgeable on other things

    CERN is seriously booked up, I hope you can actually get a date. We wanted to go in March, but the lesson after that in which we were told we'd be going to CERN, the date we wanted, in addition to every other date in March, was booked :lol: We only got a date in January because my teacher called up and complained :mmm:

      It really isn't

      For a straight line equation, you always find y in an equation written as y=mx+c. The M is the gradient, and the C is where it meets the line meets the Y axis.

      We have moved away from y=MX+c to ax+by+c=0 is suspect you will soon aswell

      He's talking about straight line graphs. ax+bx+c=0 is a quadratic equation which isn't straight.

        You would rearrange it to make y=MX+c, but they mostly don't come in that form.

        Hola, bonjour, ni hao, hello.

        Basically, I'm in charge of the mini school bank. We have basically no money to promote ourselves so we really can only print posters/digital things

        Does anybody have very cheap and friendly ways to encourage others to join and start an account?

        I got an A on my physics test today It's a huge improvement from the two Es and a U I got in my maths tests! I get my chemistry result back tomorrow and I'm pretty sure I smashed that one

        ... I really need to work on maths! Does anyone think they could help me with this?

        FREE FO- oh.

        Interesting idea. Do you pay back interest? Give loans? Or are you guys literally just an alternative to keeping your money at home?

        More importantly, when do you run away with the cash?

        Do anybody else's teachers not use a textbook?

        Maths: Don't have a textbook OR handouts... All questions are written on the board and we work on them and discuss them... We use a program that my teacher wrote called Maths Brain and loads of questions come up on there... Kind of hard to explain.. Cool, but annoying nonetheless, especially when I want to read ahead.

        German: Don't have a textbook, don't have a clue what I'm meant to be learning and/or when I'll be learning it in class...

        Psychology: We got given a textbook that we can take home, but we never use it. We use a different textbook in class, but only rarely.

        Sociology: Same as psychology.

        It's really annoying when I want to try and read ahead. Anybody else have this problem?

        EDIT: I should point out that it's not slowing me down in anyway, like I said, it's just kind of annoying when I want to read ahead; I have to do it all online. I feel up to speed in all my subjects.
