1. Lol It's funny how I move a tiny bit to the left of where I sat last and the status of the connection changes from ''very poor'' to ''excellent''.

Got to love technology .

Uhhh pretty good thanks, can't really complain! It's gone farrrr too quickly though

(I think evvvvvvvvvvvvverry summer should be a gcse-esque summer...)
Yeah, I definitely agree!

Three things I couldn't remember how to do at all :

No 1. The curve with equation y=x^2 has been translated to give the curve f(x).
Find f(x) in terms of x.

(The curve in the photo only has the point 2, -4 on it at the lowest point of the parabola if that makes any sense )
The minimum of is at (0,0). How can you translate such that the minimum is at (2,-4)? What does this translation mean algebraicly?
Hint 1:
Spoiler:
Show
If the point (0,0) has been translated to the point (a, b), then the translation is a units horizontally (with positive meaning to the right, and negative meaning to the left), and b units vertically (with positive meaning up and negative meaning down).
Hint 2:
Spoiler:
Show
If has been translated a units horizontally and b units vertically to get , then .

GHOSH's Massive Functions and Translations "Cheat Sheet"
Let be a function on x.

A translation (shift) of k units upwards (in the positive y direction) is .

A translation (shift) of k units downwards (in the negative y direction) is .

A translation (shift) of k units to the right (in the positive x direction) is .

A translation (shift) of k units to the left (in the negative x direction) is .

A stretch (enlargement) away from the x-axis (in the y direction) of scale factor c is .

A stretch (squash) towards the x-axis (in the y direction) of scale factor c is .

A stretch (enlargement) away from the y-axis (in the x direction) of scale factor c is .

A stretch (squash) towards the y-axis (in the x direction) of scale factor c is .

I'll add a couple more, when I can think of some.

N.B. It is useful to realise why these a true. For me, it helps to think of functions mapping to domains and codomains when understanding why these are true.

ye so I've had a non-productive day
*finished my physics homework though*

John Locke's post above jogged my memory straight away. So my answer should be in the form in Hint 2.
9. I need to enjoy my last couple of weeks of hols. but for some reason I want them to be over with!

I want to be back at school now....I might go and pretend to be in y12 and see how long i don't get noticed for....
11. next year will be interesting; so will our classes-see who's dropped what and what teachers we have; ours have changed major-ly with different teachers etc. plus there's only going to be two form classes

They got rid of forms in the sixth form at school
*at sports day we still were like 'woo go lewis' but still...we didn't lose for a change *

I'm really interested to see whos stayed on...I think I might be the only person in chemistry and physics....
13. Yeah, classes are going to be even tinier. I guess it's a good thing, though.
14. Does anyone watch girls of the playboy mansion ?
15. No, but should I be doing?
