Teaching in BASIC.

Postby Master Lawbringer » Thu Mar 02, 2017 2:40 pm

I wrote a 102 line BASIC program that shows how to teach sin/cos, complex numbers, fourier transforms and the uncertainty principle to children.
But you people do not want to know about it because it exposes the academics as mere gobbledegokking pseudo math fakers.

I don't get it.
Listening twice as much as you speak is a sign of wisdom.

It's called a vivid imagination, Monster. If not that, I'd worry as the only alternative is rampant megalomania.

ML, you've linked to the same BASIC program in each of your three posts. Does this make any sense to you?
