Went to Benoît's thesis proposal practice talk; Wrote most of the remainder of my speaking skills talk. Once again:

My practice talk: Tomorrow (Wednesday) 3-4pm, Wean 7220.

Really, however, the best source for all mathematical education is the following silly (and oh so delightfully british) video, thanks to lincoln3 for pointing it out to me:

This video is pretty awesome, and I've just started!

I think the only maths problem with a clear answer, #2, had the incorrect answer. I calculated 8 L - 8 ladies * 8 spiders * .08 L - 8 ladies * 8 spiders * 8 shoes * .01/8 L - 8 ladies * 8 stops * .08 L = -2.88L

Oh, I thought your talk was later for some reason.

Guess I might see it on Friday.

Sorry about the room clash though.

Man, didn't anyone tell you that the sole and ultimate criterion of concrete syntax is brevity?
