induction is like guessing
x^3=20
so what's x?
try x=3, 3^3=27, too big
try x=2, 2^3=8, too small
try x=2.5, 2.5^3= 15.6, too small
try x=2.8, 2.8^3=22.0, too big
...
eventually you'll get 2.69

being unbelievably old does have its advantages.
I just can't remember where I put them :)
My late night yesterday made waking up for school this morning pretty difficult, but I was no longer aching from the rare dosage of exercise I had on Sunday :) This morning before the assembly, I had a little time to spare so...

Pretty close!

It's actually even more algebraic than that - in a nutshell, it's a way of proving that something is true for all +ve values of 'n' by subbing in 'k' and 'k+1' as 'n', and proving that the outcome when 'n=k' is the same when 'k+1' is input, but with 'k+1' instead of 'k'

It's horrific to explain without lots and lots of paper... and you should see how much I have to write in my exam if a question comes up on it! :O

At least the Latin was correct!

I really can't explain why, but Tin Soldier by The Small Faces is currently my favourite song. I think I'm going through another 60s/70s phase ;) Elliot, Joe and Lily weren't in Physics today. From what I can gather, Elliot w...

It's been a long day and a pretty tiring first day back from school, but it kept me busy throughout and I haven't stopped which is a nice change ;) I worked out that I wore my suit jacket, shirt, trousers, tie, socks and shoe...

Just back from a great week in Prague. Fabulous colours, reasonably priced, decent food and you want to stop and take a photograph on every corner.

From the outside you are unlikely to leap through the door with much enthusiasm as it all looks a bit drab and dusty but it you take a deep breath and dive in and go straight through to the restaurant area you'll find a very genuine welcome and décor that probably hasn't changed since the 1970s. But that's how Chinese restaurants are and this is clean 1970s. we even had the marble rotating centre thing which makes sharing dishes easy provided everyone heads in the same direction. The menu has both Peking and Cantonese items and we chose one of the pre-set menus with a bundle of additional items. Prawn crackers arrived at the table almost as quickly as we did. The rest of the food was considerably slower, though. That's not necessarily a bad thing and it was all very freshly cooked and sizzled nicely on arrival. As a group of five, three teenagers a 30-year-old and I'm not giving away my massive age, we'd decided just to share everything and asked that they just bring it all as and when it was ready, expecting a sort of continuous flow of food. We also thought we'd ordered two of the set meals and worried that they were tiny portions but it transpired we'd only been given (and charged for) one. As well as misunderstanding that bit of the order, our desire to have most stuff arriving together didn't seem to get heard either and there were quite long gaps between 'courses'. We thought they were just being slow but they were just waiting for someone to finish something and that someone was trying to make it last until something else came along. Chicken and egg. Or maybe a beef and oyster sauce situation. For all that, the elderly staff were like old Chinese mothers looking after us and you kinda didn't want to hurry them along. The dishes were all excellent and, once the main courses arrived, there was plenty, despite the single set meal, and all was good with the world. I particular noted that we were only provided with chopsticks which was a nice change to the boring spoons and forks most establishments now give people as standard. I am sure we could have asked for some though so if you're worried about your chopstick skills sending prawns down others' cleavages you'll be fine. It was a Monday evening, quite early and there was just one other table occupied so we were able to laugh and joke without worrying about disturbing anyone. For what we wanted it proved an ideal place. Good quality, reasonable price - about £16 a head in total - and I am happy to recommend it.

OK, so it feels a bit like a place just for tourists to stop at but if you've been wandering around this fascinating area iy is as good as any a place to sit down. Watch the world go by for a while and the food and refreshments are fine. After days of dumplings I was quite ready for a taste of the West and a burger was very welcome. My partner had some great tasting soup and, of course, the wine and beer went down very well. Very clean and reasonably priced. Pleasant Australian-sounding staff.

Very clean and very tidy little cottage set in brilliant surroundings. Run by a lovely lady who is keen to please and very knowledgeable. Our rooms were beautifully furnished - maybe a little too quaint for me! The hot water was way too hot but maybe that's a device to prevent people using too much! Our visit was at the height of a heatwave and I spent more time sitting in the garden than in the rooms in a house built to retain not lose heat. Nice breakfast and good quality local produce. Tiny eggs - you may need to order two. Great home-made bread. No hesitation in recommending the accommodation. The beach is quite a fair 15 minute walk away and comprises solely very large stones. It'll be peaceful, though!

Just what I was looking for: a country pub where you could just wander in and enjoy good beer and plenty of home-cooked food. Plates full to overflowing. Hot and tasty. Calories galore. The place hasn't moved with the times but is all the better for that. It's clean and several nice fires kept us warm on a damp and chilly day. The barman will probably make you smile - if you're looking for a pretty blonde to serve you drinks then this may not be the place for you, though! I was delighted to see things like brass animals just sitting on a mantelpiece. In so many places anything of value would be either out of reach or behind glass. I just have to return for the sponge puddings. Good value, honest, unpretentious place.

Excellent food and refreshment and really reasonable prices. Simple seating and busy at peak hours but time it right and you can stay for a while quite peacefully. Nicely cooked grilled cheese and chips, tasty soup.

Comfortable little pub buried in a part of Hertfordshire even some locals probably won't have explored. Simple lunch menu available for our visit was quite adequate and dishes well-presented with good flavour. Beers seemed well-kept and house red excellent. No canned music - a pleasant change these days. Lots of respectable old ladies around. For simple, good value fare in peaceful surroundings, well worth a visit.
