the myth that all autistic people are math and science geniuses is harmful bc it excludes autistic people who arent and prevents them from getting the help that they need and tells them that they “arent really autistic”
stop expecting all autistic people to be able to be physics and calculus masters at the age of 9
autistic people can be good at reading or writing or history or art or anything or nothing at all
stop making rules for our abilities and denying our autism because we dont meet your expectations
OKAY BUT Captain!America Castiel and Winter Soldier!Sam is awesome and needs to be a Thing™. Hear me out.
We’re talking Castiel, out of place in a time and culture not his own, learning to live and survive and adapt to changes. We’re talking rebel!Cas with an iron sense of good who will fight for what he believes in, opposing the highest authorities if the situation calls for it. Castiel with no place to call home, who saw the dawn of mankind but still appreciates the little things. We’re talking
“Sam is my friend” and “come near Sam Winchester and I will kill you” and “you are not taking Sam Winchester, I won’t let you” Cas.
And then there’s Sam, manipulated and used by insidious evil and blamed and criticized and targeted by the “good” guys. Sam who, despite the fact that he was not in control of being fed demon blood as an infant, still considers it a personal failing. Sam who tries to do good and doesn’t want others to suffer like he did, whose autonomy has been trampled on over and over again.
Just. Cap!Cas and Winter Soldier!Sam. That is all.
Ummmmmmm, I'm bad on the spot, What's the best flavour of milkshake? Oh um if you were a male would you look like a twink ;p? And how mush digits of pie can you name without looking it up?
haha, well, I have PCOS which means I have super high testosterone so I already pretty… blokey lol. I would definitely not be a twink, I’d probably be a big bushy bearded bear! I am useless at maths so… 3.14? haha i dunno if that is even correct!
THE BEST FLAVOUR OF MILKSHAKE IS PEANUT BUTTER AND CHOCOLATE, EVEN BETTER WITH A DASH OF VODKA, AND EVERYONE CAN FIGHT ME! ;)
A shape of constant diameter has a constant height. This is all that matters for rolling on top of something while staying at a constant level. While I cannot confirm, I have heard that the Ancient Egyptians would move stone blocks on Reuleaux triangle rollers instead of circular ones, because wood was expensive and scarce. However, the constant height does not mean the center of mass stays in the same place throughout the movement. Rotating it changes the potential energy. This means that it tends to stay fairly local, as it takes work to get over the energy hump, although things on it locally roll smoothly. They do not bunch up the way a shape that has a flat energy landscape would, meaning that unlike with spheres, you would not need to cover the entire ground in shapes of constant diameter in order to make a perfect field of ball bearings, reducing cost by requiring fewer shapes to do the same job.
hey guys! this is my first ever how-to post please bear with me
HOW TO STUDY MATH in three steps:
1. Understand the Concept
Memorizing the formula is nothing if you don’t understand the concept, especially in applied maths. Ask your teacher/professor all the whys, and hows. How did it come to be, How you can apply it in real life, etc. You’re lucky if your teacher/professor always explains the concepts in complex AND in layman’s term. If not, ask them to explain it in a much simpler way so you can grasp the concept. Please, please, if you’re shy or just plain afraid of the professor, think about the tuition you or the taxes of people pay for, maybe it will make you make the best of it. If it still won’t work, just ask a friend. :))) Math is wonderful if you truly understand the concept. Otherwise, you’ll just be annoyed while solving problems.
2. Practice, Practice, Practice
Want to memorize a formula? Practice. Answer mock exercises, exercises in your textbook(if any), old exams from friends, or exercise sheets you can get from the internet. At some point, you might forget the formula if you only memorize it. If you keep practicing, you won’t have to memorize the formula at all because your brain will just get used to it and believe me, when you face that exam paper, your brain will just automatically spit out formulas. Remember your favorite song four years ago? You might think you have already forgotten the lyrics(because duhh??! it was four years ago!) but nah. Try listening to it one more time and the lyrics will just come to you because you kept repeating it then(you did, oh the good old days).
This works for me best on analytic proofs. When you just have to prove, you need to go back from the start and tell the almighty story of how the heck did that thing come to be. You need to practice your skills on making a good algorithm. When I’m in the house and in a math state(i.e. solving problems, exercises, assignments), I say the steps I’m gonna do out loud like I’m teaching(First, blah blah. Second blah blah. …..) so when I’m in public places or in a classroom, my brain just fires instructions, silently talking to myself. Please don’t mumble, they might think you’re nuts or you might disturb your seatmates.
We can’t avoid math forever, can we? Better make the best of it by understanding. I swear it just gets better when you start to understand the concept. We can do this! Attagirl/boy!. :)))
