It's imposible, Sid. Not fractions, integrals! (you know the long S like sign, opposition to differentiation)

I know exactly what I meant, and what they are used for, thank you very much!

Btw Wroclaw is it true what Sidliste said that in the past integrals were taught to 13-years-olds or he was just pulling our legs?

What would I achieve by lying? I suspect that I'm quite a bit older than Wroclaw anyway ;)

I left school a long time ago, so I took "O" Levels and not GCSEs - everyone knows that standards have fallen since those were introduced. In my first year of Grammar school (actually a comprehensive by this point, but they kept the title, lol), I was 13-14, and we were introduced to both differential and integral calculus.

My last Polish girlfriend's son was approaching 15, and I was asked to help with his homework, because he was struggling with basic geometry (things we learned

*before* we were 13 back in those days). I asked her about Poland's allegedly "better" educational system, and it appeared from their responses that Poland isn't

*quite* as superior to our system as some may claim. I thought it was laughable that a lad who was less than 18 months from leaving school was still unable to do basic geometry and algebra, but that's the way it was!
