Difference male / female math student

There are quite a number of differences between the male and female humanoid.

Dressing outrageously: artificial smells, colourings on the face and the body, huge outfits on top of the head, aka: hair, high heels and always carrying around bags full of gadgets. Serious: women think different than men. When they are doing math for instance. Research shows that they do it with different parts of their brains. While they are working on a task they can do various things at the same time. Men feel discomforted when they have to do more than one thing at the time. Men like to zoom in, analyze, solve, fix and tick off, next issue. Men operate linear, women non-linear. ( In math the non-linear case is usually the difficult one. )

Anyway, I used that thought today while trying to fix some planning issues. The fact that was causing regular procrastion was that I was on two courses. I don't have much problems with M208 although it consists of at least three separate courses: Linear Algebra, Group Theory and Real Analysis. It is however neatly scheduled in a linear fashion. That was the key and I found it between the ears. I am now working on one ( virtual ) course called M208MT365. You can imagine the rest of the drill: I merged the plans, etc. Simply by changing perception I am much more at cause over my study.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
