Really, I didn't remember the last lecture, I had took, but I'm not sure the last one was lecture on design thinking, oh, that was 12 years ago.

I dont remember it. But usually the lectures were boring because academics were so bad.

And my last lecture is about english.

What was the last lecture you went to about? Did the professor explain it clearly?

Yes, it was incredible and the teacher explains clearly.

In the Fibonacci sequence question there are missing just one number 1,2,3,4,5,8 in the middle of 1 and 2 there is missing the number 1

Hi emidepegaso,

Well spotted! Actually, the question asks about a particular sequence ('in this Fibonacci sequence'), so it is not intended to be complete. You're right, though, that the full sequence should begin with 1, 1, 2 ...

Best wishes,

nice XD XD

My last lecture was about listening but I didn't get it because of the teacher had poor techniques to explain her ideas.

I also want to know some example for the lecture because I was Mathematics student. I didn't know about Math that is important in everywhere. Teachers in my country didn't explain like that. So, I want to know about Math that is useful in everywhere.

I think it was a linguistic aspect in the field of technical documentation. It has been asked about how works it the functional elements in the text? the professor has explained the circumstance of my question and has given me some book.
