No escape from reality

This morning I finally got around to proving that proposition. It turned out to be very straightforward:

After that I started assignment 6 in order to put off QUAN a little longer. I've had too much success in the last four days - dropping from the dizzy heights of stuff I know into the mire of differential equations was a bit of a shock. If I persevere, however, ordinary differential equations will soon be included in the category of "stuff I know". The dizzy heights can only get dizzier.

The other thing I've been working on today is Kaprekar's constant. I first encountered it when I was about 12, and I wanted to analyse it more closely before showing it to my student [assuming that she hasn't seen it before]. Turns out that that strange thing we call a "digit" is very strange indeed - so far my analysis is going nowhere fast.
