John Venn was born today in 1843.

Here's a poem written in his honour.

curse of my early life, doing SMP mathematics and then having the shock of differential calculus to contend with.

That was largely dependent on how far along the SMP path you went because SMP was designed to teach to GCSE and calculus is an A Level topic.

That said anybody who gets a B (I am talking generally here because I have no idea what grade you ended up with) at GCSE is likely to find A Level difficult and a bit of a shock but that isn't the fault of SMP, GCSE or A Level. It is a substantial step forward from one to the other. Just seeing it out and getting a grade is quite a significant achievement even if an E at A Level doesn't sound like much to the outside world.

GCSE grade A - Then HND, I never even saw a book of log tables during GCSE, simultaneous equations with three unknowns was fun, quadratric equations and factorisation I think scarred me to this day, but I did pass.

Well Grade A is excellent so well done and the jump to HND is even further than that to A Level so well done on that one too.

Log tables! Something of a relic from a bygone age now.

i was in the first year of GCSE's , bleddy shambles.
I failed the maths test (forgot my calculator), even though I'm shit hot at basic arithmetic .

The basis of my Maths education was marking the board for my Dads darts practise, Maybe skools should have darts sessions at lunchtimes for the not so academic types ?

Darts scoring should be a must at school. I put my good mental arithmetic down to it foreshore. Once we got to Algebra at school I lost all interest in maths, I just couldn't see where I would use it in real life and I was right I haven't. Basic maths is indispensable but fifty percent of what you learn is only used by about one percent of people.

Racing odds. That's how Jimmy Corkhill got away with pretending to be a maths teacher.

Have a pie chart instead. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

betting odds is another good un. Grandad was an illegal bookie back in the daze, What a wonderful family I stem from.
