# Curve

— 8th March 2002

Learning curves tend to be exponential in nature (e.g. y = x^{0.9}). At the start you learn a lot very quickly, but as time goes by the curve becomes less steep and your learning becomes slower and less significant. Eventually you reach a point where the ground is almost level yet however long you trudge you will never reach the summit. Maybe it’s time to find a new curve.
