## Has anyone else ever done this thing

where you count time differently? If I wanted to say 5:30 a different way, I would say it was 4:90 because then it u would reduce it so there are 30 extra minutes so you change the 4 to 5 and use the extra 30 minutes to make it 5:30. I've always been the only person to do this...

## My Favourite 5 Mathematicians - #1

In my novel The Theory of Relativity the protagonist Bert toys with the idea of having a normal curve tatooed on his buttock. His brother convinces him otherwise. Bert's hero was Carl Friedrich Gauss. Mine too. But I never went as far as thinking about the tatt. Various thinkers...

## I Loooove Math!! I am very proud of my Score on

the Math section of the SAT. Only missed one!!## I absolutely love that feeling of figuring out

calculations and stuff in my head. I feel like it's just me and this calculation together in a lonely dark room. As time progresses I begin to figure out what the calculation is, what it is wanting, why and ultimately the final answer. I love math!!!

## Open questions. A lot of people do not realize

that mathematics is filled with questions that nobody has yet been able to answer. Most of those are very complicated and abstract, but here is one that is easy to understand. It is called Goldbach's conjecture. In the 18th century, Goldbach noticed that every even number...

## Thank You!!! To My Two Most Favourite Mathematicians Ever!

My first most favorite Mathematician(s) would have to be the first person to come up with the concept of one. I'm sure he would also be the same person to add one and one together . Now I don't know if he would be the same person to arrive at the concept of two as a singularity...

## Okay so here's a question: If your school work

counts for 100% of your grade, but is divided into two semesters worth 40% each and a final test worth 20%, what grade will you have to get on the final test if you made an 80 in the first semester and a 75 in the other to get at least a 70 average?## Maths is my favourite subject.

I got Astar in year 10. I want to do maths at a level and at uni!## Mathematics is everywhere.

Everything we see, hear, smell, taste and touch are all measured mathematically. Mathematics upholds the language of the universe!## Today I have two mathematics assessments.

I'm unsure if I am prepared enough though

## Study = Fail .. Not In My Eyes

difference between the function f(x) = 1/(x-1) and the function g(x) = (x^2 - 1) / (x-1) ....then you don't know your asymptote from a hole in the graph!

I have always liked math, i guess it's something you born with. But also think that it has something to do with the teachers you have at a young ages.

## Math Is a Wonderful Thing...

I love math because (if you're good at it) you do it, and it's done. It's objective, and you can just cross it off. As long as you understand it, which I usually do, you can just do it like a machine. I feel so accomplished and smart when I do math. It's the only thing I'm good...

## Any girls like math? If

But unlike other subjects, it doesn't come natural to me, which makes it a challenge that I sometimes rather not deal with.
