I hate exams ... I have finished most of my exams except Biology, Music and Physics. The easiest so far is Geometry, and the hardest is English. Both are harder than ABC :-)

Just for fun

The Pi Challenge

Try this π (Pi) Challenge. What is the missing digit? Hint: pay attention to the singing in the video.

I can only memorise 40 digits of π.


My friend Kendrick said that he could memorise 222 digits!!! It is up to you to believe it or not. How about you - how many can you memorise??

Late for School Again!

Last Tuesday, I went to school like normal, by bus 33. I waited for like an eternity (usually I wait for 2 to 15 minutes), but the bus had not arrived. Five bus 195 went past, but not a single 33 came! It finally came after a long half an hour wait. However, it was so packed like sardines that I could not board it. My heart sank. I had no choice but to wait for the next one.

Luckily, the next bus was just behind it (obviously, bus bunching). The good news was that the bus came a minute after the previous one. The bad news was that I was going to be late. To make things worse, the bus was crawling like a tortoise and there was a traffic jam. My mind was in a whirl and my stomach was churning. Later, the bus unfortunately broke down, and the only bus I could take from that bus stop was still 33 since there's no 196. Several minutes later, the bus 33 came and I quickly hopped into the bus. I reached school at 8.07 am.

I had already made an effort to wake up early ever since Ms Lau (my mentor) warned me not to be late again, but I felt that it was not my fault that I was late this time.

A few days ago I took the AIME II (American Invitational Maths Exam) paper at the Maths Oasis' office. I had taken the AIME I two weeks earlier at NUS High. As expected, Jonathan was there too. Since NUS High only allows us to take AMC10A/12A but not AMC10B/12B, we participated under Maths Oasis. Of those who took part in AMC10B/12B under Maths Oasis Open Category, only 3 of us were invited to take the AIME 2. The other one was a girl from RJC, which means she took AMC12B just like me, whereas Jonathan took AMC10B. The questions were harder than those in AIME I, which were hard enough. I could only answer 7 or 8 questions (out of 15). I heaved a sign of relief when it was over, 3 hrs later.

After AMC and AIME, there are still the Australian Maths Contest and the SMO (Singapore Mathematical Olympiad). The toughest one that I have taken so far is still the AIME, but I think it might be the second hardest, after the SMO(Open). I have signed up for both SMO (Junior) and SMO(Open), which will be held in end May.
