I've been really violent lately, haven't I?

The good: Chunying and I got a 100 on our algebra project. Yay!

The so-so: The French test today wasn't as bad as I thought. Even though the questions weren't too bad, I couldn't remember some of the geography, even though that's what I'm good at. Luckily, my really strong point was the essay question. I just wish we had more room on the back of the page. I seriously considered crossing out the numbers so I could renumber the page my way [i.e. so I could have enough space to write as much as I wanted].

The bad: I got a 62/100 on the last multivariable problem set. This surprised me, but it didn't shock me. So after I finished my French test I stopped by Dr. T's office and asked him about what exactly I did wrong. After all, I did work just about the entire weekend on it. We talked about it, and we found out that I just misinterpreted two of the questions [including the question I posted about the cheerleaders], and actually messed up on the other two. Then we started talking about other math-related fields. I asked him about his field, graph theory, and we started talking about problems in graph theory. It was a lot to take in for such a short time but still really interesting.


Also, the new Math Horizons magazine arrived in my box this morning. Yay! Now to go read it...

To Do:
1. FYS reading and Think Piece #4 (Tuesday)
2. French: read chapter 6 (Monday)
3. Multivariable problem set (next Wednesday)
4. Multivariable and algebra: the usual problems
5. Laundry [tonight, preferably]

I <3 graph theory. It's my speciality. Followed with my strengths in Algebra (Abstract, that is). If you've done any number theory, a lot of it becomes quantified very simply in group theory (or abstract algebra). Hell, to prove a number is divisible by 9 iff the digits add to a multiple of nine, is a simplistic proof. It's 3 or 4 lines, compared to number theory.

I'm glad school is going well overall. A word of advice: don't study so hard that you forget to have fun in college. It's the last time in your life that you'll get to be around so many people your age, so enjoy it while you still can.
