# Hahn's Message Board (and a thanks to Brilliant)

Hello fellow Brilliant users! I've noticed a lot of message boards, so here's mine. It's rather long, but bear with me.

I am currently 12 years old. I am in 7th grade and lives in North Carolina. Although all of the [mostly useless] homework teachers "torture" students with has hindered me from doing more things, I am still very active in many things. Soccer is my passion, and I like to play the cello. Besides math, I participate in other school-affiliated activities, like Science Olympiad and Quiz Bowl.

Math has been so interesting to me, and although I realize that I have capital M-U-C-H MUCH more to go in order to be nearly as good as some of you guys are, I strive to do my best. One person from this another really cool math site besides Brilliant called AoPS (indirectly) told me about this, and I am glad that I learned about this site. From here, I am able to gain a valuable experience that I continue to enjoy. This wonderful site has made me to what I am today, and it has become a great influence in my mathematical journey.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

What is Fayetteville, North Carolina known for?

Staff - 7 years ago

Although I am not military-affiliated, Fayetteville is known primarily for being the most prominent site of Fort Bragg, which is apparently the largest US Army installation. It is also home to the Pope Air Force Base. In my school, a little more than half of the entire population is somehow directly connected with the military.

It has also won the All-American City Award from the National Civic League three times.

You asked the same thing about Williamsburg to me. Did you see what I responded?

My brother turns 5 on May 14th. During my sixth year of life (that's between the age of 5 and 6), I learnt all my tables till 12. Guess this is why I am so good at math. Foundations.

- 7 years ago

I never learned tables. I mean, they tried to teach me them but I just ignored the stupid teachers.

Hah, dude, I didn't know what a function was until this summer. I learned 8 years of math in the time it takes some people to learn to ride a bike. :D

Just like @Nathan Ramesh except you can't seem to succeed

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Ahem. Wait till next year. 10 bucks I kick all your MC and AMC scores. :D

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Same here. I was learning limits but I didn't know what functions were. Last year, If you had asked about $f(x)$, I would say, I got no idea. Talk about structured learning.

- 7 years ago

Dude, I was learning surface integrals when I asked that question. :P
