Problem Set: what 13-year old kids do in China

RadMaths home page
In this note, I will provide a set of problems, all copied from my homework or test assignments. I am now 13 but I suppose there are some interesting problems in my homework anyways. Why not take a look?

Assumptions(all assumptions are made from the knowledge level of Secondary 1, which is Grade 7, in China)(Just to brag, I know integration now :) ) :

  • Imaginary and complex numbers do not exist.
  • There is no angle greater than 180180^\circ or less than 00^\circ. No angle equals 180180^\circ or 00^\circ.
    • This must be explained further:
    • Here OCOC bisects AOB\angle AOB while ODOD is not considered as a bisector at all.
  • Angle bisectors are rays. Rays, straight lines and line segments are to be STRICTLY DISTINGUISHED FROM ONE ANOTHER.

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.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

I think by rods you mean rays, maybe they teach a different terminology in China
