# Recreating childhood memories

As silly as it sounds, I recently immortalized my secondary school math projects on GitHub.

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.

You did this yourself ?

yeah. Why?

Actually , in India the students are forced into book oriented education . For instance ,they can cram a big deal about the byproducts of sugarcane and keep bagasses and molasses in front of them and they won't be able to differentiate between them. That's the reason I was amazed to find that you are able to do that Kaboobly Generator and then this . Talking about the Kaboobly Generator I indeed want to generate that thing in me ,what can I do? By the way well done!

Thanks. Actually, I did this trig project and the monte carlo for a school project.

You're right about the molasses thing. :P

What do you mean by "generate that thing in me"?

I genuinely believe that the more humourous you are the more the genius. (I do not know what made me believe that ). The most beautiful aspect of mathematics is that numbers may have some very astonishing properties like say "If you keep removing a digit from the right hand of the number ,each of the remaining numbers is also prime(Quick Quiz - Find one such)" and the same is the case with words . By the "generate that thing in me" I mean to say that I wanted to take part in the carrot class of yours .Have you been doing anything on that lately ?

Actually, no. Do you have any idea what I could teach?

The number I can think of is 73. EDIT: I thought harder and I get 293

I do have an idea . I wanted to run such classes but since you came up first with the idea so I joined your classes . Well , for starters you could teach something completely new and absorbing like for instance The Ellsberg paradox was a good idea . You could go on to show that all of us here we do not just study math ,we live math and that is not at all associated with the fact that what is your level on Brilliant or what JEE rank you hold. That might win you more candidates(for Soy Sauce) from level 1,2,3,4 ,5 and new members too.If you suggest then we can have a discussion on slack and discuss precisely what topics you could teach .

Okay, I will see what I can do. School work is keeping me a bit busy for a while.

- 5 years, 6 months ago

Same problem. Don't listen to them and they paint detention .School sucks!

- 5 years, 6 months ago

I completely agree with you. I am fed of my school, I am not able to get time to make some physics model or find out more about numbers. They give lots of shitty homework. I seriously hate school.

Actually , when I wrote that comment there was this teacher at school who was behind me for skipping a stupid biology extra class . So , the whole wrath piled up in me . Anyways , try my new set [Hall of fame] (https://brilliant.org/profile/raven-ort529/sets/hall-of-fame/).
