Recreating childhood memories

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

Here are the links:

  1. A Gentle Introduction to Trigonometry
  2. Monte Carlo Simulation for Finding Pi

You did this yourself ? Raven Herd · 10 months ago

@Raven Herd yeah. Why? Agnishom Chattopadhyay · 10 months ago

@Agnishom Chattopadhyay 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! Raven Herd · 10 months ago

@Raven Herd 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"? Agnishom Chattopadhyay · 10 months ago

@Agnishom Chattopadhyay 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 ? Raven Herd · 10 months ago

@Raven Herd 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 Agnishom Chattopadhyay · 10 months ago

@Agnishom Chattopadhyay 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 .

@Raven Herd Okay, I will see what I can do. School work is keeping me a bit busy for a while. Agnishom Chattopadhyay · 10 months ago

@Raven Herd 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. Kushagra Sahni · 9 months, 1 week ago

@Kushagra Sahni 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/). Raven Herd · 9 months, 1 week ago
