Yan Yau's Message board

Hi, I am Yan Yau from Hong Kong, I am 13 years old and I am a Year 9 student in an IB school.

I learn most of my math from online sources and I don't really learn any maths at school (My class is still learning stuff like the Pythagorean theorem and graphing straight lines =.=).

Feel free to ask me any questions about me!

Well, there is only few brilliantians are from Hong Kong. How was the learnings over there in your opinion? Bored? Too easy? What makes you here? Christopher Boo · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Christopher Boo Well I can't really speak for Hong Kong cuz i go to an international school, but in my school maths is really easy and the "second-best" in math in our year level is like miles away from me (im not trying to brag or anything but like seriously). and this is also the reason why im on Brilliant, to find harder stuff to do and challenge myself

But the thing is there are students in the local schools in Hong Kong are absolutely AMAZING at maths.... i dont even know how they do it.... but the thing is, in Local schools you get A LOT of home work (like probably 100 times more than me... and i would say i am sometimes stressed with my schoolwork... i dont even know how they manage their hw) so the thing is all the really amazing people at math on HK don't have any time to go on websites like Brilliant...
