interesting fact #1: bored is spelled B-O-R-E-D, not B-O-A-R-D
Sorry, had to correct. Impulsive. Spelling mistakes tend to bother me.
Hope this wasn't too rude.

NOW! INtersesting thing for real: today in Math class, we were assigned a review for thw whole year (all eight units of math) and we were expected to rememeber stuff we learned in the first week of school and actually do it.
Made me angry.

I wouldn't have gotten angry with you, I would've laughed at myself, then tell an even funnier joke  ;)

You guys getting by? In spite of the horror known as Maths?

sigh. im done the homework (took like 5 minutes of actually using the new revelation "the calculator") and I absolutely hate HATE HATE my math teacher. She is dumb and I could teach the class better than she does.
Luckilly, I enjoy doing math. It's more logic than English class and theres formulas and I just love using logic and reasoning, two things you need in math. plus skillz.
Title: Re: boardness
Post by: Chloe-Wa on May 11, 2010, 08:03:54 AM
the maths we do isn't like that, only a little of it uses formulae, we do really pointless stuff and its so difficult. i'm not a numbers person, mind works in words, i suppose thats why my favourite subjects are things like English and RS. my maths books are on the table, glaring at me evilly and the test papers sit beside them, filled with scary unsolveable questions

Omg! We just finished learning it! I actuyally like it. Asquared+Bsquared=Csquared

So freaking easy. Have you learned how to find the hypotenuse in a triangle using the formula?

Post by: Mara-la on May 11, 2010, 08:39:55 AM
I already know it, but the teacher hasn't taught us yet.
Title: Re: boardness
Post by: Emma-la on May 11, 2010, 08:42:42 AM
that sucks, I jhust learnt it this year.
it makes math fun when I can be smarter than my teacher. It was funny, I got the answer for a Gauss math test question that she couldn;'t get. I taught it to her.

My math teacher dosent like being wrong or corrected.

neither does mine. She also tries to make me (the smartest kid in class, not being vain, it's true) seem as sumb as possible
I think she hates me.

i hate when teachers don't like me, it makes me feel like i'm really stupid. Getting a pythagoras question on a paper is a blessing, its a nice relief question amongst the horrible trig stuff and stupid circle theorums
Title: Re: boardness
Post by: MikeMagpuyo on May 12, 2010, 04:06:00 AM
I just got my SATs test results today, and I got a 105 overall.. 8C for me!  :D Sometimes math just makes sense to me.

no, stuff like calculating the angle of a triangle based on its position inside a circle, or the between a tangent and a circle based on other angles within the circle... pretty unpleasant for a maths-hater  :'(

thats great mike  :D  what did you get in the other subjects (if you don't mind me asking)?

the old PE teacher didn't hate me, but she didn't much like me either... i can't really blame her though, i didn't really do much in PE  ::)

Some sports, I'm amazing in and others I wish didn't exist. Anyway, going out, be back in about 20 mins.

7A for Science, but we still haven't received our results in English..

wow, if you're grades in science and maths are anything to go by, you will have done well in english, well done mike  :D

I have no clue what that means.
Title: Re: boardness
Post by: Chloe-Wa on May 15, 2010, 09:40:52 AM
SATs are just exams you do in year 9 in maths and english, level 8 is the highest in maths, and in science and english its level 7 (i think)... they used to be officially marked by examiners, but schools just mark them themselves now

Oh. I'm glad I'm young. I don't have to worry about that.

What happens if you fail an exam? Not that any of you will. Just, do you go to summerschool, or something else?

Crazy... back when I did them we never had letters after the number :) but way to go Mike!! ;)

Naah, SAT's are just another stupid testing system developed by the government to help with placement in the year... if you sat there and did nothing, they'd just put you in the bottom class =P

I don't agree with them though... completely stresses kids out for no real reason, they could just use your normal grades to determine it... and I think they start as young at 8 year old now - which is ******* shocking if you ask me!! When I was 8 I was thinking more about lunchtime and after school than what was about the lessons =/

Sorry, slight rant ^_^

we had sats tests in year 2, when we were 7, then year 6 then year 9.  the senior school ones aren't a big deal now because they aren't really "official" anymore

Okay, when you said SATs I thought you were talking about the SAT, which is totally different...
And in highschool you're expected to remember all the info for the year due to finals. It sucks.
Title: Re: boredness
Post by: Mara-la on May 16, 2010, 09:27:08 AM
Then I'll fail miserably, because I can't remember that amount of info.
Title: Re: boredness
Post by: Sadie-la on May 17, 2010, 04:14:33 AM
Yeah, I have trouble remembering pretty much any amount of info, unless it's a name. I can't even remember my boyfriends phone number.
Title: Re: boredness

:) I can't remember my own cell number, and I've had it for years! :B

I hate my cell phone, so I don't know my number. I never use it unless I have to.
Title: Re: boredness
Post by: Nina-Chan on May 17, 2010, 05:41:17 AM
when someone asks me for my cell number i always start giving them my mum's # then am like "oh sorry! wrong one!" and they are like "umm...ok..."
Title: Re: boredness

lol...well I don't have one cause I don't have a cell phone (gasp, i know) because I never have the money to pay for one, and no way would my mom ever in a million years pay for my phone.
Title: Re: boredness
Post by: Sadie-la on May 18, 2010, 10:14:46 PM
lol. I never have money because I spend it on gum. I am a major gum adict. I chew like a pack a day. I'm out, now though, and I think I will die.  I will have to get my mom to take me to the dolar store today so I don't explode.

she is older, but only by two years, but still she shouldn't get advantages because of it... however, i have the bigger bedroom  :D

I've had my cell for two years. It barely works. Before that, I sti used caller ID and electronic phone books (home phones!)
