Guys, lets have a get real moment. Sit down, get comfy because I have feelings to share. I kind of miss math. I miss Stefano heckling me at 9am to be stoked about learning, the girl that wore her hair in a bun directly on top of her head, nini, the homework with disrespectful amounts of spelling errors, and the actual math. Why is this happening? Oh yeah, because in math you don’t...
As you all know, I’m done with Math 101 (thank you lord baby jesus) but Math 101 is not done with me. Sampson came into starbucks last night and sat RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME with a lady I presume to be his girlfriend/lover. My face the entire time: No. Sampson we are done, I understand that you probably recognized me since you kept doing the causal lean of oh-hello-there-person-I-know, but...
FINAL GRADES, oh my glob
First off, I’d like to thank my parents for giving birth to me and all that shit, thanks guys. Secondly I’d like to thank all my followers for helping me believe that my invisible audience actually consisted of 10 people. You’re all fabulous. Thirdly I’d like to thank Nini for being my math partner. And lastly, Stefano for being the Russian Jesus of mathematics. ...
Day of Review
For exam 3 is upon us, fearless followers. I envision it going something like this: I’m not worried about the finance, that’s pretty straight forward, but the algebra? What what what is this wording? Our homework for this week is disrespectful in that it’s ambiguous and riddled with spelling errors. Plus Sampson did little to clear up any misunderstandings, but I’ve...
Well, the Final is tomorrow
At 8am. Thanks Stefano. I have my last math night with Nini tonight. So many tears and like emotions. Partially for the memories and mostly for the ball chappery that math leaves me with when I’m done studying. Any who, here’s a recap of the past week in math: Recitation: One would think, that if your supervisor has come in to sit through your lesson that you would bring your top...
SISTER INFANT BABY JESUS
EXAM GRADES HAVE BEEN POSTED. OH MY GLOB GUYS GUYS YOU DONT EVEN KNOW GUYS LISTEN I GOT A 100 WUT …hell…hell has frozen over AND IT FEELS GGGGGGREAT!
Geometry: The Final Boss
So guys, after the rage-fest that was studying for the third exam, it turned out not to be too much of a traumatic acid trip of a test. The grades still aren’t up much thanks to Prof. Stefanos issues with comcast (comcast, your sticking your dirty little fingers in my business, best watch yourself). So I’m dying of anticipation and waayyyyyy too much coffee. But after a...
Only 4 more recitations
I. can. do. it. If I had a gif of balls being dragged slowly across icy concrete it would be placed below. Instead here’s this: You see, Sampson is aware of our discontent and in his own Sampsony way is enjoying his position. He now states in class how long it takes him to do things. Oh. Sweetie, we are aware that it took you 25 minutes to review information we already learned. We...
Day Shit I'm still in this class
Okay guys, this is true life time. I’m bad at keeping up with things. Hence why this blog stopped being updated. Sad. So here’s where we’re at in this battle royale: -I have a chance at getting an ‘A’ -I really despise Sampson. Every recitation is like dragging my balls on concrete. -Stefano is still funny -We’ve made it through logic and finance &...
Day 9: Math lol
We’ve finally reached the cuteness that is quartile deviation & standard deviation and you know what? I WAS SO PUMPED. Now I can finish my damn homework. And Stefano, being the saintly sweater wearing bloke he is, changed our homework due date to Monday. A true good guy Greg. Range, inter quartile range, & quartile deviation are easy enough. Standard deviation is essentially...
Day 8: Sampson
Recitation take 2. Entered class: Left class: Why? Well let me tell you dear followers: Sampson rambles. Then after his rambling he gives you an answer to your question in what I’m assuming math in Shakespearean quotation would sound like. Before taking the quiz, Sampson decided to teach us how to do percentages. Really? After the fact he rambled about pie charts and eating pie. ...
Day 7: N=Nicole
Sometimes we take risks, and that’s usually a good thing. I took a risk by starting 1.2’s homework because back then I was reckless and care free but now I’m plagued by extra corrections because Stefano worked his wizardry. Naturally, you can’t just add up mean & crap. You have to find n and put it in numerical order. Little stuff, but I didn’t do that on my...
Day 6: Moar Stahbuks
Went to Starbucks again today to do more homework. Finished section 1.1 and played the roulette that is starting 1.2 without Stefano’s wisdom. It’s only mean, median, and mode but he probably was some wacky ass way of depicting it. RISK TAKER. Starbucks and I are going steady though on a positive note. ehhh there’d be some snarky gif to match this if photobucket wasn’t...
Day 5: Stah-buks
So yes, it’s technically Saturday, but that doesn’t stop Nicole. No, no. no! What do we do? We go to Starbucks and study because that’s what all the English majors do. Plus I really wanted a Grande Skinny Soy Vanilla Latte. Nini & I trucked through our homework like small tigers to the point of not knowing if 5+5 really truly equaled 10. I ended up with a cute amount of...
Day 4: Charisma
Stefano was charismatic as ever for our lovely Friday class. This is shown heavily through his notes which: A. contained spelling errors, and B. Were practically word for word of what he said a lot of the time. But I can overlook it. We did pie charts and histograms. Then we did this business: y=f(x)=4x+2 if x equals 1,2,3,4 Hard? No. Annoying? Quite. Cause of irritation? Senioritis. Then...
Day 3: Real Life Application
Thursday is my math free day of magic, but naturally I did my homework. It wasn’t terrible but it was time consuming, but that could just be my paranoia in needing to write everything out. EVERYTHING Plus it had those stupid ‘apply this to your life’ questions. Whatever Weekend:
Day 2: Stefano
First Impression of my professor: We’re going to get along. From now on I’ll refer to him as Stefano, which to me sounds suave, bad ass, and slightly awkward. Stefano has a lot of charisma towards math while maintaining a honey badger attitude. Our mission, as defined by him, is to earn AS MANY POINTS AS POSSIBLE. But for real, he means business. Cheat on his tests? He’ll...
Day 1: Machines by Google
My descent into Mathopotamia was as anticlimactic as these cats feel. For starters, since myniu is boss, I had this 5 minute panic of ‘sweet jesus I can’t login I don’t know where in DuSable this is ohmygodimgoingtobelateonthefirstday.’ But then class search saved my ass, crisis adverted & it was time to skate to class. There are only about 15 people in...
Well folks, I survived and prospered through my mathless fall semester. Now it’s time to man up and face the beast that is Math 101. Me, being the responsible student I am, decided to check out their fantastic course page. It seems innocent enough, but for those of us who are math challenged, we know better. Plus, the grading scale sets the tone: So, okay, 75% to get a ‘B’?...
So. The magic wizard I meet with to ensure I graduate indulged me with this little tid bit of info: In order to graduate from Hogwarts, I need to take mathh 110 AND stats 208. OR just take math 101. I chose Satan’s option & went with the 101 plan. I guess I’ll see you guys next semester. …I’ll probably make another tumblr for things not related to math.
How my day started with math: How it ended: Here’s why: I had recitation today. Our TA, Jon, is alright. He seems personable enough to handle my elementary understanding of his life calling, maths. Things were good, I understood what was going on. Flash forward to doing homework. Breeze through the first 13 problems no sweat. Then I get to #14. It was this 8xy to the -1 power. ...
So my professor is kinda like this broad: Granted I’ve only watched episode but I feel it works. I was weary when she arrived to class in cheetah print, she’s fierce. She tore through her expectations and then we did math. ON SYLLABUS DAY. She means business, but I think it’ll be….decentish. But to be safe: I only felt totally lost when we got to long division....
FINAL EXAM Tuesday, 12/6, is cumulative and covers everything. Tuesday, 12/6, is cumulative and covers everything. is cumulative and covers everything. and covers everything. covers everything. everything. EVERYTHING.
IT BEGINS AT DAWN (or, technically, at 12pm)
Just read through the Math 110 homepage. Was feeling mildly confident until I read this: “CALCULATORS: You will NOT be allowed to use a calculator for hour exams or on the quizzes.” SWEET INFANT BABY JESUS.
