So. I finally decide to use this page, just to record my failures at math. It'll be sort of a history for me to look back upon. Oh yeah, I'm also adding stuff at the end.
My first "actual" math competition was in fourth grade, when I took the MML and scored a 29/30 (surprising, since I thought I had failed).
Then, in fifth grade, I took it again (fifth grade contest though) and got a 27/30, which was kind of disappointing. I also took the Gauss contest for seventh graders, which is Canadian, and I got a 134/150. Meh.
In sixth grade, I actually started competition math. I got a 17/40 on MMPC Part 1, allowing me to go to Part II, where I failed with a 0, even though my solution for 2b was pretty much the same as the official one. I made the school Mathcounts team, and got 8th at Chapter, where our team came 2nd. At state, I came 22nd and our team came 3rd. I got a 109.5 AMC 10A (all luck) and only like 76.5 10B, ugh.
I did manage to get 40/40 on 6th grade MML and a 150 on the 7th grade Gauss. I also got 38/40 on the Fryer competition (9th grade), another Canadian one, but proof oriented. 27/80 on the COMC though. Yuck. Also got a 142/150 on the 9th grade Canadian Pascal competition, and a 26/42 (since I missed the first round, so not out of 56) on Mandelbrot regional. Oh, and 23/25 on MOEMS, and 23/25 on AMC 8.
My 7th grade year , where I moved to Ohio, but still took a lot of the same competitions. I got 24/40 on MMPC Part 1 and 13 on Part 2, giving me 102nd place. I also won Chapter Mathcounts and 4th at state (team came 2nd chapter, 16th state), so I went to Nationals. I got 129 on 10A, 108 on 12B, and an unfortunate 4 on AIME II. I missed Mandelbrot round 5, giving me a 33/70 overall. I got a 24 on MOEMS and 22 on AMC 8.
55/80 on the COMC, 38/40 on Fryer, 144 on Gauss 7. So I scored lower on the AMC 8 and Gauss 7, tied on Fryer, and improved in everything else.
This year, I didn't go to ICAE (where I take most of my math competitions) until the Winter session, so I missed a bunch of competitions. I missed MMPC (darn), AMC 8 (who cares?), Mandelbrot round 1 (darn, round 1 was easy), and MOEMS (who cares?). Oh, I also missed COMC, which is bad because I could solve every question besides 4b and 4c. Darn.
Bad year for me somewhat, so far. 7/14 on round 2 on Mandelbrot. You know what? I'm not going to say I made stupid mistakes this time. It doesn't matter at all. 17 on USAMTS round 1, expected 17-19 on round 2. Too bad that my solutions were lost and I didn't save a real copy, just a rough draft. I'll have to make it up on rounds 3 and 4. Missed Mandelbrot round 3 as well, along with MOEMS round 3....
Major Goals for 8th Grade
National Countdown, 144+ AMC 10-yep, 132+ AMC 12, 8+ AIME, 6+ USAMO, 6+ ARML, 60+ USAMTS
Minor Goals for 8th grade
85+ Euclid, 40+ Mandelbrot (taken out due to me unable to take two of the first three rounds), perfect Pascal, perfect Fryer
To Do List
Add to the linear congruences part and post euclidean algorithm; some stuff related to proofs. Also figure out where to put diophantine equations. Add FTA, division algorithm (?) to User:Temperal/The Problem Solver's Resource
Write non computation MC problems.
