## Introduction

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.

So I didn't take very many competitions. Mandelbrot: - 7 11 - - Moems: - 5 - - - USAMTS: 17 TBD 17 dunno (since I only needed like ~10 on round 4, I decided to only do three problems, but made very stupid mistakes on two, so I'll probably miss bronze by a tiny bit)

Mathcounts: 1st chapter written, 1st chapter bracket countdown, 3rd chapter team, 1st state written, 1st state bracket countdown, 9th state team. I'm going to Nats for the second year in a row. Yay.

## Major Goals for 8th Grade

National Countdown, 144+ AMC 10-yep, 132+ AMC 12-no, but didn't expect to, 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 four rounds), perfect Pascal (didn't take), 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.
