During standardized testing, the four seventh graders in Geometry were forced to take the PreAlgebra exam because they weren't allowed to take Geometry, and I believe that they took the Algebra test in 6th grade. One of those kids leaves tomorrow for D.C. for a math competition. I don't know which one, but if he wins, he'll meet Obama. I pity Obama.
National MathCounts is this weekend in DC...
To make it from California is VERY impressive, actually; some of the kids on that team are probably better than me.

Overly complex literature is completely headache inducing, while difficult chemistry/physics problems aren't for some reason.
Lol. Dropped out of AP Lit last week when I looked at some admissions material for my college and said, "Oh, wait, I can't get any more credits for taking AP Lit. Why am I doing this again?"
Dropped four tests for that reason haha.
