How hard is it really to get top positions in the state for 4 unit maths, my tutor was like some kinda maths olympian in his high school days and claims that he was better than most teachers in the state from the best schools like syd grammar and hurlstone and he told me he was dissapointed big time after only coming 10th in the state for 4 unit in the hsc.So that guy who topped the state from barker must have been quite amazing because my tutor also claims he was even sharper in his high school days than he is now, its been like a decade, which is very scary indeed

BIG-WILLY: Take it easy mate! Not every comment is necessarily a sarcastic one- I surely didn't intend to be sarcastic; my comment was 100% genuine.

No offence but don't look *too* deeply into the posts, 'cause a lot of times, what one writes and actually is saying can be interpreted in a totally different slant by another, as eviidenced here. My general rule is that most ppl are genuinely here to help others and/or are grateful to those who do. :) (<--- no sarcasm here ok?)




Anyway, the guy topping 4u at my school is an Australian Maths Olympian and is 'apparently' the best Australian mathematician under-21 (don't quote me on it though...).
If he doesn't top the 4u paper this year, a lot of people will be suprised...and like fatmuscle said, they make our 4u papers hard to challenge even him (well he never gets 100% in the papers), so as you can imagine my upcoming 4u trial is no doubt gonna be a bitch :(

Morgues...yeh I realised my initial reply was out of context so I edited it. The first part was meant for BIG-WILLY only. :)

From what i've heard, our school hasnt finished (i dont know what minai is on about), and that the students are teaching each other how to do certain chapters (its their assesment: to teach a chapter)

:( Somewhere I must've read that 4-unit papers are always written by crusty uni professors who take sadistic joy in writing undoable papers.

Not sure if that EXACTLY is true, because the Ext 2 paper last year looks pretty breezy compared to, say, 1995, but...

I still worry...

while we wait for the magnum opus which will make everything RIGHT...

But, if you do that work, the marks for this one unit will also outweigh the marks for all your other units put together. :p




Well, not literally, but it'll all be worth it. =P
