MotW #1: Eltu lefngap 'eveng

[Insert name here] is this weeks Mathematician of the Week! Seykxel sì nitram! [Insert name here] has been paired with [insert historically influential person's name here]

Oh wait, I was supposed to fill in the blanks? O_o
Eltu lefngap 'eveng is this weeks Mathematician of the Week! Seykxel sì nitram! Eltu lefngap 'eveng has been paired with Euclid .

1. Who are you?

Hai. I'm Eltu lefngap 'eveng, known around the interwebs as akiwiguy and on 'Rrta as Zarek Jenkinson.
I'm 14, I live in Auckland, New Zealand (even though I don't really like it here) and Yayo likes me.

2. What brought you to the Mathematics and Statistics board?

Yayo dragged me here when he first set up the board, and I've been here since.

3. For how long have you liked Math?

I've liked it mainly since I moved schools (March-ish this year methinks). Mainly because my math teacher isn't a total pooper like the teacher I had at my old school xD

4. What subjects/jobs do you do which involve Math? What do you do?

Well, writing computer software involves math, so I use it there.

5. What Math-related subjects did you take in High School? Or if you are a student, what are you currently studying?

I'm in high school, and since I'm only 14 I'm doing general Math. It's fun, especially algebra xD

6. What is your favourite number? Why?

My favourite number is 42.
Take a guess as to why. ;D

7. Who is your favourite Mathematician/Scientist. Why?

My favourite Mathematician. Hmm...
I actually don't know.
I'd have to say Isaac Newton. He's cool.

8. What is your favorite function in math and why?

Even though this is more than one function, I always like pumping random numbers into sin(x*tan(x+cos(x))) because it's funny to watch.

9. Three statements about yourself - True or false? - The community has to answer

Ooh, I like this part.

1) I occasionally sleep during Math class because stuff gets too easy
2) I used to absolutely hate Math
3) My dad didn't really care if I didn't study Math before the exam.

10. Pi or Tau?
I'm kind of in the middle. Tau is technically more accurate, or so I've heard.
But I stick with Pi because there's a button for it on my calculator.

11. Do you prefer to work in degrees or Rads?

Degrees. Don't ask me why. It's the default on the calculator.

12. Calculatorly or manually?

Haha, calculatorly. I love my calculator. It even has Pacman on it, for when I've done enough work. :D

13. Joke time!

Do I have to? I'm not a very funny person. I could come up with heaps of Science jokes but I can't think of any Math jokes.

14. Do you feel the temptation in tests to write your justifications in Na'vi?

Oh yes. I haven't yet, but I was thinking about it.

15. Do you like Physics too?

Physics isn't too bad. It's a bit boring, occasionally, but it's okay.

16. Real-Life Picture (Optional)

If you want to see me, look at my Facebook profile in my sig. It's 0006, my computer is slow and I'm too tired to find a picture right now xD

17. Do you have any other hobbies?

I do. Linguistics, computer programming, watching My Little Pony, drawing, writing, singing...

18. This is the story

Oh wow, here goes:
As our lips touched, a flood of emotion ran through my head, and I don't know if it's good or bad.

Thanks to Yayo for selecting me as the first MotW :D

Wow, I totally forgot to finish this before I went on my trip.
But anyway - here's the answers to the T/F :-
1) I occasionally sleep during Math class because stuff gets too easy - True. I still get Excellence on all the exams, though.
2) I used to absolutely hate Math - True. I never got math earlier on - it just confused me. But now I love it.
3) My dad didn't really care if I didn't study Math before the exam. - True. He doesn't care if I don't study as long as I do well, which I do. So yeah.

The next MotW has been PM'd, so hopefully po will post here soon.
Thanks to Yayo for selecting me as the first MotW, it was fun :D
