1.

Who are you? - What is your name?

- Where are you from?

- How old are you?

These are just a few intro questions just so we know who you are.

I'm Alex, a 17-year old male from Bavaria(Germany), and I'm interested in nearly everything having to do with science, computers etc.

2.

What brought you to the Mathematics and Statistics board? Were you recommended/invited here by someone? Or did you simply stumble upon it by yourself?

I was regularly on the Science board for a while, and some day I noticed that there was a new sub-board. That's the whole story.

3.

For how long have you liked Math? When did you realise that you either enjoyed it or were good at it?

I liked Maths since I was in school, and I like it still.

4.

What subjects/jobs do you do which involve Math? What do you do? To tell us how you use the knowledge you have!

Well, I've got Maths, Chemistry (which has pretty much calculating in it this year.

5.

What Math-related subjects did you take in High School? Or if you are a student, what are you currently studying? State what the course is about and whether or not you enjoy it.

6.

What is your favourite number? Why? Is it your lucky number? Date of birth? How did it come to be your favourite number?

My favourite number is

also known as pi, Pi, PI or π, I like it because it's irrational and you can make fine random numbers out of it.

7.

Who is your favourite Mathematician/Scientist. Why? Have they motivated you to continue your studies? How have they influenced you? What do they do?

Let me think...

I think it's Carl Friedrich Gauß (1777-1855), he did many things for Mathematics

8.

What is your favorite function in math and why?Do you think it's very aesthetic or funny?

x²+y²+z²=r². I don't know why.

9.

Three statements about yourself - True or false? - The community has to answerWhatever you want - but at least one of them must be true. Keep the answers secret until the end of your reign.

1. I've never studied for a Math exam.

2. I read Science books rather than novels or similar.

3. Chess helps me to train calculating in my mind

10.

Pi or Tau? Which do you prefer? Why?

I've always calculated with π, so I prefer that.

11.

Do you prefer to work in degrees or Rads? Degrees, if it is about geometry, rads if it's about trigonometry. Before trigonometry, I always used degrees, but in trigonometry, it's easier to calculate.

12.

Calculatorly or manually? Do you prefer to solve your problem (especially in Calculus) using a calculator or your patience and skill?

If possible, I do it manually, but when it comes to more complicated funcitons such as sine, cosine or similar, I use the calculator.

13.

Joke time! Come up with your best Math joke. No sourcing!

A sociologist, a physician and a mathematician are sitting in the train. They look out of a window and see a black sheep.

Sociologist: "There are black sheep in this area."

Physician: "False. There is at least one black sheep in this area."

Mathematician: "Still false. I this area, there is at least one sheep that is black on at least one side."

14.

Do you feel the temptation in tests to write your justifications in Na'vi? Have you? If so, when and why?

Not really.

15.

Do you like Physics too? Yes of course, because:

If it lives, it's biology; if it reacts, it's chemistry, if it doesn't work, it's physics.

16.

Real-Life Picture (Optional) 17.

Do you have any other hobbies? No matter how strange they may be...

Mainly programming.

This is the story Type no more than one sentence. The proceeding Mathematician of the week will then type another sentence continuing the story. A stickied thread can be found showing the story's progress hitherto.

Suddenly, I woke up and noticed with a shock I was kissing a cow.
