ARML Rapidly Approaching

ARML is this weekend… yay! Let’s win it SFBA A. Here’s the plan:

Team Round: 40 (no disasters like last year, ok?)
Power Round: 38
Individual Round: 95 (would be very nice… and yes, that means an average of over 6)
Relay Round: 32

This is very optimistic, but 205 should win it nicely.

My study: I went to school today with 3 math books (USSR Olympiad Problem Book, How To Solve It, Problem-Solving Through Problems) and came home with 9. Thank you Clement for lending me 6(!!!) Chinese math books.

Other news:

1) Simon has a new handle on the Internet Chess Club: opsgf. It stands for “ordinary power series generating function.”

2) Simon has a piano recital at 2 on Saturday… That’s about half an hour after ARML ends. Hopefully Simon will be in a good mood after winning ARML (individual and team) and will play well in the recital. Hopefully…

3) School is nearly over. I’ll be glad to get out of there. I hate that place. I’ll miss high school math contests though. I must visit. Tell me when they are, and I’ll try to come back up here for them.


About Simon

Hi. I'm Simon Rubinstein-Salzedo. I'm a mathematics postdoc at Dartmouth College. I'm also a musician; I play piano and cello, and I also sometimes compose music and study musicology. I also like to play chess and write calligraphy. This blog is a catalogue of some of my thoughts. I write them down so that I understand them better. But sometimes other people find them interesting as well, so I happily share them with my small corner of the world.
