It’s exactly one month since the previous post.

I had promised a post 19 days ago but never really could get
around writing it. My sincere apologies for that. Since I’ve got holidays now,
I’ll have more time to post on this blog.

As I said
in my previous post, I have no idea in what way this blog is going to unfurl
itself. I’m going to let my intuition decide on what I’m going to post here.

These past
few days, I’ve been spending a considerable amount of time on Art of Problem
Solving website(hereby abbreviated as AoPS). I first found out about the
website on October 26

^{th}and really liked it. I wanted to spend more time on it but I never really could get myself to do so.
They’ve got
this “online learning system” called ‘Alcumus’. It basically gives me
challenging problems to solve from a variety of topics and upon solving them
correctly, I get some XP that enables me to level-up in that topic/chapter.

The number
of problems that I’ve attempted as of now is 300 and out of them, I solved 234
of them correctly. So that gives a percentage of 78.

Here’s the link to my Alcumus Profile -> Click here!

My current levels in the main subjects are –

Algebra – Level 4

Geometry – Level 3

Counting and Probability – Level 3

Number Theory – Level 3

Pre-algebra – Level 10

As you can see my level in Pre-algebra is the highest of
them all because it’s in that topic that I’ve been solving the most problems in
for the past 3 days. Out of the 300 that I’ve solved, 207 were a part of
Pre-algebra.

Yesterday,
I decided that I’ll switch to Geometry and increase the difficulty level of the
problems by a bit. It was “hard” before and now I’ve changed it to “insane”.

I’m really
looking forward to using more of Alcumus and going through its entire 7500+
problems.

I’ll be updating my blog with statistics daily. That’ll kind
of hold me accountable and make me use Alcumus more.

One more thing, check out the following link. Trust me, 90% of the people will find it funny and kinda informative ->

Until next time,

Adarsh.
