MATH CIRCLE 2009
I gave three talks/workshops during the Math Circle Program this year. These are the comments of
the students and at the end of the document you can see the averages of other talks.
1.
Triangles (Silvia)
a.
I love triangles.
b.
I do not remember
much about the triangles.
c.
I liked finding a lot of the delt
as and using
M
atlab to solve for
integer ones. One of my
favorite talks but I do not like proofs still
–
fun problems
d.
I enjoyed working
the proofs involved with Heron
e.
Geometry = :/
f.
Very useful
g.
Tri
angular
h.
Very nice
i.
They were nice
j.
Bloodily awesome
k.
Great
l.
I like triangles but the formulas kind of made me droopy eyed
2.
Cryptography (Silvia)
a.
Passing notes just got a whole lot more complex
b.
More complicated ways to encrypt things
c.
We did our project on it, s
o it was good
d.
1000000…nuff said
e.
It was my favorite
f.
Always see this on MAO test

helps majorly
g.
Love encrypting my own messages
h.
Cool stuff
i.
It was cool! Very interesting! Easy to understand
j.
I thought the Enigma Machine was interesting, along with RSA
k.
The
Enigma machine was very cool
l.
This is creative mathematics. I would even say that it’s not math except it has numbers.
m.
Very fun
”where in the world”
–
but was a little uneven. I felt more should be done on
some. Ciphers thru others
n.
It was the bomb. Real
ly interested
o.
RSA is beastful
p.
This is a valuable skill
q.
Liked the part explaining the history
–
very neat
r.
Very very useful
3.
Golden Ratio (Silvia)
a.
If I cant recite it in my sleep yet, I did not read enough.
b.
The Golden Rectangle is everywhere!
c.
I was surprised
at its applications.
d.
I like the applications of phi.
e.
I didn’t pay attention.
f.
I liked this
–
soo cool!
g.
I was lost on phi.
h.
Golden ratio is cool
i.
Went too fast to where I could not understand
j.
Talk was interesting but the problems after were very difficult
k.
Very cool
l.
The properties of phi are cool
m.
This was really interesting and fantastic actually, but she should teach a little slower.
n.
Fun at first but as previously stated, I dislike proofs and the repeated proofing made me
lose interest
o.
I still don’t know wh
at that means
p.
I loved the geometry part
q.
This is cool
r.
Kind of hard to follow but very useful
s.
Pleasing to the human eye
