Cultural Applications of Mathematics for Make Deny Glorious Nation of Nigeria

(19)
Tuition given in the topic of Miss Loi the Tutor from the desk of Miss Loi at 8:05 pm (Singapore time)

Pharmaceutical companies and Nigerians seem be doing really well these days, judging by the myriad links to product catalogs and pleas for help left in Miss Loi’s comments box daily.

Oh but Miss Loi is never worthy of such elegant products and neither is she capable of million-dollar transactions. So up goes filters such as *Akismet to save her the shame of having to personally reject such sincere offers.

Spam Count

*This is why sometimes your comments may take a while to appear.

Some high-end blogs and websites though, may not be so forgiving to these well-meaning folks and allow only those of a minimum mathematical standard to interact with them.

Take the great Uncle Sha for instance:

Uncle Sha's Mathematical Captcha

This program has been such a success that a reader left this comment:

thanks sha. i like to visit your site also, because everytime i want to leave a comment, i have to do a maths sum, so your blog also helps me to practise and maintain my maths standard.

Brilliant indeed, denying the Nigerians and maintaining readers’ maths standards simultaneously.

But no biggie for Miss Loi really. In fact she feels extremely honoured to have passed his litmus test time and time again and be granted the privilege to comment there. The same cannot be said for the poor African bot scripts and babies who can’t count though.

But 一山还比一山高, now look at gorgeous Felix Ker’s tagboard:

Felix Ker's Mathematical Captcha

As a sign of the meritocratic times that we live in, one needs to have knowledge of powers and indices before (s)he is permitted to write on this board. Felix probably did his homework and concluded that powers and indices are not part of Nigeria’s school math syllabus.

But as a math tutor, surely this can’t possibly pose a stumbling block for Miss Loi? *quickly hides calculator*

But we’re not done yet. One night while blog-hopping Miss Loi stumbled upon this post by Public Education.

Apparently, in order to sign up as a member to this Croatian website, you’ll need to solve a ‘qualifying question’ like this ‘just to prove you are a human‘:

Crazy Mathematical Captcha

Wow. Miss Loi can claim to know plenty of bona fide humans who can’t solve polynomial questions. Or is this meant for cyborgs only?

NOT implying that Miss Loi doesn’t know the answer to this question, but it was pretty late in the night so she decided to reload the page to get another question (preferably a simpler one):

Crazy Mathematical Captcha II

and again …

Crazy Mathematical Captcha III

OMG …

Crazy Mathematical Captcha IV

After running through a quick hypothesis test which concluded that:

  1. Croatians are human.
  2. We’re not.

… Miss Loi quickly shut down her computer, jumped into bed, drawn the blanket over her head and began dreaming of Croatian kindergarten kids solving the above questions.

頑張って!!!

    kiroii: The fuss is, its just a simple act of leaving a comment. Does it warrant such challenges?

    Kiroii/123`,

    Actually the partial symbol you see here is used to denote a Partial Derivative.

    It's been a long time since Miss Loi touched these so it's safe to say (barring the day pigs can fly) that you won't see this in your O-Levels.

    Step, yes of course but Miss Loi would really need to discuss the schedule with you, amongst other things.

    Do email your contact or call Miss Loi directly to get in touch asap.

    Welcome to Jφss Sticks Cikgu Choonie!

    You sound much, much more refined than ... umm ... HAM. Unfortunately Miss Loi never did get the chance to make it to STPM 😛

    BR, actually exampaper.com.sg and exampaper.sg were offered together as a buy-1-get-1-free package so being typically kiasu Miss Loi just took both lor.

    But later on she realized it was for the first year only -_- ... oh well ...

    OMG I finally found someone who have the same interest like I....
    is the calculus level math questions generated randomly or just picked out from a question database? if it's the first one, they have a powerful computer algebra system.

    Welcome to Jφss Sticks Mgccl!

    From the look of it, should be picked up from database, else the owners of that site must be such pure, passionate maths fans that they couldn't resist spreading the joys of the subject to the rest of the world!

    Wait ... isn't that what Miss Loi's doing?! Hehe

    Prodigy, Miss Loi's a bit surprised that a precocious prodigy like you has never heard of things like web hosting fees, domain name fees etc.?

    With regards to the Einstein-esque stuff, Miss Loi might just have someone she can refer you to 🙂
