    Well, they don't call him "unbounded" for no reason, they say he has no bounds

    ps - why have you got mc^3?
    i assumed mc^2 would be too pretentious, or taken

    i may try that: did you get AFM then?
    EDIT: i think you might need to be quite good to teach yourself M5 in a day though
    I did, to AS.

    @ the edit: And it wasn't that bad. Admittedly, I'd looked at varying mass problems before, but there's still all the rotational crap which makes up about 2/3 the module in my opinion, and of course the systems of forces and moments and such in vector form.

    Ah. I was hoping for something better. I am officially disappointed

    T and S are like D, R and F apart...
    Not necessarily. He might have travelled via E, 4 and 5.

    Sorry I didn't read your OP before voting... My favourates in order are DFranklin, SimonM, and Generalebriety, plus neodai & Swayum to a lesser extent.

    just noticed: nearly all the people on the shortlist, their first reaction was to say "oh no, everyone else is SO much better than me at maths". except DFranklin, but then I remembered that he's a SICK PRO, and is so far ahead, he couldn't really play the modesty card! and the first reaction of most of those not on the shortlist was "BUT mummy, I'm good at maths too". They then waited to see if others agreed, or if they got savaged by the mathletes, they pretended they were joking.
    Oi! Why are you saying all this in a bitter tone? :p:

    I'm pretty sure this thread is just a load of banter (But serious at the same time! ) I think this thread just proves how awesome mathmo's are; in school, on TSR, in uni and in real life! :woo:

    My guitar prowess allows me to perform a live cover of the Quadratic Formula Song for Year 10 on an annual basis. Altogether now "that's exactly when he stuck a knife into my brain..."

    I hope you teach your AS classes the completing the square song too (sung to the tune of here we go round the mulberry bush).

    Yeah, I'd never cut it that close again though. S1 was ridiculously routine, the papers seemed to be the same every year with only a few numbers being changed.
    Did you get an A* in maths in year 7 or something lol?

    There's also an exceptional pre-uni mathematician on this site called "Goldfishy" but he doesn't post much so I don't think anyone else will mention him. I only know him from the Cambridge thread.
    Many thanks, but I definitely would not call myself exceptional, probably just have plenty of interest in the subject.

    OP, please take me off the list. I don't want to appear pretentious, and tbh pre uni-maths is nothing compared to uni maths (especially when I can't even get an S in STEP I for a start...). For Pre-uni, I think you should also include mc^3, although I still reckon Unbounded would win this section.

    Grad: DFranklin (only person I've seen of them post, except Mr M).
    Uni: Any of them, tbh.
    Pre-Uni: Unbounded - although I thought he was now at uni?

    i was actually going for the witty social observer tone: did it go that wrong? my ego can cope with not being on the list: i don't class myself as a TSR mathmo; i think i once helped someone understand Pythagoras, but that's about it (goes off and sobs in corner about mathematical inadequacy, and spelling failure, and being rinsed about the aforementioned [yh, spelled that one correctly, mr i'm so clever unbounded, with my nice picture, and my clever maths] spelling failure. <END RANT>

    Yes he did, in the GCSE and I think his A Level would have been an A* had it been certificated this June. :sadnod:

    mmm, but at least you can spell pretentious, which beats me. and, its not exactly pretentious if someone else nominates you. anyway, if you don't want to feel pretentious, last time i checked you were losing the vote, so don't worry!
