The reason why I don't want to go to school is because I managed to learn more at home than at school. Take maths for example, I'm 2 years ahead already... What do you all think? Should I be home schooled? Einstein once famously said that education is what that is stopping him from getting educated. I agree.

Exact same scenario for me in high school. You can do what I did - self-study during and outside high school, get 100% and graduate early.

Or be homeschooled and self-study all day.

I wish I could get homeschooled, I learnt a lot during this 2 weeks holiday. More than what my teacher taught me in a year. But what do you meant by get 100%? I want to graduate early too, but I might need to get SAT my parents wants me to study in America.

And also what are you learning right now? What would you suggest me to do if I want to learn calculus and physics? (Two of these classes won't be taught until I'm 16 which is 2 more years).

Hi;

You might consider following along in the Agnishom, I teach calculus course?

Hi chooipian;

I can help you with any question you might have but that is not the same as teaching. I meant this:

post 1807 on.

hi chooipian

When I studied for A level maths (16 - 18) I worked at my own pace and mostly ignored my teacher. She was too slow and sometimes got it wrong. But I also sat next to the most gorgeous girl in the school, and hey, now I'm married to her. So I'm glad I was at school.

That's a great shame. Perhaps you needed MIF to get advice on your chat up lines.

Agnishom could have designed a few but he had not yet been born.

Odd how so many people sit next to their favorite person.

The underlined word does not make sense...

Hi Bob;

I've invented a pickup line that goes like this:

Agnishom wrote:There are three members in our family who drink tea:

One does without sugar and without milk.

One does with sugar and without milk.

One does without sugar and with milk.She wrote:I do with sugar and milk.

Agnishom wrote:If you marry me, our family would have the complete power set.

Isn't that a good one?

Sorry just a typo. Meant sat.

Maybe it's the soulmate thinggy...

Maybe we just like the people next to us because it is convenient to do so.
