∝±√≈∧∞∑∫π

The above isn't me cursing. (I don't curse.) It's some of the mathematical symbols in Additional Mathematics. Today, I did revision on 14 chapters as preparation for the Additional Mathematics quiz. 14 in one day. I am spent.

It's not often that I sit down and read Math. I don't even read Math, to begin with; this is something new to me. However, I had to read it instead of jump straight to solving questions this time as my memory had failed me and I seemed to have forgotten some mathematical formulas in the fourth-form syllabus. I still have one more chapter, which is the only one I repulse out of the 15 chapters, to go -Statistics. I'd always solve a stat question begrudgingly. I hope it'll be different this time around because I can't afford to conjure aversive emotions toward questions during the quiz as the allocated time might be insufficient. It would also be a tad abnormal to do so.

I asked the teacher if the chances of there being a question requiring us to plot a graph were high and her reply had been, "Yes, very high." Snap. If a graph question were to be asked, it would quite likely be in accordance with Statistics as ogives and/or histograms carry a lot of marks. Aye.

I hope the formulas remain swimming in my head until Wednesday; or better yet, until the end of the year. And I also hope the Additional Mathematics formulas don't get mixed up with the Physics formulas in my head. That would be bad.
