Euler Piruleta Vs. The Fuel's Bill + Exam Results

We're moving faster now! :D






Don't forget to review the sequences for the exam ;) It is possible to download here the solutions to last "Thursday test", so you can check those exercises.

Euler Piruleta is learning Nordic Skiing. Yesterday, he went with some friends to Abodi and in the return journey, the five people in the same car were thinking about how to divide among them the fuel’s bill. They have decided to proceed as follows:

The owner of the car has to pay half the money the rest will pay.

Or what is the same…

The four people who are travelling with the owner of the car have to pay twice what the owner will have to pay.

The fuel’s bill ascends to 56.88, so Euler has to solve these three problems:

a)     How much money will the owner have to pay?

b)     How much money will the rest of the 4 accompanies will have to pay?

c)      Find an equation that will help you to solve directly similar situations for a group of n people (this is, 1 driver and n-1 non-drivers) and for any amount of money M.

Deadline: Monday the 8th of April. As usual, you can either send me and e-mail or hand in the solution at class ;) The printable version is also available!

Have a nice Easter Week!!!

PS: REMEMBER YOU HAVE UNTIL JUNE TO CREATE YOUR OWN VIDEOCLIPS WITH SONGS ABOUT THE SECOND ORDER EQUATION'S FORMULA! :D
- Those videos should feature yourselves singing the song like in a real videoclip.
- It would be great if you also manage to include the lyrics ;)

Isaba's News

How are you doing? The weather is better than expected and we've been able to skii the 3 days so far :D

Eduardo has told me that (most of) you have done an incredible job with the Triangle Sessions! Congratulations!! I'M VERY PROUD OF YOU! ^_^

Here are the solutions to the extra worksheet. Remember that these are exercises for reviewing what you have already studied, so don't worry if you don't manage to do all of them ;)

Best regards!! Seeing you soon!

Download the solutions here!

Some of you might remember this song from last year's White Week... it was one of the hits I chose for waking you up :P MUAHAHAHAH!!!

Euler Piruleta Vs. Gloomy Boy

What an intense week we've had... :P

Here are some of the great moments we had building the first T-9's.









Click here to download all the pictures at once!

Now everything has been settled and prepared for the next week. Remember that it's vital to glue them with care and thoroughly. Take your time, we're not in a hurry and do the tasks you feel more confortable with :D



Furthermore, I'm afraid this week has also been quite intense for our beloved Euler Piruleta. Gloomy Boy has threatened him with a long life of gloom, darkness and sadness, unless he manages to solve an ancient mystery: The Damned Triangle!!



First Question: Would you be able to write the next arrow? How do we move from one arrow to the next one?



Second Question: Calculate the addition of all the terms for each arrow. Can you tell the value of the addition of the numbers in the 20th arrow without calculating the arrow? Is it possible to write those numbers as a sequence?

Third Question: Complete the triangle to the 15th arrow and then, colour those numbers which are even... which is the amazing figure you get?



Watch it!: This is 2nd term's last challenge. You may get 1 or 2 extra positives depending on the accuracy of your answers. You can mail them to me with the answers, drawings and anything you think you should include or take it handwritten to my deske at the Department of Mathematics.

Deadline: March the 10th. Printable version here!

Now it's time to relax whilst listening to a lovely and beatiful song ^_^

Oi!!! And don't forget to download this forthcoming summer's greatest hit!! 


PS: Sergio, Iñaki G, Jorge, Tania, Ivan and Carlos have been awarded with the "Where is the father" positive. Iñaki A, Ivan, Angel, Raquel, Carlos, Jorge, Iñaki G, Juan, Daniel and Tania have been awarded with the "Impossible Path" positive. Congrats! :D
