# School

##### Posted October 9th, 2014 by Jason N

So I haven’t written anything for quite a while, but I will get around to the next part of the web development tutorial eventually. At the moment, however, there’s a lot of stuff going on at school, as well as preparation for 3 & 4 exams. Probability is still the worst part of Maths Methods, but all in all, most practice exams have been reasonably easy (although some of them have some mistakes, which hopefully won’t be the case for the real exams).

I also have a school captain election and the Glenny’s Got Talent competition to deal with (i.e. a lot of clashes), so this term’s going to be a little hectic. Happily, it’s the last one of the year.

That’s all for now. More blogging (and tutorials) to come at a later date.

# No more Maths Methods SACs

##### Posted September 14th, 2014 by Jason N

So Friday marked the completion of the final Mathematical Methods (CAS) 3&4 SAC for the course. It was a reasonably easy SAC on Probability, though I made a mistake in one part of it, forgetting that $Var\left(4X+5\right)={4}^{2}Var\left(X\right)$. Oh well, it won't really make a difference in the grand scheme of things anyway. At least it's over now - or at least until the exams in November. I reckon I should be able to get a pretty damn good SAC score, although it'll only be worth 34% of the total marks for the subject.

I thought I’d start writing some new tutorials, as I haven’t written any in quite some time. Perhaps a set of HTML tutorials or something, since the old one no longer exists after the loss of data.

That’s all for now. More blogging to come at a later date.

# September

##### Posted September 2nd, 2014 by Jason N

So it’s been September for a little while now, and although the weather outside would disagree, it now appears to be spring. What this really means is that my Mathematical Methods exam is now approaching and I’m to do more revision and the like for the subject. At least it’s only one subject that I really need to be focussing on, rather than the five that I’ll have to deal with next year.

Lately I’ve been doing some programming. Specifically, I’ve been experimenting with lua through making my own alterations to my friend Andrew’s work-in-progress game, Rainbow Arena. That’s been a lot of fun, and an interesting learning experience.

I’ve also been tinkering with D, and trying to get various bindings for libraries I want working with it. I quite like it; it’s familiar to me because of its similarity to C, C++ and Java.

Hopefully I’ll have more to say at a later date. More blogging to come.

# School

##### Posted August 5th, 2014 by Jason N

So I haven’t really updated this website in a while, mostly because school takes too much time… On Thursday, I have one test and two SACs: a Chemistry test, a General Maths Advanced SAC on matrices and a Physics SAC on forces. Since it’s term 3, it’s probably going to get even more busy since this is when all the stuff is supposed to get done. Luckily, Friday is a curriculum day, so I can spend the eighth day of the eight month at home.

I’ve been doing a bit more computer and electronics -related stuff, but nothing to write about really; I’ll have to think of something more interesting to do. I’m still without music content, I know, but I’ll get on to that soon, or perhaps ‘eventually’ would be a more accurate word.

That’s all for now, more blogging to come at a later date.

# Holidays

##### Posted June 30th, 2014 by Jason N

So end-of-term holidays started a little while ago, which means two weeks free from the hassles of school assignments and SACs. Speaking of SACs, I've learned that I got 100% for the second skills test (i.e. SAC 4) for Maths Methods... I could've gotten 100% on SAC 3 as well, but for some reason I decided to write $\genfrac{}{}{0.1ex}{}{8\pi }{9}$ instead of $\genfrac{}{}{0.1ex}{}{8}{9\pi }$. Oh well, 99% will have to do.

This holidays I plan to actually put some music stuff on the music page (you know, in place of the current ‘no content’ page)… We’ll see how that actually pans out soon.

Other stuff I’m planning to do is write more programs, because I haven’t really done any real programming for quite some time. If I write anything interesting, I’ll put it up here.

That’s all for now.
