Web Development Tutorial Part 5 – CSS

Posted November 15th, 2014 by

So having completed Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4 of this series of web development tutorials, we’re finally able to actually construct a webpage. Now I said that we’d look at CSS in this tutorial, and we will, but first off let’s build a basic webpage that we can use to experiment with later.

Maths Methods Exam 2

Posted November 6th, 2014 by

And so concludes my 2014 unit 3 & 4 VCE exams. Exam 2 was reasonably easy, although I probably made some stupid mistakes – I most likely got something around 78/80, but we’ll see eventually.

There wasn’t anything particularly difficult in this exam. I thought it was easier than last year’s exam 2, but some of the multiple choice needed a bit of thinking. This did have some different questions that hadn’t been seen in an exam for a while, and Tasmania Jones’s question was rather lack-luster in my opinion – he didn’t even have to escape a vat of acid or anything, all he did was observe an ice-block for 21 years.

But that’s the exam, and now all my assessment for Mathematical Methods is complete. All I have to deal with now is a bunch of unit 1 & 2 exams. Shouldn’t be too hard, except maybe the GMA exam which will no doubt be more difficult than the exam I just did today.

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

Maths Methods Exam 1

Posted November 5th, 2014 by

So I have now completed the 2014 Mathematical Methods (CAS) Exam 1 paper. It wasn’t too hard, although I made a stupid mistake on the very last part of the last question – I forgot to subtract 8 from my answer, which means I wrote 25 instead of 17. Oh well, it’s just one mark, and 39/40 is still pretty good.

Tomorrow I have Exam 2, which means I won’t be making any arithmetic errors – having a calculator makes that a lot easier.

We’ll see how it goes. Let’s hope 50 raw is still a possibility (even if it’s a small one)

Exams

Posted November 4th, 2014 by

So tomorrow (Wednesday) and Thursday, I’ll be sitting Mathematical Methods (CAS) Exam 1 and Exam 2 respectively – and so will a whole lot of people across the state of Victoria. Today, being Melbourne Cup day, is a public holiday, so I’m able to stay home and presumably do lots more practice exams in preparation for tomorrow.

At least VCAA exams should be a piece of cake compared to the likes of Kilbaha. We’ll see how it goes I suppose.

Oh, and I haven’t yet mentioned that I’m 2015 GWSC Music Captain – or Co-Music Captain, since there are two of us. I wonder if this will be motivation for me to actually put something in the currently empty Music section of this website… Maybe someday soon.

That’s all for now. I’m still writing the next couple of web development tutorials, but as you can imagine, I’m kind of busy at the moment. More blogging to come at a later date.
