"The idea of proof has always held a real fascination for me. The process of starting from a simple set of axioms and deriving almost any mathematical truth (putting Godel to one side) is what truly separates Mathematics from any other subject. It is the closest we can ever get to absolute truth, and Maths is a good deal of fun. I have tried to extend my Maths as much as possible beyond the classroom more...

"The idea of proof has always held a real fascination for me. The process of starting from a simple set of axioms and deriving almost any mathematical truth (putting Godel to one side) is what truly separates Mathematics from any other subject. It is the closest we can ever get to absolute truth, and Maths is a good deal of fun. I have tried to extend my Maths as much as possible beyond the classroom, and whenever I do so I uncover either some completely new and intriguing area of Mathematics or a very neat trick I hadn't thought of in more familiar territory. I got full marks in midterm in Maths and Chemistry. I love the process of solving Maths problems, which taught me a lot about thinking about problems creatively. Among the mathematical books I have read, I enjoyed "Godel, Escher, Bach", which gives a good grounding in axiomatic reasoning and formal systems, while at the same time pointing out their major flaw. I also liked "To infinity and beyond" by Eli Maor, which deals with the concept of infinity, its implications and its paradoxes, both in Maths and elsewhere. I find Critical Thinking especially relevant as it is about the construction of sound logical arguments, an art lying at the heart of Mathematics in proof. I have acheived an A grade in all modules across all my subjects. In my spare time, I like doing jigsaw puzzles.After I finish my 500 pieces puzzles,I would post it on the wall of my house. As a volunteer, I am involved in a year seven Maths mentoring scheme and help at a homeless shelter. I enjoy travelling, and I have been to Japan,China,Korea,and Kyrgyzstan.I lived in China from the ages of 12to 19, and learnt to adapt to a new language and culture. I very much look forward to become a maths tutor." less...
