Imagine the following situation: a bomb is set in Taconera’s Park and you are the only on capable of dismantling it. Spanish CSI Special Agent  Euler Piruleta requires your services and you find yourself before this bomb…

Only 4 minutes are left before the bomb explodes and the only way of stopping it is placing a bottle filed with 4 gallons of water in a balance. You have a 3-gallon and a 5-gallon bottle and a fountain with a continuous stream of water…

How can you get those 4 gallons inside one bottle using the 3-gallon and 5-gallon bottles?

Second Challenge and Exam Results

How are you doing? I've only received 3 answer to last week's challenge. I've noticed that more ore less you know what the solution has to do with, but they're a little bit inaccurate.. Anyway, since you've come quite close, Alba, Patricia and Bea have won a Challenge's Possitive ^_^

The solution is quite simple:

- If $1<a$, then it holds that $\sqrt{a} <a$
- If $0 < a <1$, then it is true that $\sqrt{a} >a$
- As Patricia correctly stressed, we have two special cases: $\sqrt{1}=1$ and $\sqrt{0})=0$.

You can try with your calculator to check the answers ^_^

Second Challenge: Romeo and Juliet

These two snails are Romeo and Juliet. Juliet has been waiting in her balcony for her lover‘s arrival, but Romeo has just had dinner and he has truly forgotten the number of Juliet’s house. Every square represents one house (64 in all, including Romeo’s and Juliet’s) and the passionate lover will visit every single house one time and one time only before reaching to Juliet.

 You must try to help him to find his way but be careful… he is only allowed to move upwards, downwards, to the left, to the right and diagonally.

One more thing:  You are only entitled to use up to 20 straight lines… it seems our little fellow is not keen at all about turning on corners…

The procedure is the same as always: send me an e-mail with the solution and post a comment to this entry. This challenge's deadline is  October the 19th. Ony the first 10 valid solutions will get a positive!! Don't miss the chance!

Printable version HERE!

Tip: The best way to try to solve this is copying the image to gimp, paint or a similar software and draw the lines over it.

Einstein's Challenge

Can a child become elder than his own father?

Albert Einstein was the one who proved that time itself does not always pass in the same way (“time is relative, you know”), and he came up with a little problem so ordinary people could understand his postulation:


Some astronauts that were travelling through the space in a futuristic vessel, managed to reach a speed close to The Speed of The Light.  These astronauts would not become older as fast as their fellows on Earth.

If A stands for their age when they started their journey, t stands for the time and Av for the astronauts’ age at any time; we have the following expression (which is nothing but an affine function)

 Av = 0,3t + A

Imagine that one of them left in the year 2000 being 20 years old…

a) Get his real age measured using Earth’s Timeline in both the years 2010 and 2020.

b) When will he become a 25-years-old person?

c) If his son was born the on the same day as he enrolled in this mission, how old will this child be when his father gets to his 30s?

Deadline: 10th of May

Our favourite Childhood Songs + Homework + Challenge

Download a brand new tricky challenge ^_^

Homework: exercices 9, 12, 14, 17, 20, 21, 23 (due next Monday)

I guess you all may have seen the latest VisionLab comercial on TV. I couldn't help recalling some of the old songs I used to love as a child (ages 4 to 8). I would like to share some of them with you so you will all realize how tendencies have changed :P

Vision Lab Comercial:

"Super Disco Chino" and "La Gallina Cocouaua" by Enrique y Ana: 

This is the song the comercial above has been inspired by. This strange duet managed to hit several nº1 hits in the 8 years they were together.
"El Intermedio" used this 80's hit to create one of his hilarious video :D  Click here!

They separated in 1984 and while Ana decided to focus on her studies, Enrique kept on singing and colaborating in some TV shows. Two years ago I did realize who Enrique really was nowadays... and it hit me out! I am talking about Enrique del Pozo (La Noria, Aquí hay Tomate, DEC...)

"Co co ua ua" includes an amazing EXTRA XD

Have you ever heard of Bom Bom Chip? They became quite famous after their Leticia-Sabater-hosted debut in the early 90's with some famous hits as "Toma Mucha Fruta" and "Multiplícate por cero" XD

If you find this interesting (and FUN), let me know and I'll share more "oldies" with you XD

Now it's your time: do you remember any of the "children songs" you used to like 8 or 9 years ago?

Equations & Systems solutions + The Pilgrim's Challenge

Hi guys! I've just finished writing the solutions of the bulletin I uploaded a week ago with the equations and systems exercices to practice... I beg you to try to solve them before checking the solutions, so your neuron works a little bit... but, don't work too hard since it might get stressed!! (yes, I'm trying to sound sarcastic XD)

Click HERE to get the solutions.

Here's a new challenge I discovered a few days ago. I solved it at my journey from Pamplona to Pontevedra, involving no more than 5 minutes, so I guess you'll have no trouble at all trying to face it :D

The Pilgrim’s Problem

An Italian pilgrim was planning his journey from Rome to Santiago de Compostela. Before arriving to Spain, he wanted to visit 64 different cities using only 15 straight pilgrimages. The map he was currently in possession of, showed the different paths communicating all the cities he wanted to visit.  


Would you be able to draw a path using 15 straight lines without removing the pencil from the sheet so the pilgrim manages to complete successfully his trip?

Watch it: You MUST start your trip from the black spot, but you can finish it wherever you want. Note there’s one missing connection between two towns at the bottom of the drawing.

Hi class!:) Yesterday was Tuesday 14th of february 2012 ,it was cloudy and a little bit rainy and snowing...but wasn´t a sad day becouse it was valentines day!For people in love happy valentines day;)

Today we started the lesson with a fotocopy to review the Arithmetic Sequences, then we have done the exercises of the fotocopy and for the book: 8, 9, 45, 46, 47 and 48. They were very similars and repetitives.Also we have laern what is an Arithmetic Progresion.

What is a Arithmetic Progresion?
-In the fotocopy:
Arithmetic Progresion is a sequence of numbers such that the difference of any two successive terms of the squence is a constant(i.e., always the same number).That constant is called difference (d). Had one term of an Arithmetic Progresion been given, you would have just to add that difference to move to the next term.
An Arithmetic Progresion is a squence such that:-In the wikipedia:
An arithmetic progression (AP) or arithmetic sequence is a sequence of numbers such that the difference between the consecutive terms is constant. For instance, the sequence 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, … is an arithmetic progression with common difference 2.

If the initial term of an arithmetic progression is a1 and the common difference of successive members is d, then the nth term of the sequence is given by:

7/2/12 Lesson

The last day we started a new unit: Successions and Progressions. Mario says that this we should study every day if we want to learn it. We wrote an index for the unit and then we started with point 1, Successions and General Terms. We had to write a lot of theory stuff. We learned when successions were and and how to find the number that occupies x position in it. The formula with we use for this is called general term. The different types of successions depend on the general term:
  • When it the general term doesn't depend on other terms. An example of this are the natural numbers.
  • Recurrent successions: the general term depends on other terms. We will learn more about these later on.
  • Successions without general term, like pi's decimals.
Then we did excersises 1 and 4. I hope that this unit won't be very difficult.

Tuesday 31 of January 2012

Hi class! Today is Tuesday 31 of January 2012, it's cloudy and a little bit rainy... It's a sad day.

Today we started the lesson correcting the homework, the exercises 64 and 73. Then we have done the exercises 74, 77, 80 and 66(c and d). They were very difficult and long.

We have not behave very good, because we were very talkatives, but it have not been the worst day...

The exam of the units we have studied is on Wednesday 8 of February 2012 and Mario wants to do it impossible for us, so STUDY!

Homework: Exercise 66: a, b and e.

This is not maths, but if you love internet, and you want to preserve it like you know it, you can spend a few minutes of your time reading this...

Do you know what is SOPA? Well, here we have a law which is WORST.  Here is a video of the explanation of the ACTA Law , a new law that the governments want to aprove, and if they do it, the internet as we know it, will desappear...

But we can keep hopeful, because many people is manifesting against this laws, and groups of hackers like anonymus are fighting against this...

Frikimaths: Maths lesson (17.01.10)

Hello class first i need to say that i posted this so late because i taked so much time to find how to post this... XD. First we have corrected Mario´s homework. For Example: 3/4x^2+4/5x=0. It was a easy one.
Then we have done some second grade ecuations in class with Mario´s help.
Examples(here we needed to clear x and x+1) (exercise 75) : x^2-(x+1)^2=567
x= 283

I dont know more to post so this is all, i don´t know th homework beause i forgetted the agenda in class XD. See you next time!

January 10, 2012

Today's lesson (10.01.12)

Hi class! Today we should have continued with the working group but yesterday we carry very badly and Mario was angered. Mario has explained the three cases there is for solving second degree equations.
First case:
For example: 4$x^{2}$-36=0
We have to clear x^2:
And the value of x^2 is:
√(9 )=±3
Second case:
For example: 7$x^{2}$-6x=0
We remove the common factor:
The two solutions are:
x=0 x=6/7
Third case:
For example: 8$x^{2}$=0
The only solution for this type of equations is: 0.

And finally we have done an exercise with many steps to solve a quadratic equation, but Mario has told us that there is a formula that helps us to avoid having to do all these steps.
The homework is learn this formula. I hope you have understood it.
