Alex's Second Place / First Day Of NNV Math Club



Song:  The Logical Song

Group:  Supertramp




Alex participated in another high school math competition on Saturday.

Although Alex had really placed second...
for whatever reason, the third placer was given second place.

After the award ceremony...
Alex looked over the score sheets and had found the, quite visible, mistake.

Alex had shown the error to the competition organizer...
and he was then given a second place ribbon...
of course...most everyone else had gone home by then  :(

However...
Alex rarely shows disappointment.

He had accepted his ribbon with grace, and moved on.



This was Alex's belated ribbon.


Today was the first day of NNV Math Club practice since ARML 2016.

It had moved back to a place where they used to have practice.

Hopefully...
they will remain here.

There is plenty of room in the classroom...
and there are plenty of places for the parents to eat and relax during 
the two hour practice sessions.


As Alex had arrived early...
he and another student went to a shooting gallery simulator.




After a couple of rounds of fun...
they both went back to the classroom and awaited the other math club members.


I went to a place to eat...
and I then walked around the outside mall for a while.


After walking around for a bit...
I went back inside.



Alex was working on a problem here.


Each member had chosen a problem from the previous competition to solve.

For those of whom had competed...
they had chosen ones they had missed.

After Alex's math club practice...
we finished up the day with more driving practice.

Alex has greatly improved with his highway merging.

One thing which Alex has a lot of...
is mental stamina and endurance.


Alex loves learning new things...
and he never hesitates to apply himself.
