## How to Practice Mathematics as an Art

### Kutay discusses two starting points on how students can practice mathematics as an art.

A couple years ago, I was truly fascinated by 3Blue1Brown's videos. It was actually his video on an unexpected result that came from colliding blocks that really captured me in the art of mathematics. I couldn't believe that two simple blocks would produce $\pi = 3.1415926535897...$

## The Results of My Life's Last Two Years are Out

### Kutay talks about his results after his journey taking the IB diploma programme.

As some of you readers may know, I was an IB student for the last two years and got my diploma a couple weeks ago, on July 6th. I'm dedicating this post to discussing my results, talking about each subject, discussing how I studied those subjects, and where I'll be attending university. Let's start with my HL subjects.

## Why Do People Just Hate Mathematics

### Kutay talks about why he thinks people just hate mathematics, finding teaching of mathematics the main culprit.

In my latest post on why mathematics, as a research area, is lonely, I talked about why people just hate mathematics shortly but wanted to write another post, and here I am. In there, I mentioned how our society is kind of divided into two: the ones that are good at mathematics and the ones that are not good at mathematics. I also alluded to how our teaching of mathematics in schools are terrible. In this post, I'm going to expand on what I talked in the other post, giving additional insights.

## Why Mathematics is Lonely

### Kutay gives insights into why mathematics may be "lonely" and why that might not be the case.

After a really long time, I am finally writing a post that is essay-esque, which will be about why I think mathematics is lonely. I watched a video about on this, and I wanted to write about it too (maybe in more depth). Note that I am not a maths student (I will be majoring in computer science next year), but I think I can give some insights around the topic. I found a couple reasons to why mathematics is lonely—around our culture and even between mathematicians—and why there is some hope.

## Who am I Anymore? An IB (upd on leaks)

### Kutay's update on the leaks happened through the IB exams for the M24 cohort.

The last couple of months (four) have been... *tiring*, at the very least. I had two mocks over the last one and a half months, and I am now having the "real deal." It is really stressful since I HAVE to get a 776 at HLs. My mocks went really well (6s and 7s at everything), but now I'm not sure how I'm going to do on the real ones.
