I discovered this forum in a search for interesting logic puzzles and programming exercises; ever since then, I have meandered through each of the quirky sections and found many topics discussed that interest me and many people after my own heart. I have always loved solving that challenge math problem, writing that tricky program (like a word processor), cracking that seemingly impossible code, and this seems like a great place to talk with people that have similar interests. It probably is also a good place to start getting into topics that have previously eluded me, such as calculus, and hone my skills in areas that I already know, such as trigonometry.
By the way, I am going into ninth grade.
Here's a fairly simple code to crack:
Hydrogen Iodine. Holmium Tungsten Argon Yttrium Oxygen Uranium?
