Young lord, there's a river ahead. Should we get some rest for a while?
It looks like a good day today, young lord.
Let's rest for a while, Agelaus. We need to take some time off before continuing.
My father has been doing well all the time, young lord.
You're right, Agelaus. By the way, how was your father?
By the way, Agelaus, how was my father when he was still my age?
I see! I am quite nervous right now because of my math class.
Let's stop at the temple of Athena to pray for wisdom, Agelaus.
After taking their break near the riverbank, the two headed to the temple of Athena.
Oh King Priam, your father was indeed as noble as you, young lord.
Don't mind it, young lord. Let's pray to the Gods that you will do well in your class tomorrow.
As you wish, young lord.
Yes, Agelaus. After 2 hours of traveling, we are here at last.
We are now here at the temple of Athena, young lord. The main temple of the goddess is at the top of the mountain. We should head there.
In front of the temple of Athena
Yes, young lord. I will wait here for you.
After that, Paris entered the temple and asked Athena for guidance and wisdom.
Wait for me here outside Agelaus. I'll just pray quickly to Goddess Athena.
Inside the temple of Athena
After offering his prayer to the goddess, When he was about to open his eyes, he was already in front of the Gods and Goddesses.
Oh goddess Athena, I am hereby offering my worship to you to ask for your guidance and wisdom so that I will do well in math class today. May you watch me every time.
Welcome to Mt. Olympus, Paris. We summoned you here for an important task.
In order for you to decide, we will give the goddess their best offer for you to choose them and award the golden apple.
Where am I? This pressure.. this pressure is enough to crumble me down to the ground.
Mount Olympus? A task? Don't tell me you're Zeus, right?
Yes, you are right. He is Zeus, the supreme god. You are called here to decide who among these goddesses will receive the golden apple.
I am Athena. Paris, if you choose me, I will bless you with the wisdom you want.
Paris, I am Hestia. If you choose me, I will make you become a genius in architecture and astrology.
All of your offers are all tempting, but I think this golden apple will be given to Aphrodite.
My name is Aphrodite. If you choose me, I will give you the most beautiful mortal ever to exist.
Paris, I am Demeter. If you choose me, I will provide you with a bountiful harvest all throughout your life.
After the wedding celebration, Paris was sent back to the mortal realm, and Aphrodite used her might to help Paris get Helen, the most beautiful woman on earth.
News? Ah yes, young lord. Recently, your school, the Academia de Parthenon, posted an announcement that if anyone could answer the weekly question, they would be given a chance to date Helen.
How did your prayer go, young lord? I was worried when I entered the temple, and I couldn't find you anywhere.
Yes, young lord.
Ah erm, it went fine. By the way, have you received any news recently?
Helen? You mean the campus crush in the academy?
Young lord, we arrived safely at the palace. Your mentor is already waiting for you in the fireplace.
It is my honor and pleasure, young lord.
Thank you for your service, Agelaus. I do have fun traveling with you. I can't wait to learn math now.
I'll be heading inside now.
Inside the palace, specifically, in the prince's room.
Ahm erm ahm, I guess I'm doing great as a teacher.
Good day, teacher. How are you?
Are you sure? It seems it won't work well.
I'm just fine, Paris. How was your study when I was not in the palace?
I'm sure, teacher. So, what are we going to learn today?
Yeah, I think it was initiated by the Sociedad de Mathematica.
So, what are we waiting for? Let's start now with your home review.
You know it already. There's a weekly post at your school .
Today, we will be learning about the sequence.
Do you remember the shape of the beehive?
What is the connection between the beehive and learning sequences?
A sequence? I haven't encountered that one teacher. Can you elaborate?
As you can see Paris, nature follows a pattern. One of the examples is the beehive. At first, there is a single hexagonal cell. Then it is followed by 6 hexagonal cells, followed by 36, and so on.
Another example is the shell of the snail. Its shell follows the pattern of a golden ratio.
Are you still listening to me, Paris? Why are you spacing out like that?
I see. Well then, let's continue. Before that, shall we give the readers some examples found in nature that have a pattern?
I agree with you, teacher. It's unfair for me to learn all by myself. Why not include our readers?
Yes, Teacher. I was just imagining what you had said earlier.
I didn't expect that our readers would be intelligent. You all impressed me.
Don't be disheartened, my student. You will improve and master it sooner or later.
I am ashamed that I am the prince but my knowledge of math is just so-so compared to theirs.
I just can't accept it, teacher, but I will try my best.
Let's continue, my dear student. For this day, we will be exploring sequences only: how to identify them and some real-life examples of sequences.
Imagine that inside a farm there are four plots. In each plot, you could only plant an odd number of seedlings. You were given 68 seedlings, with 5 seedlings to be planted in the first plot and 8 seedlings for each plot. How many seedlings would be planted in the fourth plot?
Sorry, teacher. I can't really imagine it.
Teacher, I think I need the help of the readers right now.
I think that would be 29?
I got it. Hmm, yeah, that's nice. Despite the fact that I am only guessing hehehe
Good job Paris. You got it! Let's go outside and I will tell you something interesting.
That won't do, Paris. You should learn it by yourself.
As you can see from the structure of that tree, it follows a certain pattern from its branches even with its leaves. Just remember this one, Paris, that nature is a good example of patterns and that following a definite pattern is an example of a sequence.
Do you see that tree Paris?
What about that tree teacher?
Goodbye, teacher. See you in the next 3 days.
Thank you, teacher. I have learned a lot today about sequences.
After the teacher left the palace, Paris is busy mastering the lesson and will answer the first posted questions at his school.
I'll be back in the next three days for your next lesson.
It's good that you understood what I'm talking about for these past hours.
