This is so racist. I am an ASIAN TEEN, I got 80% and this is just racist as can be. It is racist, even if it were made by an Asian KID, he is suggesting that Asian kids are smarter than other kids, which is racist as can be!! I doubt a KID made that, made that entire quiz, including the images since it looks more professional than my high school site (no offense to the high school students who made the site)!!!

I am Asian and sadly, we aren`t taught half of this in school before 5th.
Even though it does make me feel wierded out that so many of you don`t know what radians are or sine is.

Anyway I can confirm that we don`t learn Social Sciences including civics, history, geography and economics before 6th, nor do we even get to the point to know integers that well. And chemistry is totally out of the question, we don`t even know what an electron is then to know noble materials. Sine and radians is a little too much for us in the 5th grade.

"Are you Smarter than a Fifth Grader" is so funny because it`s be about nine questions that say something to the affect of, "Is the equator a line of Latitude or Longitude?" or, "The product of 1/2 and 3 5/8 is-". Then it will have a question near the end like, "The birthday of Andrew Carnegie`s wife is-". At which point I will stare at the TV and ask, how the hell would anyone know that unless someone told them that this morning, *points to the fifth grader*

Because you don`t just learn about your own country..
anyhoo.. I find the smarter than a 5th grader a little unfair (the tv show too) because these kids are being taught that now, most of us would of know this stuff if we JUST went over it in class with in the past year or so, but most of us have been out of school for so long a lot of this stuff we don`t retain because we don`t really need to know it anymore.
When most of these kids are out of school they are going to forget a lot of this stuff also.

CrakrJak, I admit that delocalized sharing seems to be the more technical term, but you can admit you got it wrong. It`s okay.

They use pooling in some other, more complex books as well. I just didn`t link to those. I tried to, but Giggly got in my way.

No, it is the belief that race is a major factor in determining one`s intelligence, abilities, etc., period. Most everyone is a racist.

Well, I looked it up CrakrJak. In a covalent bond, electrons are shared, meaning they are combined together and become indistinguishable. In a metallic bond, electrons are pooled, meaning they are free to float around in a "pool" and share the same space, but do not actually combine, so there is a difference. It took me about 8 different websites to find this out, but the point is pooling and sharing are not the same thing. Here are a couple: Look at pic on bottom left of 1st page

OK, my sister (in P6, or 6th grade) was not taught sines, metallic bonds and radiants in Primary School.

Metallic bonding is the electromagnetic interaction between delocalized electrons, called conduction electrons, and the metallic nuclei within metals. Understood as the sharing of "free" electrons among a lattice of positively-charged ions (cations), - Source Wiki

Metalic Bonds

CrakrJak: pretty sure that by shared, they meant just a pair of electrons is shared, like in a covalent bond, and by pooling, they meant all the valence electrons form a sea of delocalised electrons so ALL the electrons are pooled together, like in a metallic bond

SuperSmash: "Sharing" was the answer is chose (It was one of the three available), Since they mean the same thing then my answer counts as right.

I`ve never heard of "pooling" of electron bonds ever. The correct term is "Shared" or "Sharing".

davymid: I have a science degree and read a lot of science journals. Built my own computers and actually know what all those buttons on a ti-85 are for.

When scientists guess they call them "theories".
Scientists should be skeptical of their own theories, Instead they are treating them like irrefutable facts. That`s bad science.

CrakrJak, pooling and shared mean the same thing. You should be able to figure that out. If none of the other answers made sense and "pooling" was the only response left, you should have been able to figure out the right answer. If you went shopping for a mug and all they had were coffee cups, would you be totally lost?

They`re called synonyms.

So, 90%

"*This test is not racist because it was created by an Asian kid. "

Aside from this test being pathetically easy, it IS racist. Just because you are a particular race, you are not exempt from being a racist if you have a bias for/against them.

Also, `effective education` to them is: cram as much into your head as you can so that you`ll `know` what to do in life.

other than the metallic bond one, which I only remembered because I remembered that the first one is a covalent bond and used process of elimination, this test really wasn`t hard for a University-educated adult at all. Also the one about continents depends on whether Eurasia is defined as one continent or two (Europe and Asia)

80%...

those questions weren`t really even that good. Maybe i have trouble with that word problem, but that doesn`t mean i can`t find the integral of sin^2x from the interval 0 to 3

Big deal, I knew all that stuff when I was forced to study it back in school. Most of those questions are of no use to me now, also as the mime stated, I doubt radians are taught at fifth grade.

Oh yeah, only got 60%

Just because the test is given to 5th graders absolutely doesn`t mean that they get everything right >.>

no offense but i doubt a 5th grader knew most of those questions, as radians is taught until 9th-10th grade
