Look into the Vedic Math then. You don't need to know algebra to use it. You can amaze teachers and get answers quicker.
Just hide it for at least a year, don't show off what you do just use it while you get sharp.
 
Are you doing the same old word problems or are you getting pre-algebra term learning about points and lines, basic fundamental stuff that maybe seems pointless and boring? This is like building muscle by lifting weights, it gets -easier- if you keep at it and just ahead of class by reading ahead so you know at least halfways what's being shown before you walk in.

If you want to be a EE, you need higher math and being only 12 means you can still catch that ship. Calculus in HS gives you 4 semesters to learn what college shovels at you in 2. That reading ahead thing? That's a must in college, ask your Dad,

Your sketch can sense ongoing process events in time.
Your sketch can make events to control it over time.

I will look into Vedic Math. Unfortunately, the school system in India is very result focused. Everyone is interested in higher marks, and care less about application of Math. Yes, the math problems are word problems, mostly random and boring.

I am looking forward to learn Trigonometry and also Calculus, which I know is used in AI also. I think projects like the one I am doing will really show me how to use math.

That's a great idea. I will learn how to do this and add it to my videos.
When you add &t=nnns (where nnn is the video timestamp in seconds) to the end of the video URL. opening that URL will jump to that timestamp in the video. You can also get the URL by pausing the video at the point where you want the link to jump to, clicking "Share", and then checking the box next to "Start at..."

The Vedic Math is -old- more than 1000 years old tradition, these are the people who came up with the concept of a number 0. These are the people who the Arabs indirectly got algebra from. The methods are based on how numbers work, applications of math themselves.

It is not some new political thing of the modern Indian educational system.

As long as your system is giving you pap, you might as well look this up and learn something real.

"and being only 12 means 'you can still' catch that ship."

Oh my, things have changed since I was 12   ;)

If you need clarification, ask for help.

It depends. 12 in 6th grade or 7th, 7th pre-algebra and up allows calculus in HS if there's a class at all. Otherwise it's catch it when you take engineering or science later on.

12 is when they gave my class 'The Test'. The Test determined the track we would be on for the rest of our school years, and well, beyond if one didn't take steps to correct for this failed social experiment. HR, I know it seems boring, but math really is the key to all science, engineering and technology in general.
What, I need to say something else too?

I had a buddy who transferred in 8th grade and hadn't gotten pre-algebra. He ended up dropping a track from test level.

It was an evil system. I transferred schools and was underwater in math all through high school. Made up for it in college by taking at least 1 math class every semester. My advisor angrily asked me why I was taking topology - he said it would never have any application to chemistry.

I changed advisors that semester.

Looks like some good topics. I might have to break down and try that newfangled video-learnin' thing. ;)
