MATHS FROM OUTER SPACE

A new way of learning that's out of this world!

Become a learning pioneer! Maths From Outer Space wants to redefine what it means to be human! Our scientists have found a way to enhance the spatial and logic capabilities of the human body. By synthesizing earth-based proteins with DNA from our other-worldly friends, the MFOS program will enhance your natural physical and mental capabilities. In other words, we've found a way to make you smarter! Would you like to see if you are qualified to take part in this exciting endeavor?

The participant can then take a quiz to see if they qualify, or register for updates from MNU.

### [edit] Take Quiz

Aptitude Test Introduction: We are glad that you've decided to take part in our test! This is a rather simple mathematics exercise consisting of 10 questions. Each question will become harder as you progress through the exercise. Click BEGIN TEST to start your exercise, and good luck!

- Getting any of the questions wrong will give this message:

Sorry, you answered X/10 correctly. It appears that you are below our baseline standards for this program. However, you may qualify for other MNU initiatives. Please register below for more details.

- Getting all 10 correct gives a congratulatory message:

Congratulations, you answered 10/10 correctly. It appears that you are well within our baseline standards for this program. Please press continue for further enrollment details.

- The button used to lead to a 404 error screen on MNU.com. (The original URL was entered wrong by the creator of the site. The "index.html" should not have been placed in the URL, which caused the URL to bring up the "404 Error" screen. -- incidentally, it still shows a 404)

- The human answer for
**Differentiate y = (x^3 + 5x + 1)(3x + 2)**is 12x^3 + 6x^2 + 30x + 13 and this answer is not listed. The correct Space Math answer can be found above. - Some of the answers appear as coordinates (x,y) but should be sets {x1,x2}.
