Soluna City -> Click on ďM.A.T.H. - Better get to class!Ē button,
GEARS University -> Walk into the lift -> 'Classes' button -> Right four times -> Extra -> M.A.T.H. Class
Objective: Measurements are tricky, tricky things.
Release Date: September 5th, 2014
<Character>: Back to class! Letís see here.
<Character>: What do I have next? Glad they gave us all those P.A.D.D.S. last year for our schedules and such.
<Character>: M.A.T.H. class? I donít remember signing up for that one. I wonder why itís on here.
<Character>: I should probably ask Denara whatís going on. If anyone would know, she would.
*Walk over to Denara to see whatís going on*
<Character>: Excuse me?
Denara: Yes? Do you need something?
<Character>: I was checking my schedule and for some reason I have M.A.T.H. class now?
Denara: Ah. Yes, all students are now required to take that class.
Denara: There was anÖ incidentÖ on one of the outer colonies.
<Character>: They didnít multiply properly for the amount of fuel they needed or something?
Denara: If thatís all it was it wouldnít have been an incident.
Denara: Youíll get a full explanation when you get to class.
Denara: Hurry up. Itís about to start. Just head down the hall past Advanced Combat Theory.
* Walk towards the lift and go all the way to the right until you see a ĎM.A.T.H.í signboard*
(If you speak to Aleysia:)
Aleysia: Why are you stopping to talk to me? Youíre going to be late! Go. To. Class. NOW!
<Character>: I think Iím actually on time for once!
Sarrina: Not quite. Youíre about two minutes late.
Sarrina: Luckily Iím used to waiting for stragglers who wake up late like you.
Sarrina: Take your seat and weíll start.
Everyone: *muffled laughing*
Sarrina: Thatís enough of that. Letís go, <Character>, take your seat.
Sarrina: This is Mathematical Applications of Terraforming for Habitation.
Sarrina: Itís better known as M.A.T.H. Class.
<Character>: Erm. I have a question.
Sarrina: *sigh* Yes?
<Character>: Did you use the acronym M.A.T.H. WITH the word Mathematics in it?
Sarrina: I didnít come up with that. Someone has a very bad sense of humor.
Sarrina: Now, as I was saying.
Sarrina: Something you all probably didnít know was that Loreon was Terraformed.
Sarrina: It was done hundreds of years ago, but it allowed for perfect spacing between buildings.
Sarrina: Loreon used to be uninhabitable. It was totally flat with no features and a toxic atmosphere.
Sarrina: After the process was completed there was a usable planet but the perfectly flat landscape was left.
Sarrina: This allowed for the cities to be built in a perfect geometric placement.
Sarrina: Not all terraformed planets were as nice as Loreon though.
Sarrina: Just a few weeks ago there was a colonist who decided to break one of the most important rules.
Sarrina: Does anyone know what that is?
Michael: Donít eat the berries?
Sarrina: Well, someone was paying attention to my notes on the board.
Sarrina: Yes. Never eat ANY plants or animals on a terraformed planet unless they have been cleared as safe.
<Character>: So does that mean the class is over? If thatís all this was forÖ I wonít eat any plants.
Sarrina: Nice try, but no. That was just a reason to make you all take this class.
Everyone: * Loud Groan *
Sarrina: Apparently some of you didnít want to take my class.
Sarrina: I know, using math all the time in relation to how planets are made habitable.
Sarrina: Itís a horrible and necessary thing to know.
Sarrina: Now. Since I know you all hate having to stay inside and you all want to pass and be done as soon as possible...
Sarrina: There is only one assignment.
Everyone: * Cheers *
<Character>: I donít like this. It seems Ö too Ö easy.
Sarrina: You are a smart one arenít you, <Character>...
Sarrina: Soluna was built in such a way that all the buildings are a certain distance apart.
Sarrina: You all are going to go out and measure the distance between half the buildings in town.
<Character>: Called it.
Sarrina: Off you all go. Since this class was scheduled for 3 blocks you should have plenty of time.
*Defeat some (3) students around the city when you are taking the assignment*
Sarrina: So did everyone finish?
Everyone: * Mumbling *
Sarrina: Robert, what measurements did you get?
Robert: I donít know! I thought it was 6,000 kilometers butÖ
Sarrina: Not quite. Sarah?
Sarah: 500 square miles?
Sarrina: Still no.
Sarrina: Let me guess. Everyone measured it differently in a different unit?
Everyone: ... ........... ...... ...... ...........
Sarrina: This was also part of the lesson. If you donít all use the same unit of measurement none of you will be accurate.
Sarrina: You also have to use the same type of measuring device.
Sarrina: And donít use Plex Loreon Maps next time Sarah.
Sarah: How did you knowÖ
Sarrina: You told me the distance for the entire town, not just between buildings.
Sarrina: Luckily for you all this class isnít graded, you just needed to attend it.
Sarrina: I didnít mention that? Silly me.
Sarrina: This is a required course but itís to make you aware that you canít just randomly do things.
Sarrina: Imagine if you just put some random amount of fuel in your Mecha.
Everyone: ... ........... ...... ...... ...........
Sarrina: Always pay attention to details. Always ask about the units things need to be in.
Sarrina: And, yes, donít eat random objects unless you know what they are.
Sarrina: Make sure to pick up one of the measuring devices on the way out!
Sarrina: Make sure youíre always paying attention! Good luck out there, students. Make us proud.
