Default Arithmancy 1: What's in a Name?

As you near the Arithmancy classroom, you may feel the air begin to chill slightly. But don't worry, there are no dementors around. Upon entering the room you will instantly see the cause: true to form, Professor Tanner has opened the windows to allow in a crisp autumn breeze. Streaks of sunlight cross the room and fall upon freshly dusted desks, the chalkboard, and a small table with brightly colored pieces of paper. You should probably read the inscription on the board first, yes?

Tiara is standing near the door, ready to greet you as you enter.



OOC: This lesson is being held at 9am on October 15, 2085; it is not the first lesson of the year. We will officially begin in around 24 hours. Until then, feel free to chat, just try not to set the place on fire. Class has begun; please don't announce your late arrival.

But nooooooo! He'd done it wrong. He saw his mistake now. He did.

Scribbling out some of the numbers, he edited the result. Whoopsy daisy!

SPOILER!!: parchment

Hermione
8+5+9+4+ 8+4 9+6+5+5 = 51
5+1 = 6
6

Jean
1+5+1+5 = 11 12
1+2 = 6

1 + 2 = 3
3

Granger
7+9+1+5+7+5+9 = 43
4+3 = 7
7

------

6+6+7 = 19
1+9 = 10
1+0 = 1
1


6+3+7 = 16
1+6 = 7
7


That... looked better for the time being, but, MAYBE he was still wrong? He'd double check.. or was he triple/quadruple checking now? Who knew?!?!?! Zeke rubbed his temple as he concentrated on his work, going over the number another time - he could feel a headache coming on.

Cilla hoped her calculations were correct. Anything involving maths made her frazzled.

Tiara began to circulate around the room. Since she hadn't been planning on this for the lesson, she hadn't already worked the calculations ahead of time. Therefore, she spent a long time at the first Slytherin's desk. "Yes, that looks good. Well done."

Dramatic? Maybe.

But right. He was Gryffindor so uh, Hermione Jean Granger it was. Right. Uh, okay even though he was a fifth year.... Would it be bad if he still flipped open his text book for this? 'Cause really there was no way he'd have any of this memorized.. Oops. So yeah, opening the text book now. Heh. what chapter was it in again?

..... Well that was a lot harder than he thought it'd be. And he had already thought that it was going to be hard so uh yeah. Saying something. ALSO, was this even right???? Welp. He had no clue on either front so yeah, just gonna sit here until told to redo the entire thing. And maybe look around the room incase any lions needed help or anything. 'Cause even if he only mildly knew how to do this kind of stuff..... He could try?

She looked over the Gryffindor Prefect's work next. "Mister Adair, double check the calculations on the middle name for me, if you would, please." A silly mistake, really.

Arithmancy Lesson 1: What's in a Name?

Does marriage and taking another name change ones numbers?
"The prevailing choice of ancient Arithmancers, and therefore of your textbook, is to use your birth name for all calculations throughout your lifetime."

"Because name changes tend to correspond with big life changes or decisions, the new school of thought holds that your personality, values, habits, et cetera are impacted to an extent that would make calculations with your new name entirely appropriate."

"The view put forth by the rest of you is somewhere in the middle, using both calculations to gain a better picture of how the name-changing event affects your life. No one has yet, to my knowledge, come up with a mathematical rule for combining calculations with both names."


All statements by Professor Tanner

Class Exercise:
Gryffindors: Hermione Jean Granger
Hufflepuffs: Hermione Jean Weasley
Ravenclaws: Ginevra Molly Weasley
Slytherins: Ginevra Molly Potter

Gabe had been silent so far, working on his notes...making sure not to miss anything. The subject matter didn't really interest him...as it was about marriage and...Well, Gabe had nothing nice to say...and because his social cues didn't seem appropriate all the time, it was just best to remain quiet.

...and at the mention of hyphenating names, that got his attention. Actually, in the Ravenclaw's opinion, hyphenating was probably more efficient as...it included your birth name...and your new name. Mixing the old and the new...in a way. He quickly backtracked to add that bit in his notes.

Now...for the calculations bit. This wasn't hard for Gabe...as he loved dealing with numbers and calculating this and that. They were universal, which was their appeal. Math didn't change, no matter where you were doing it.

He looked to his sister...and began collecting his materials. Truth be told, he hadn't been that great of a big brother and yea, the guilt was strong. And she wasn't that well versed with the numbers like he was. Ruby would need his help...and that was okay. Gabe didn't mind. Of course, on his way over, he seen Kate...and she was a Claw and....eh, his responsibility?....Eeeeh...Gabe still didn't know what he...thought about this responsibility thing.

"This entry is what you should....go by." He carefully took her book and flipped the pages until finding what he was looking for. Pointing out the diagram, he nodded to himself. If the professor was talking about the Pythagorean Number System...that was it. "I hope that...helps. If.....you know.....need further....help?, I'll...help you."...but first he needed to check on Ruby. She tended to get overwhelmed with the Arithmancy stuff.

Sliding in next to said sister, Gabe began positioning his things again. "Don't look so scared."

She was pleased to see that her Prefect had taken Kate and Ruby under his wing. She moved on, knowing they were in capable hands.

Looking over her work, she hoped that she had done everything correctly.

Hmm. This looked good. "Well done, Miss Carrington."

Ooh. OOH. Professor Tanner was changing the lesson plan? That was... neat, yeah. NEAT. Toby DID for a moment feel a little guilty about it (all the original planning of the lesson for nothing?) but quickly pushed that aside (another lesson for another day! interesting things! spontaneity!) He had no further questions, and so simply smiled and stayed quiet as they moved on.

Hufflepuff. That was him! Toby quickly jotted down 'Hermione Jean Weasley' on his parchment in case he somehow forgot in the next few moments (hey... he'd forgotten simpler information in less time), took a moment to look around at everyone else to see if anyone nearby needed help, before getting to work.



Okay. So, nine. And that took a fair bit of scribbling out and making tally marks on the edge of his parchment but Toby was pretty sure that was more or less right. He looked back around at everyone else and tapped the feathered end of his quill on the desk out of fidgety habit. He was keeping an eye out for anyone looking confused, but he ALSO didn't want to impose on anyone who didn't need or want his help. It was hard to tell, so Toby just worked on making himself look as approachable as possible.

Tiara nodded approvingly. "Also well done, Mister Tempus."

Angel looked at her work and sighed, she raised her hand . "Professor I'm not sure if this is right or not?" Angel was a bit confused, but if that was the case she wasn't allowed to subtract 11 right that was the number it should be.

Sometimes she just didn't know what to make of this girl. "Miss Valentine, you were given explicit instructions to be working on Hermione Jean Granger, not yourself. Try again." She held back a sigh.

She glanced at the board furrowed her eyebrows and groaned a little more.

SPOILER!!: Arithmatic

Pre Equation
HERMIONE = 85949655
JEAN = 1515
GRANGER = 7915759

STEP ONE
HERMIONE = 8+5+9+4+9+6+5+5
JEAN = 1+5+1+5
GRANGER = 7+9+1+5+7+5+9

STEP TWO
HERMIONE = 51
JEAN = 12
GRANGER = 43

STEP THREE
HERMIONE = 5+1
JEAN = 1+2
GRANGER = 4+3

STEP FOUR
HERMIONE = 6
JEAN = 3
GRANGER = 7

STEP FIVE
HERMIONE + JEAN + GRANGER = 16

STEP SIX
HERMIONE + JEAN + GRANGER = 1+6

STEP SEVEN
(ECT) = 7


She looked at her calculations and HOPED she had gotten them right…because really if she hadn’t that would have made COMPLETE sense to the arithmetic loathing girl.

"Well done, Miss Greyvson," she said with an approving nod.

Her name was a part of her after all, but she didn’t see what math had to do with any of it. Numbers were just numbers, and the second year didn’t see why they meant anything other than just being numbers. It was like divination, which she also didn’t really see a point to.

She’d outwardly paid attention as the professor had spoken, though, even though her mind was still wandering. That wasn’t her fault. The number thing looked easy enough, anyway. Until that master number thing got mentioned and she got lost again. She wasn’t going to admit she hadn’t really looked much at the textbook. There were better things for her to read, but for now she slid said textbook closer to her. They’d been released to do calculations, after all, yet she only flipped to the section on the Pythgorean whatever. That was all that was important right now. That and her parchment, which was slid between herself and the book and quickly scribbled on.
SPOILER!!: notes
ginevra

potter

7+6+2+2+5+9
31

4+5+4
13


Once she got to that point, she stopped. It looked like a good enough number, unless people were superstitious. She wasn’t. And she didn’t want to do more math, so that meant stopping.

Next up was Miss Andrews. "Everything looks good up until the very end. You need to reduce your 13." An easy fix.

Jean
1+5+1+5=12

Weasley

Putting down her quill Margo hoped that she did this right! Smiling Margo waiting to see what was next.

Pretty good for a first year. "Close, Miss Holiday. Your 51, 12, and 27 need to be reduced before adding them together. Then you'll likely need to reduce at the end again." She had neglected to do so with her 90.

Hady checked her work over before setting her quill down and lifting her eyes to the Professor. She was finished and waited silently to see what was next.

Yes, this second year was coming along well in this subject. "Perfect, Miss Lynch."

SPOILER!!: Calculations!

Hermione
8+5+9+4+9+6+5+5= 51= 5+1= 6

Jean
1+5+1+5= 12= 1+2= 3

Weasley
5+5+1+1+3+5+7=27= 2+7= 9


There! All done.



Adi was looking around at his classmates, having finished his work. Okay, fine, he was mainly looking in AJ's direction but he happened to notice a Slytherin girl looking... put off? puzzled?

Anyway... the Hufflepuff whispered to her. "Hey! You need help?"

She knew she could always count on Aditya to be helpful to others. She decided not to interrupt his conversation with Cilla and Abby. He knew he had done his calculations correctly, and now she knew their concerns were being addressed.

Janelle liked numbers so she was looking forward to the activity. After they were assigned their name to calculate, Janelle flipped open her book and began to read. Fortunately, she had looked over this information before. Otherwise, she might have been a little panicked right now.

Janelle wrote down the name that she would be working on. Then using her book as a guide, she copied down the numbers corresponding to each letter. It was time to calculate.

SPOILER!!: calculations
GINEVRA
7+9+5+5+4+9+1=40

5+5+1+1+3+5+7=27
2+7=9

4+5+9=18
1+8=9


When Janelle was finished, she hoped that she had done everything right. She looked at her work and then at he Professor's. Suddenly a question came to mind and she raised her hand. She had read about Master Numbers before and was wondering something.

"Professor Tanner, I was wondering......when you did your name.......you reduced 22 in your first name, but you didn't do it your final answer. I thought that you didn't ever reduce Master Numbers. So is it OK to do it sometime?"

She didn't quite finish looking over the next Guidry's work when she was being asked a question. "Perhaps I should have left it, but I prefer to reduce them mid-calculation. It provides a smaller number to work with and does not impact the outcome." Did that make sense?

Did she even want his help. No, and by no she meant yes.

Her eyes betrayed her and glanced over in his direction. This whole "no talkin" thing was killing her, but she was trying her best to keep it all inside. So far nobody had noticed her internal struggle except a few people. None of them were her sisters. What great sisters she had, she thought to herself.

AJ flipped her textbook open and tried to make sense of it all. Her eyes began to cross and information was not being retained.

SPOILER!!: work

Hermione
9 8 (definitely 8) 4? 6?
Jean

Granger


She knew this stuff. All she had to do was associate the letters with the correct numbers. Why was her brain giving her such a hard time. AJ closed her eyes and pinched the bridge of her nose. Her days were not getting any better. What happened to that saying that time healed all wounds? Whoever came up with that nonsense was an idiot.

This one had been distracted all lesson. Perhaps personal issues? She noticed that she was certainly not seated by her normal partner. "Keep going, Miss Valentine."

There was quite a bit of scribbling for this one. But... "You got there eventually, Mister Rogers. Good."

She raised her voice. "A few more minutes, everyone!"

The fifth year cast another look at Abby's parchment. He checked to make sure all the calculations were correct... and they were! "So far so good, Abby. Could you do he same for the last two names that you did for the first? Add then reduce them if they are double digits. When you're done reducing them to single digits, add all three numbers together. Meaning, add the 4 and the other two numbers from the two remaining names.''

Another quick check of Abby's parchment told him that Abby was still on track. "Just one thing left to do now. This 18... you need to reduce it. So, following the same steps you did with reducing the double digits for the names, do the same for this one as well.'' And then she would pretty much be done with the exercise!

Of COURSE Grayson Whitlock was paying attention. Of course.

And Zander was getting better at the 'sup nods, did he know?

Yeah. Right. Paying attention. Notes had been made about the topic of the name change issue and if it changed things when it came to their calculations based on Arithmancy. Kudos to Tobias for thinking of that because he certainly wouldn't have. The sixteen year old hadn't had anything to add or comment on -- surprising, wasn't it? -- so he stayed quiet.

Seeing as he was a Slytherin and FINALLY getting started, Grayson scribbled down the name 'Ginevra Molly Potter' before flipping his textbook open to the correct page. Trying to do this without using the textbook was HARD, man, and he wasn't up for putting his brain through that kinda headache. Besides, there wasn't much time left.

Reduce them? Margo looked at the Professor...what in the world did that mean? Oh....... "Thanks Professor" Margo said taking her numbers and re looking at them

51: 5+1=6
12: 1+2=3
27: 2+7=9

Okay there an now
6+3+9=18

And finally
1+8=9

"9 right Professor? Did I reduce those right?"

Margo now realized she only had done half the work, but there, now she was probably right.

The middle part of his... Oh oops. See, that's what happens when you're not working with Sophie Brown. Siiiiigh. Picking up his quill, he gave a small nod to Tanner before looking back over his work and making corrections. La la la doing that Arithmancy thing and hopefully getting it properly OK this time. Maybe. Eh, how was he supposed to know?

Hopefully this one was okay. Hopefully. Unless there was another slip of the quill in here.

Okay so as Gryffindor he was to do the famous Hermione Granger with her unwed name. Benny wrote out the three names on his parchment, spacing them out so he could do the calculations beneath each of them. Then he turned to the page in the textbook as instructed and began filling in the numbers he would be needing to do said calculations.

Quote:
Hermione
8+5+9+4+9+6+5+5
Jane
1+1+5+5
Granger
7+9+1+5+7+5+9
Now there was the adding up and breaking down of the numbers in each group until he had it all laid out. He'd have to be careful of those master numbers too since sometimes he caught himself and didn't go lower and sometimes he slipped up and forgot. Ugg, they were running out of time as the Professor spoke up mentioning they only had a few more minutes, Benny did his best to finish up, hoping he had them all right. Her middle name was certainly the easiest.

Quote:
Hermione
8+5+9+4+9+6+5+5
51
5+1=6

Jane
1+1+5+5

3
Granger
7+9+1+5+7+5+9
45
4+5=9
9

6+3+9=18
1+8=9
Final number is 9

Calculation time....woooooo. Caleb was usually pretty good at the simple matching-numbers-to-letters thing, so he wasn't too worried about it. It was just time consuming. Sigh.

He pulled out his notes and his arithmancy book and got to work!

But...13 was one of those karma numbers. Did he reduce? UGH. He raised his hand. "Professor?" he asked. He normally NEVER asked questions in this class, but with OWLs coming up...he needed to. And he hated it. "I got one of those karma number things. Do I reduce that?" he asked.

"First give each letter its corresponding number from the Pythagorean System, found on page three of your textbook." She wrote each number under its letter. "Reduce each word down individually," she paused here to add up each word and get three totals, "and then combine those totals and reduce." Of course, she wasn't the best example of this because she had a Master, but that was not a big deal. They had spent a great deal of time on them last term. "As you can see, my Expression Number is the 22/4 Master Number."



"So, let's do some investigation using the divide and conquer method! Gryffindors, I would like for you to calculate the Expression Number for Hermione Jean Granger. Hufflepuffs, calculate for Hermione Jean Weasley. Ravenclaws, please take Ginevra Molly Weasley. Slytherins, you have Ginevra Molly Potter." Two very famous witches of which a great deal was known. "Raise your hand if you get stuck and I'll be happy to assist you. Older students help the younger students if they need it!"


OOC: Feel free to work alone or pair up. Next post in approximately 12 hours.
Now onto the real part of the lesson. He looked at the board and he thought it all look gibberish to him. He gave it a quizzical look and shook his head and referred to his textbook. Now he was gonna do the calculations for Hermione Jean Weasley. He began to write it in his notebook.

SPOILER!!: Kace's Notebook


Hermione

(8+5+9+4+9+6+5+5)

Jean

(1+1+5+5)

Weasley

5+5+1+1+3+5+7)



Now that he did the numbers for the name. He looked at the board to see how the Professor did it. Now onto his calculations.

SPOILER!!: Calculations


Hermione= 51

Jean = 12

Weasley= 27

5+1= 6
1+2=3
2+7=9

All together: 6+3+9= 18

1+8=9

Final Answer is 9.


Huh....I guess Arthimancy isn't so bad. He finished just when the Professor called out when they had a few minutes left. He hoped he did this right.

SO hard. She took a breath, finishing up, and then gave her brother an uncertain look, then glanced toward the professor before sliding the parchment back to him.

....

".... did I.... mess it up again?"
Glancing over from his own calculations, Gabe regarded her answers...noting that they were right this time. Ruby got a small smile. "Good job.....They're right."

Not so hard, see?

Quickly finishing his own up...he looked back to the small Ravenclaw girl, Kate. Had she...been able to figure it out? Did she still need some help? Gabe was terrible at gauging these situations...and just stared at her for a moment. It might've unnerved some people...but it wasn't meant to do so.

Hmm.

Dima was... having a little trouble with this. Despite Professor Tanner's example, it took him a little while to digest everything on the said page in his textbook, as sums weren't really his thing. After quite a bit of page flipping and scribbling, though, he had this much down:

And... now to add them, right? Which gave him...

Next he added the results' digits together:

2 + 7
9
And then added those together as well.

Quote:

Cool. So... nine. What did he do with that, now?

Kate tapped her quill silently against her parchment. She stared at her work like she expected the numbers to just start calculating themselves. She fidgeted a bit, not sure what to do, until she was aware of somebody else standing next to her and flipping the pages of her book. At first, she thought it was the professor. Then she looked over to see that it was Gabe, one of her house prefects.

When he was done flipping and pointing out the page she should be looking at, Kate grinned and said, "Thanks, Gabe. I'll give it a try and let you know if I have any trouble," she said. It really didn't seem so hard now that she had the right page open. Kate noted that Gabe then went to the side of some older Slytherin girl. They were working and whispering about something Kate didn't think she was supposed to be in on. So instead, she focused on her parchment again and tried to match all the letters to the right numbers.

"Gabe?" she asked, hesitating about interrupting him and the Slytherin girl. "Is this all I'm supposed to be doing for now?"

It was time for numbers, not her forte buuut it had to be done. She wrinkled her nose at the textbook as she flipped through the pages. Flipping from page to page, she stopped and skimmed the page on number system they were currently working on. Numbers, numbers, numbers. Why not dragons?

........Right, this wasn't creatures class. Bummer.

Taking her quill, she jotted down the name 'Ginevra Molly Potter.' Let the fun begin, yeah? Right.

4+5+4 = 13

...There..................

Maybe. The Prefect didn't feel as confident in her numbers as she would in potions or ancient runes. So............revision was happening. Lots of it.

Maths time. Ew. Norah let out a long sigh as she pulled her textbook towards her and opened it to the designated page. Numbers numbers numbers la la la why did they all get all blendy and weird when she looked at them? DOUBLE SIGH. With a small shake of her head, the third year bent over her parchment and pushed a few curls from her eyes as she began to write her calculations.

Angel blushed, she had been so eager to get on with thing that she must have misheard the Professor. "I'm sorry Professor." Angel hoped that she wasn't going to get into trouble for what she had done.

She put what she had done before she started to sort things out and she did the correct work.

A few deep breaths were taken and she tried to start completely over. Not that she had managed to get a lot done in the first place. Her quill scratched across her paper as she drew a line across the nonsense she had written down. Look at Adi over there managing to get things done. Did he not care? Had he moved on? Once Adi's eyes met hers, she quickly looked away and focused back on the name she was given. Aditya Rehman was not going to be the reason why she started to fail.

The third year heard the encouraging words from the professor and she was trying, okay? Finally, AJ was able to put the correct numbers with the letters. She knew she needed to add them all up, and there could only be one digit left. AJ was actually getting places. When she had all three numbers calculated for the name she added them all together and condensed it down until only one number remained. WOOT. She had done it after all. Her final number was 7, lucky number 7. Now her brain was no longer busy and thoughts of Adi came flooding back. Of course they did.

"Gabe?" she asked, hesitating about interrupting him and the Slytherin girl. "Is this all I'm supposed to be doing for now?"

.

.

Hmm?

Blinking because the person he'd been looking at was now speaking to him, Gabe glanced first at his sister...and then stood to join the small person. He'd said he'd help...So, there was no backing out now. Clearly, the Ravenclaw was committing to this badged business. Flushy face and all.

Not so embarrassed in the moment, though, he carefully pulled the parchment up to have a better look. First things first, Gabe double checked her math. Everything appeared right...so far. Yes.

"All you have to do...now is add all those sums together....and...simplify."

Blinking because the person he'd been looking at was now speaking to him, Gabe glanced first at his sister...and then stood to join the small person. He'd said he'd help...So, there was no backing out now. Clearly, the Ravenclaw was committing to this badged business. Flushy face and all.

Kate caught that blink. And that glance. She suddenly had the impression that she was in the way of something. That didn't bother her, though. She just wanted to figure out how to do this Arithmancy, and then she'd be on her way. "Are you okay?" she decided to ask. He looked like he was suddenly caught off guard by something very, very embarrassing. Maybe she didn't even want to know what that conversation he'd been having with that Slytherin girl was all about.

Kate waited while he checked over her work, and then she nodded in reply. "Okay. That's easy enough," she said. "Thanks again!" Now she'd be on her way.

5 + 5 + 1 + 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 = 27
2 + 7 = 9

4 + 5 + 9 = 18
1 + 8 = 9

He sat expectantly as Professor Tanner came to check over his work. Gulp. Thankfully though he HAD made some corrections to his initial calculations. He DID get there eventually. Offering her a small smile and a little shrug he said, "My head just wasn't in the game." Nor was it ever, really, if he was to be completely honest. Numbers got confusing, even when you had enough fingers.

While he was waiting, Zeke neatened up his work by titling his page. He wondered what the next part would be. Would they just be comparing the current results? Or would they have time to play with their own names? Either way, he was going to find out his options where names, destiny and life path numbers were concerned. Yep.
