That sort of annoying puzzle is simultaneously what I wish my math classes had been and what I am glad they weren't.

I learned binary in 4th grade, octal in 5th and hex in 7th. As a result, I kick ass at concepts of higher math and suck ass at arithmetic. Which is exactly the opposite of what's useful in engineering.
