Hi. I'm Anderson Wang. I'm probably most known for having curly hair despite being Chinese. My door is usually open, so feel free to talk with me about puzzles, math, or anything.


  • Fall 2012: 18.701, 7.012, 8.012, 24.900
  • IAP 2013: Battlecode (with Mitchell, Patrick, and Phillip on team OWN GOAL?!, we somehow got 5th place), iOS game dev competition (with Nathan who did all the work)
  • Spring 2013: 18.702, 18.312, 6.046, 8.02, 21M.302
  • Fall 2013: 18.315, 6.854, 5.111, 21L.004


I do an unhealthy amount of puzzles. Here are some links.
Logic puzzles:

  • Nikoli has tons of high quality puzzles, available for like 5 bucks a month.
  • Logic Masters India hosts monthly puzzle contests. Lots of high quality puzzles, and also free!
  • The US Puzzle Championship is a yearly contest used to choose the US team at the WPC (World Puzzle Championship), and it'll be June 15 this year. In 2012 I was part of the unofficial B team at the WPC, which was pretty cool.
  • some puzzle blogs that I like
  • I also have my own blog, but it's not very active. Maybe I'll make more puzzles this summer semester though!

Puzzle hunts (everyone on hall should do these, they're a lot of fun!):

  • The MIT Mystery Hunt is the biggest and craziest event each year. Usually there's a hall team, although in 2013 I defected to Palindrome because I've been solving with them since high school.
  • DASH and BAPHL are some (usually) biannual events where you run around Boston and do puzzles. These are always a lot of fun.
  • The MUMS puzzle hunt, CISRA puzzle hunt, and SUMS puzzle hunt are three online hunts that happen yearly. Floorpi won the 2013 CISRA hunt!


I like playing various games on hall, including but not limited to

  • DDR/In the Groove: the only game on this list that I'm any good at
  • Mark of the Ninja
  • Melee: I mainly play shiek and pikachu, and am pretty terrible at both of them.
  • Team Fortress 2
  • The Resistance: I've been resistance like 12 times and spy once.
  • Pathery
  • Tales of Symphonia: played through the game with Mitchell and Nathan. Colette is an idiot.
  • Majora's Mask: currently playing through with Mitchell
  • osu!
  • random board games like Galaxy Trucker

Other things I do

  • I'm a problem czar for the 2014 HMMT February
  • I'm a member of the quiz bowl team, and as such, know a lot of silly/useless trivia
  • I play piano sometimes, mostly video game music and Rachmaninoff
  • I waste a lot of time and procrastinate way too much

Other things I like

  • sing-alongs (things I particularly like: dr. horrible's sing-along blog, jonathan coulton, rent and other broadway musicals)
  • ultimate
  • avatar: the last airbender
  • the sporcle app on google hangouts
  • the phrase "surprise of the century"
  • the phrase "ROWS DECODE"
  • eventually I'll come up with more things to add to this list
