I was going through my beloved NCEES pencil collection when I noticed a pattern. I really thought I was on to something. By studying the year/month/color patterns, I theorized the following "NCEES Pencil Color Formula":

April of an Odd Year = Blue

October of an Odd Year = Red

April of an Even Year =

October of an Even Year = Green

I was feeling really, really good about my theory and it checked out repeatedly...... until I found a lone Blue April 2010 pencil in my stash. Doh!

But, hey, I was close!

PS. Does your pencil(s) fit the formula?
