    Was she teaching islamic algebra?

    BTW – the ‘zoom’ icon is placed in an inappropriate place again.

    “iven that the Persian Al Khwarizmi is credited with inventing algebra, this works on several levels”, he said smugly.

    The Algebra class then declares a Jihad against the history class

    Actually, it was a lie, there was no algebra or WMD in the class room.

    I had an English teacher who was that creative. He once ran down the hall with a starter’s pistol yelling, “They’re hanging Louis Riel!!”

    If anyone deserves to be invaded it’s fourth period algebra.

    I wouldn’t mess with my 4th period algebra class. They’ll throw the book at the invaders and I would have to resort to Weapons of Math Instruction and my Random Axe of Kindness!

    Yeah, it isn’t at the center. Methinks it was done on purpose, like the dust lines in “Lion King”.

    I live in a country where we listen to our Russian friends and they said there were NO WMD in Iraq. My father-in-law from the USA flipped when I told him my intelligence source. He wanted to sell me swamp land in Florida. The CBC also ran a 1/2 hour show about the lead up to the war, their take was a few Iraqi refugees that had the ears of the right people in the House and Congress. After the war machine started these dissidents disappeared.
