    @Stella S

    Ms. Payne was hoping to save Maria before it’s too late, and we all end up like in WALL-E.

    Ms. Payne just forgot to take her target audience into consideration.

    Someone should explain to Maria the need for math in the desirable majors when she gets to college. And when she gets there her ability to attract a mate will depend on her performance in those hard majors. The young dudes are not looking at good looks so much anymore. If they want only that, they can easily pick up the waitress or bank teller with the wink of an eye when they go to those places. They now know if they want the good life, their wife will not only have to be intelligent, but also have the ability to bring in the money, too.

    People vastly underestimate how much practice math takes to be able to do it. One of my tutoring students just washed out yet again. Oh well. I guess I’ll see her next semester. She needs the math credits for her major, which is her biggest dream. I am more than willing to do all her homework and explain it to her, which is her best chance to make it. I obviously can’t take her tests for her. But no matter how I blather on she won’t listen to me about the necessity for a background. The great mathematician Alfred North Whitehead said you’ve got to have a foundation in math before going proceeding further. She needs to learn arithmetic, which they now call prealgebra.

    Having been a bank teller, among many other jobs at the bank, I resent that remark.

    Sorry about that. I didn’t mean to offend. I still remember the one blond bank teller with the bluest eyes who would flirt with me every time I did my banking. She was really cute! My heart would jump but there was no time to date. Like most there, I was barely surviving in school. It may not be this way anymore, but back in the day going to the good big state u was a big deal and girls that were working jobs and not going to that school would look up to us. Girls from other, lesser ranked schools would come to our parties and they didn’t seem to be interested in guys from their own schools. It was like we could have been a serial killer and it wouldn’t have mattered. I would always wonder why they simply didn’t just go to that school themselves. How convenient for them to live at home and study. But they just didn’t have any confidence, you could tell from talking to them. They couldn’t possibly have been any dumber than I was. The schools I went to were so terrible, and I’m naturally dumb anyway.
