Mental math homeowork
Math is a mystery of mortal combat to a few of my students – especially those who don’t do their homework.
I suppose math is resolving conflict at that.
Do Algebra, x is always the unknown factor. Mystery, mystery.
love the expressions!!
deep, calvin, deep
I understand why math was a mystery to me.I was saving the savouring for later in life.
What won’t be a mystery is Calvin’s grade.
If youwant to go to the moon, do math.If you want to go to Europe, marry well or make lots of money!What counts is the bottom line.1+1=2
Great comments from all of you. I just can’t get my mind to add a comment this morning……..
I don’t like mysteries.
wowwowoowwww just good their season…… I Love you both
X + Y = Zzzzzzzzzz
Literary qualities of math! Whoohoo! I am set for life! “Where is your Precalculus homework, young lady?” “Sorry, ma’m I’m savoring the mystery, and besides l turned it in as a literature assignment!”
Calvin, you never cease to amaze me!
Mary is twice as old as Jim. The train left London at 3:45 PM. In any given right triangle, how many pancakes does it take to build a doghouse?. True or False
Maybe Calvin is on to something, considering the past history of Hobbes’ outlandish ways of going math homework!
The lengths Calvin goes to in order to avoid doing what is actually the task/responsibility at hand knows no measure! His future is clearly in politics.
I’m divided on weather to solve the problem or savor the mystery. + – = < > :
I love how Calvin always thinks in depth… Wait until he tells that to Miss Wormwood as an excuse.
Apparently Paul Ryan studied with her …
im 16 and i dont know WHAT he is talking about
Once I slammed Moby Dick like that because there was an ant in it. (I cleaned it up)
that play is performed on a null set.
What strikes me about Calvin is that he has an inherently creative mind, but his school environment works on the old model of rote memorization. If Calvin’s folks (his pedantic father, especially) had bothered to notice the power of his imagination, they would have put him into a better school where his creative potential could have been properly nurtured. Both his parents failed him miserably.
Free the denominators!!
I was always really good at math until we got to addition and subtraction….
cookies333: I just now left you a message on yesterday’s C&H board in response to your last post to me.
Wait until you have to find the lowest common denominator. I understand they are still looking for it!
Arithmetic? Wait until you get into geometry, algebra, calculus, Bessel Functions, La Place Transforms, Statistics -————
Ah! Making me learn to love math in this new way. Now I won’t be quite so bored!
Math: I’m not a therapist. Solve your own problems.
Or: Stop asking us to find your X. She’s not coming back.
Y? We don’t know.
Ah yes, the horrors of subtraction.
hilarious,as a student,i agree
MORTAL COMBAT! Daduh daduh daduh dada da da!
