Well, THAT’s topical… though she seems to have actually understood what exponential curves really are, unlike about 40% of the US population.
“If you got the curves, I got the angles.”
For someone who needs help with simple arithmetic, that seems rather advanced for her.
But all the gals on this strip don’t have any curves to them, exponential or otherwise.
Level O’ Hope: 10… 9… 7… 5… 0!!!!!!
Today’s classic Sunday strip we’re missing:
Must have gotten to e^(x^2)…
LOL. This is one reason I like this comic strip. I used to put at least one of these at the end of my tests when I was teaching. They were always accurate and on topic.
Wait until you get a 3 body problem in calculus.
Beautiful, comic depiction of the application of an exponential curve. Now think about approaching infinity, and then think about what that means. Then put your asbestos hat on your brain pan.
Took me a second to truly get the gag…guess that tells all of you a lot about my nonexistent math skills, doesn’t it? :P
I thought Paige was (always) taking geometry
Night on Paige Mountain… ⛰ ☠️ ☺
My high school and college math classes have been absolutely useless to my everyday life. Luckily, I only spent hundreds of hours getting perfect grades in each of them and paying handsomely for the privilege.
I’m a mostly right-brained liberal arts type. However, when I took statistics, I actually enjoyed it. Then, I got to probability, and that was my chapter 5. My math-oriented, left-brained husband read that chapter of my textbook and got it immediately. I just had to remind myself that I had other types of skills.
That’s my favorite Dante Alighieri quotation, the sign over the gate to hell. I put it on my door at work when I get too busy: “lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch’intrate”.
Exponential curves are fake math. Data has a liberal bias. Everybody knows that.
Is this only funny for people who know what exponential curves are?
I think this comic is a bit hyperbolic…
MATH = Mental Abuse To Humans.
That one hit the nail right on the thumb!
Exponential curves? I’d thought Paige had been reading Dante until she realized it’s in Italian.
What is the Joke?
Having read many, many, many textbooks in technical subjects – I can completely relate.
That’s EVERY math lesson.
