    He’s more than a whole lot of trouble.

    If Scott had used π for the teacher the improper fraction could have said, “You’re irrational!”

    There’s a common denominator among these troublemakers that needs to be found.

    They say 5/4ths of all people have problems with fractions.

    The square root of -5 proves she’s being un-imaginary.

    1/3 thinks it’s funny. The principal holds no terrors for him. He can’t be terminated.

    I think the minus sign should be greenish instead of red since the teach is supposed to be a negative.

    When I taught math we called these “Dolly Parton” fractions. Because… well… you know.

    The principal is twice as bad as the teacher. You know, -10.

    All these little tads will grow up to be whole numbers some day. Some may even aspire to become ∞ if they can achieve sufficient self-assurance.

    He’s doing the right thing. Otherwise it would lead to a fractious classroom environment.

    I had to look this up because when I learned about fractions I don’t think the term was used. Why should proper vs improper fractions be labeled this way? Why is it important to make a distinction?
