Joke-TEACHING MATH
    #4588430 - 08/27/05 08:54 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Last week I purchased a burger at Burger King for $1.58. The counter
girl took my $2 and I was digging for my change when I pulled 8 cents
from my pocket and gave it to her. She stood there, holding the
nickel and 3 pennies, while looking at the screen on her register. I
sensed her
discomfort and tried to tell her to just give me two quarters, but
she
hailed the manager for help. While he tried to explain the
transaction to
her, she stood there and cried.

Why do I tell you this? Because of the evolution in teaching math
since the 1950s:

Teaching Math In 1950

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production
is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit?

Teaching Math In 1960

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production
is 4/5 of the price, or $80. What is his profit?

Teaching Math In 1970

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production
is
$80. Did he make a profit?

Teaching Math In 1980

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production
is $80 and his profit is $20. Your assignment: Underline the number
20.

Teaching Math In 1990

A logger cuts down a beautiful forest because he is selfish and
inconsiderate and cares nothing for the habitat of animals or the
preservation of our woodlands. He does this so he can make a profit
of $20. What do you think of this way of making a living? Topic for
class
participation after answering the question: How did the birds and
squirrels feel as the logger cut down their homes? (There are no
wrong answers.)

Teaching Math In 2005

Un hachero vende una carretada de madera para $100. El costo de la
produccisn es $80 ...

This has been by far the least funny thing I've seen all day, and I've been posting all day.

ROFL

this post made me laugh, not only because of your comedic genius (very funny btw) but because when I first started working with a cash regester (in highschool) as much as I'de hate to admit it... similiar thing happened to me.

I forget exactly what it was... so I'm going to say a hypothetical situation to get the point across.

Someone came up and their total was 8 bucks.  They hand me 13, a ten and three singles.  I'm like sir... your total is only 8 dollars.  He's like ...yes... I gave you 13...


I was like but sir... its only 8 dollars here ill just take the 10...

he was like NO.  You will take the 13, by me giving you 13 for my 8 dollar total, instead of getting back two singles, I will get back a 5.

I was major  :facepalm:

The thing is, IMO, the schools don't teach for this. I finished schooling recently (high school level) and I have learned more SINCE I've left high school in every single regard possible, specifically math.
I really do feel that if schools thought math in a different way, like a more hands on kind of practical way, things would be different.
