My dad teaches maths in a secondary school (in the UK) yet he knows nothing about mathematics!!!

I think it sometimes goes like this:

"Mary, our very talented mathematics teacher, has retired ... who can take over her classes?"

"Ummm ... Sam has the lightest workload"

"Congratulations Sam, you now teach Mathematics"

A lot of state school teachers in the UK are basically baby sitters.]]>

I keep asking him if he needs any help ... did not actually think he would take me up on it....

It really makes me feel old.

Wish I could ask my dad for help. He went as far as calculus 2 in college but never really had to use it, so he forgot most of it. What a pity...

cosx
