Re: Hello everyone! I want to learn to teach math.

Hi learn2teach;

I am pretty familiar with your school system. I went to Brooklyn Technical High School. People as you know get lazier as technology increases. I am not too optimistic about your attempts to reverse the entire river by yourself. Seems like you are the boy and the dyke. I do wish you the best though and will assist you with specific questions.

Re: Hello everyone! I want to learn to teach math.

hi learn2teach

I don't know how the grades equate.  That year 10 class was a 'bottom set' ie weakest in the year at math.

Lower down the page you'll find SATs and GCSE papers with a higher level of question.

Re: Hello everyone! I want to learn to teach math.

Teaching is a hard job, but I guess being a student is a harder job especially of math

Re: Hello everyone! I want to learn to teach math.

I had to walk to school 8 miles in the snow through bad neighborhoods where they tried to kill me every day. I had holes in my shoes and a skimpy jacket when it was 15 F out there. Had no money for lunch so I went hungry. Everywhere, no bumpkins allowed the sign said. yea, dem po  kids in NY today they shur gots it tuf.

No computers, no calculators, no tv's, no cell phones, that is what I had. Played in garbage in the street and empty lots where buildings once stood. yea, dem po kids in NY today they shur gots it tuf.

No money for books, not even a lousy 6 dollars to buy the Physics and Chemistry Handbook. When MLK got killed their was a riot at my school. 6000 of us versus about 30000 of the local pukes in the neighborhood. Chains, bats, sticks, teeth and anything else you had was how we pushed our way out of the auditorium and walked home while NYC police dept stood their watching. yea, dem po kids in NY today they shur gots it tuf.

No counselors or anybody to talk you out  of quitting school and ruining your life, nobody cared. pappym constantly being laid off for no reason whatsoever, could not pay the rent. No welfare for bumpkins in the Big Apple. yea, dem po kids in NY today they shur gots it tuf.

It is my satire on the whole affair, since I went to the school system that unfortunate teacher is from.

Huge books that contain gazillions of formulas, ain't you ever seen the Abramowitz and Stegun book.

Nope.

Looking back at the past, how do you feel now that you are 94?

Re: Hello everyone! I want to learn to teach math.

I can not wait to do it all again. I might meet up with Agnishom or you or maybe anonimnystefy.  I will look different but I will be inside.

We might meet on a forum and they will tell me about m and EM. As ole Vartoosh used to say,"And everything back to the beginning..."

Perhaps I will end up being 94 and you being 14 tongue or perhaps it already happened before.
