A TYPICAL DAY...
Are you visiting this web page and wondering what this class is like? Or are you a student who was absent and wants to know what we did today? Well, I am currently in the process of uploading class notes. However, please read the following excerpt to get a general feel for the course. I call it "A Day in the Life of Math Studies," and it is starring MY STUDENTS:
Ms. Z: So, guys, when I say something is not NOT happening, that means it is happening.
Let"s say I tell you it is not NOT raining outside. Then, is it raining?
Araceli: I don"t get it.
Ms. Z: Yes you do get it.
Lesley: It isn"t raining.
Ms. Z: No, it is raining.
Araceli:But you just said it is not raining!
Ms. Z: That is not what I said.
Lesley: Ok it"s not what you said but it sounds like it because if something is not not then it
really is okay so if I say not not not not then it is I get it it"s just confusing.
Ms. Z: Well, okay, you sort of get it, but be careful, because if you say not not not, THEN...
Iris: Miss, this is confusing.
Ms. Z: Stephanie, help Iris.
Lesley: It IS confusing.
Adrian: Yeah Miss, this is CONFUSING! (even though he has had his head down the entire
Ms. Z:It is not confusing.
Tyler: It is. (Even though Ms. Z is pretty sure he 100% understands the concept).
Ms. Z:Guys (getting mad), this is NOT confusing.
Alex: Well, technically, if it isn"t raining, it could be raining, because it could be raining in,
say, Africa, so if the location hasn"t been specified, the problem may not be valid.
Jason: (Shakes his head at Alex)
Ms. Z: Well, we can assume that I will specify the place, but -
Lesley: Ok we get it. If it is not raining, it is raining.
Ms. Z: No. If it is not NOT raining, then it is raining.
Lesley: Ok that"s what I meant.
Ms. Z: But it is not what you said.
LesleyAraceli Adrian: BECAUSEIT"S JUST CONFUSING!!
Iris: Yeah yeah yeah, ok, but miss, why did you say to be careful if it is not not NOT raining?
Ms. Z: Well, just, forget that I said that for now.
Stephanie: Iris, just forget about that.
Araceli: I still don"t get this.
Adrain: I know MISS!!!
Victoria: (Thinks to herself) What am I doing in this class?
Ms. Z: (Getting really mad) ARACELI, YOU DO GET IT.
Elizabeth and Margarita: (Laugh at Ms. Z for getting so mad).
Miguel: (To Raphael) Can you just look outside and see if it is raining?
