Things Students Say Thursday #4


Ok, so this week we've been covering Pythagorean Theorem in my co-taught Algebra 1A class.  They had to do a worksheet exploring who Pythagoras was as a mathematician.  As we were going over the assignment with the students, the topic of reincarnation came up (don't ask me how).  One of my 9th graders wasn't familiar with the concept, so we had to explain.

Student: "So, I could been reincarnated in Martin Luther King?"
Me: "No, it doesn't go into the past.  Martin Luther King could've been reincarnated in you."
Student: "Oh.  [long pause]  That's raw!"

That's all for now.  I'm blanking on the rest of my stories for the week, although I'm sure they're out there!
