Deep Math Thoughts
I’ve been thinking about a lot of things lately…
Instead of having “answers” on a math test, they should just call them “impressions,” and if you get a different impression, so what? Can’t we all just get along?
If you think that dogs can’t count — let him watch you put two biscuits in your pocket, and then only give him one.
If we stop teaching students about numbers less than zero, do you think there would be a positive impact on education?
A prime rib cannot be cut with a steak knife, because it is only divisible by itself and one.
A math professor is someone who talks in other people’s sleep.
A mathematician is someone who will begin a sentence with, “As everyone knows,” and then finish it with something he just learned.
And a famous quotation…
Never trust any quote you find on the Internet.
– Abraham Lincoln, Second Inaugural Address
