    Fractionally More Dumb, Part 2

    | Savannah, GA, USA | Extra Stupid, Math & Science, Students

    (We are students working on a Master’s degree in early childhood education. This is a math class, and the professor is going over different strategies we can use for teaching fractions.)

    Professor: “So when you finish using an area model, you see that you’ve colored in 3/6 of the parts.”

    Student: “But that method is saying 3/6 is equal to 1/2.”

    Professor: “Yes… because it is.”

    Student: “No, 3/6 is 3/6. Not 1/2.”

    Professor: “[Student], in 1/2, the one is half of two. 3/6 is equivalent because three is half of six.

    Homeless And Hopeless

    | Baytown, TX, USA | Extra Stupid, Pets & Animals, Students

    (The school I teach at is brand new. At recess the kids are distracted or scared by the number of bugs and other critters out that day. This culminates in a group of girls screaming at the sight of a frog and the boys subsequently killing it. In the course of getting on to them for killing the frog, this conversation happens:)

    Me: “Remember, this school is brand new. The bugs and frogs were here long before we were. This was their home.”

    Girl: “Wait, bugs live places?!”
