A Student's Comment

I gave quizzes in all my classes today. One student, upon finding out he scored 100% on his quiz, said the following (and I paraphrase):

"I had no idea what to do! So I tried to think logically, what could I do here? What will work? And I made sure each step was correct mathematically. I can't believe that worked! Who knew?"

He was doing so well up until that last part....

Thanks for the chuckle. Who knew, indeed.

Who knew?

He'd be surprised! =)

"A Student's Comment" spurred an interesting thought. Your blog is about the views of a conservative teacher in California. What if you posted about the views from a conservative student running the gambit that is a high school in contemporary society? My first idea was what life is like for a senior waiting to get into college, but then it could be all about a student faced with a liberal community. Maybe I should start my own blog, or write a guest piece for yours. Let me know
