for Math class dissected

This was me in my geometry class last year. I think the only reason I passed is because the teacher didn't collect homework. Great write, very amusing and true.

Ah, I think when I go to my geometry class, I'm already in the Denial stage( but maybe that's because I have it first period EVERYDAY) Well, I'm in that stage that I could care less. Why? I hate math, and it still astounds me to this day that I've managed to get decent, average grades.

Anyway, I laughed throughout this, because I can relate considering whatever I'm doing in math I can't remember. Honestly, my memory is a weird thing. So funny, but this can be taken as angst to some people. It's not funny in a sense because it's true, for me at least. God, I'm either laughing for joy or laughing because I'm hysterical.

Loved it, I enjoyed it a lot!

Yup. Exactly right.

I am like, so bad at math it is not even funny. We all dubbed the woman 'the horror from hell'

oh my gosh! its like you live my life! (or my math math life) Very humorous! Keep writing! Maybe you should make one entitled "Chem class dissected" next..(same theories apply..)

I've never read more true words in my life. This also applies to chem class, expect maybe there should be a stage called "destruction."

Keep writing. I always look forward to seeing what you'll come up with next.

I don't really want to remember maths classes actually. It hurts my brain just doing food costings! But, oh yeah, you got the feeling right there mate. It brought it all back!

Heheh, nice dissection of a Math class. I had calculus y'know but good thing, I'm done with them now. The last paragraph expressed a really familiar scene. =)

Ah my God-

You've hit the nail on the head. I hate math. I purposely took an easy math this year because I'm a senior, and I still can't function. This is perfect, and I completely go through all these stages. Wonderful!

Amen, sister!

god, i know exactly how this goes. i shudder (almost always) when entering my math class.

this is the work of a pure genius.

thank you quite a bit for the reviews!

Upon being asked a question, my Honors Precalculus teacher once said, "When I first started teaching and the kids didn't understand, I thought I might be teaching it wrong. Now I realize that the kids are just stupid."

Needless to say that class hasn't gone well for me, and your analysis is very funny, although all too familiar. It's nice to know that going through the Five Stages is a universal problem.

(P.S.: Thanks for the reviews.as for "Moscow Blaze," in the original draft it was Oleg Penkovskiy (hence the cigar and the little hidden references to espionage), but upon rereading the revised version I decided that the man could be other people, depending on how you interpret the symbolic elements.)

its funny because its true. i tend to forget everything by the next morning.

LOL! The best humour has a basis in fact. So that's what happens. All my sympathy on binomial expansions - I, too, am learning them this year. Heheheh. But thank goodness for Pascal's triangle.

-last night’s homework doesn’t make so much sense anymore.

*nods emphatically* How IS it that teachers manage to make you feel that concepts you were on top of are sliding out from under you? Urgch. I had two maths classes today. (Enough is enough.)

This was wryly done - as short as it needed to be, really, with melodrama of only the entertaining kind. :)

Oh I love this one!

Hehe. So true.

Though I'm actually not all that bad at Math.. ^_^

It was a quite enjoyable read!

I can spot nothign wrong with it.

*Two thumbs up*
