Circumference... SMART KIDS!!! (not really but they're cute LOL) hey, the kids learned, so I will be using mr. Nacho head once again hahaha I think the teacher thought I was crazy, but what she tried teaching in 1 hour, i taught them in 10 minutes with spanish and spanglish and mr. moreno head LOL __________________ Looking for another 92 hatch back to put a ***** engine into it...

 02-02-2005, 12:06 PM #7 Posts: 452 since after I recieved my double bachelors, the jobs I was looking for were all on freeze, and still are... I kept my job as a teachers aide... its the coolest job ever, i.e. if you like working with kids, very rewarding... plus its 2.5 miles away from my house and its the elementary school where I once attended also LOL... But yes, the teacher was frustrated bc she didn't know how to explain it to them. She's chinese-american, and the kids are all central-american or mexican. So she gave up and said, Mr. Moreno help me out and teach them in spanish... So i got up, and really, in a kids perspective, it is confusing if you do not know or have never seen this type of question... So since the math equation involves 2 parts, we all have two sides to a face/body... so that's how Mr. moreno head became to be LOL... Hey kids learn, so its all good. When I had my lowrider, and I was helping teach in the 5th grade class, I would bring the lowrider to school and we would use it for math hehee... 14 batteries @ 12 volts each equals how many volts? Boy, kids get interested and learn quicker when its hands on LOL __________________ Looking for another 92 hatch back to put a ***** engine into it...

 02-02-2005, 01:45 PM #9 Posts: 9,200 For a real-world math lesson, teach them about negative numbers. 'Okay kids, if you have 98 cents in your bank account, and you use your debit card at McDonald's for \$8.95, you now have -\$37.97 in your bank account!' This could also be effective in teaching them about fucking bullshit overdraft fees. edit: Betcha can't guess where I ate for lunch today, and how much I spent! Blah...
 02-02-2005, 01:56 PM #10 Posts: 5,192 Why in dear god did you spend \$8.95 at a McDonlads? That's why they invent \$1 menus.

...and to civicous...if you know your going to overdraft, just do what i do, let's take washington mutual for example, they give me a \$500 overdraft limit, so i take my balance down to cents from buying gas or something, then i go to the bank and pull out \$500, that way you get charged only 1 overdraft fee and you have money in hand that you'll need later :P ...and to Nacho, i'm actually thinking about becoming a PE teacher, but i'm more or so leaning towards being a basketball coach

 02-02-2005, 10:35 PM #18 Posts: 9,200 Well, I didn't know I was going to overdraft...I usually catch it before the cutoff time, and go deposit the money into the bank... my internet thingie for Regions Bank wouldn't load (so I could check my up-to-the-minute balance), and i said fuck it, I'll be fine, and went to McD's like 30 minutes before the cutoff time (8pm). Get home at like 8:10, check my balance, and see a nice \$30 overdraft fee waiting for me.
