    p.s. math lesson: teaching 4th graders about radius, diameter, and circumference

    I had to draw a head of me and name it, Mr. Moreno head so that kids could understand the lesson quickly...

    from the nose to the ear is what? raduis
    from ear to ear is what? diameter
    from forehead to chin, to ear to ear is what? 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 :worthy:

    I don't recall my classmates ever having an issue understanding the terms when a circle was simply drawn.

    What brought this on ?

    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

    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.


    :huh:






    edit: Betcha can't guess where I ate for lunch today, and how much I spent! Blah...

    :werd: :lol: ...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

    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.

    :(
