Personally, I'm super pissed that my math teachers never taught me that basically all of trigonometry could be derived from one damned formula.

I know for me it did. And to be honest, I hated it when teachers tried to teach us shortcuts in math. A lot of the time I had already figured out a different way to see the numbers that helped me better. I would rather just learn the match from the teacher and I'll figure out a pattern in the numbers on my own.

You would think so, but no. I know a cosmetologist who literally can't make change at a cash register because she doesn't "do math."

Your teachers never taught you that? What assholes! My 2nd grade teacher taught us all the tricks. And once we were able to do each of the 1-9 multiplication tables correctly in under two minutes, she bought us a banana split.

You know there is an incredibly easy way to do 9* 1-10 on your hands alone.

Put up both hands, put down the finger that corresponds to the number to are multiplying and count the fingers before the down finger that's the 10 column and the fingers after are the ones.

So lets say 9*3... Put down your left middle finger leaving you two fingers before the downed finger and 7 after for an answer of 27.

Yeah. When we got the one table, we got a picture of a bowl. Then when we got twos, we got a banana, then a few scoops of ice cream, then whipped cream, hot fudge, and then finally when we got the 9 table, we got a cherry on top. And when the picture was completed, we were given a coupon for a free banana split. Loved that teacher!

If it weren't for football, most of us would have trouble knowing what the multiples of 7 were.

I knew a kid in elementary school who could never learn his timetables except for seven. Cool story, I know.

I just always remembered it like this:

09
18
27
36
45
54
63
etc

Add one, subtract one.

Do you remember how back in the day, all our teachers told us we needed to learn how to do all this math by hand because we wouldn't be able to carry a calculator around with us at all times? Freaking liars.

Remember when they told you half the formulas you had to learn would be practical in real life? Liars.

It's true but let me tell you how horrid it is to try to do mathematics with a kid that never thought it was important to learn the basics.

Most of us learned these basics being promised we'd need them. Those that don't learn them are utterly hopeless without the crutch of electronic calculation.


I'm telling you, your perspective on youth changes drastically when a 17 year old kid, whom thinks very highly of themselves, asks you which side of the map is west and which is north.

I remember when I first learned matrices I was totally thinking that it was the most useless subject that I had ever learned. I'm pretty sure I use them in every class now, except a computer program does them for me.
