When you introduce k into proportion and you immediately feel
them all not getting it?
When you look through a paper and think &ldquo; Oh God, Did I
mention Mass, Density and Volume&rdquo;<font face="Times New Roman">

</font></font>
<font face="Calibri">When they see 27^(-2/3) on a past paper and you tell them to
skip it?

<font face="Times New Roman">When you teach Circle Theorems knowing they&rsquo;ll never
remember any of it?
When they blatantly add compass workings to their incorrect
constructions?
When you notice that a Year 11 nailed-on C was somehow a KS2
Level 3?
When you open their paper and see a pictogram?
It's such fun.
Ain't it fun
When they get trial and error and you&rsquo;ve hardly explained
anything?
When none use the word correlation but the Mark Scheme gives
them it anyway?
When no-one can draw the cuboid because you&rsquo;ve given them
the wrong isometric paper?
When you make up a simultaneous equation on the board off
It's such fun.
Ain't it fun
When they see that x = 1 goes vertically?
When the sum of any 3 consecutive even numbers is always a
multiple of six because... and 5 examples are given, one incorrect?
When after a week of Cumulative Frequency teaching, they all
plot midpoints in their Mock?
When you explain the difference between 2x^2 = (2x)^2 for
the 11</font>th<font size="3"> time?</font>
When they can all sketch f(2x) but have no idea why?
It's such fun, just fun.
