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.

If you have a bag containing 100 red smarties, 20 white ones, 300 blue ones and 500 green ones, somebody hasn't half been pigging out on the others.

Don't eat the white ones. Someone has sucked the colour off them!
