    These days they have to write report on the different materials they have hammered nails into and then reflect on how well they played with the big machines and if they still have all their fingers and other delicate bits afterwards.

    The square numbers. Doesn't that cause mayhem? Fighting to be 2, 9, 16 and 25?

    Ah... the secret is to alternate it with rewards for primes, and not tell them which until they’ve lined up!

    That is the irony of it. We get back a set of books, following a marking scrutiny, only to find that we get a meaningless comment of the sort for which we would be criticised for putting in a student's book. I would love to see these 'scrutineers' deep marking our deep marking.

    @Grandsire: Evidence, evidence, bloody evidence! About ten years ago, I had an LO. During the feedback session, the observer pointed out to me that my LP contained, "No evidence of your knowledge base." I did not get the meaning at first, so the observer had to explain to me that he meant that I should have written down the knowledge underpinning the lesson, or at least a reference to a text book. You have to provide evidence that you know things! :confused:

    Ha ha. 4.

    Got it. Tell them retrospectively. I was worried about the potential for serious injury but I should have realised! ;)

    Textbooks... Even new ones are often full of errors, and (due to budgetary constraints) schools often only have ones that are far from up to day anyway! :mad:

    @Pomza: Sloblocks of the first water, I agree!

    @strawbs : I suppose the only evidence I could have shown him were my degree certificates. In this 'Twilight Zone' world though, he might have countered these by claiming that they were only evidence that I once knew something, not that I did at the time of the LO.
