A place to brag.
(sequel of the last post) Then I said: "No, I'll just square both sides" and I wrote on the board (1/✔2)^2=(✔2/2)^2, then I wrote under it 1/(✔2^2=2)=(✔2^2=2)/4, so 1/2=2/4. All the class understood the equation (they didn't understand when mr.Q' explained it, because his explaination was way too complex) and started applauding me. Then he said: "But you know, there are many ways of proving math principles..." but the whole class knew I just busted him. Btw, after that he stopped choosing me when I raised my hand. I'm still proud.
Also, it's ok if you didn't understand the math bit. I just wanted to write what my proof was for the people who understood it.
I'm smarter than my english teacher and my math teacher!
We were reading a chinese legend, and the teacher explained the word metamorphosis because there was a man turning into a tiger in the story (my school is french so we don't learn english like english school, which is why we are talking about these stuff which are quite basic). The teacher explained that "morph" came from latin and meant shape, but she said she didn't know what "meta" meant. So, i raised my hand and explained it. Later in this class, I had finished my work while everybody was still working on it so I started chatting with the teacher because I had nothing else to do, and she told me: "You know, [insert my real name here], I think that you may actually be smarter than me". THIS IS A TRUE STORY! MY TEACHER TOLD ME I WAS SMARTER THAN HER! 💥😎👌
We have a trainee at our school that is known to be very bad at explaining things. Let's call him mister Q', because he is irrational. Now, we were talking about rational and irrational numbers, and there was this problem that involved giving a proof that 1/✔2=✔2/2. Now, he gave a super complicated explaination (1/✔2X✔2/✔2=✔2/✔4=✔2/2), and nobody understood. So I raised my hand and said: "I actually found a way simpler proof than that, can I show it?" and he gave me those firy eyes that meant "you're not smarter than me" (he knows I'm the best in math of my class) and he allowed me to go at the board but asked me to "go quickly because we odn't have time" (we had still 40 minutes left). So I wrote the equation again, 1/✔2=✔2/2, and THE MOMENT I FINISHED WRITING THE PROBLEM, he said: "What, you're going to a crossed product?"(something that you can usually do when two fractions are equivalent but there is one unknown, however it didn't apply here). To be continued...
