Pretend to be Nice

Teacher-Moms, on the edge…

Leah: I know!

Yeah, you think you know everything, but you’re 11.  I thought I knew everything when I was 11 too, but you don’t, and you won’t, believe me, until you have an 11 year old.

Since you don’t believe me and you know that you know everything, I will quit asking that ridiculous rhetorical question and ask if you know the quadratic formula instead.

That worked for about a week with my son (he was 5 at the time) until he called my mother (also a math teacher) and memorized that formula and then waited patiently for me to utter those 6 words and BAM!

What’s the first quadrant of the unit circle then?
