    Nate’s lucky. We actually get homework over the summer where I live.

    I was like that too. My best friend, Danny, was like, “Ooh, I’ve got $10 to spend on snacks. How many snacks will we get each?” and I was like, “No MATHS! PLEASE!”. We walked past a bookshop and the book on display was WAYS TO LEARN MATHS

    I think it’s a valid question. Gratification can be short-lived. You need to know where you can get the biggest bang for your buck.

    I had a student like Nate. Hated math…unless it was baseball stats.

    funny how often we use the things we learned is school in everyday life. Also how we thought how worthless those lessons were.

    School is partly to learn facts and partly to develop the brain. I use algebra all the time. “If a 298 gram tin of corn costs $1.28 and a 325 tin costs $1.55, which is cheaper?” Math also develops parts of the brain that cannot be measured but help us with our reasoning.

    The best math is the type that calculates future value of an investment!

    Assuming most arcades at the time take quarters, they can play 15 games in total

    I think Skeeball is the only game where the game does not cheat.
