Let’s go down the memory lane. I was in high school in the third year.

Our class teacher had given us homework. We were given an equation which we were required to find values of x and y. From the values, we were required to draw a graph containing a perfect U line.

Equations which required one to draw a graph was my favourite subject in mathematics.

I did the calculations in my mathematics exercise book by finding three values for x and other three numbers for y. On the graph book, I drew the graph.

The next day, in the morning the class prefect collected our books to take them to the teacher in the staffroom. I had forgotten to include my mathematics book that included how I found the value of x and y.

Later in the day, our class monitor gave us back our books. This was what was written on my graph book (remembering I forgot to include my maths book to be signed): “Introvert, you are a genius. You can draw a graph without a table. Shame on you.” Then what followed was a right with a signature whose effect faded after several pages.

My mom taught math for high school students. But I hated math.

My worst/funniest memories from school are related to math. ? Thank you for sharing this story!

Thank you. It will be great if you share your experience on maths.

??????That memory made me start my day with a smile. Thank you.

Thank you, Lacho59. Good to know you liked it.

Very fun memories. Even my favorite subject was mathematics.

Good to know that. I didn’t do fairly well but I do like it.

It happens. Thinking about more important things, you had forgotten less important things.

You are right. I thought the graph was more important.

Yes, that’s what I’m talking about. I know that from my own experience as a teacher and a good mathematician.

It is good to know you were a teacher and mathematician. That teacher resulted in my hating mathematics because of his attitude towards us whenever we failed maths exams.

That’s his big mistake. It’s not done that way.

Yes. He was very harsh. It will time to become good in maths at my current age.

What a funny and not so funny memory!

Yes, it was partly funny and.noy funny. The teacher had a beef on me. I don’t why.

well i was laughing until the last part that was sad.

i suspect the instructor would have been better served with asking “did you mean to not include your work?”

I found the comment funny. It was written in English since we are taught subjects in English except Kiswahili.

Yes, he should have said something like that. I wondered why he ended that comment in such a manner.

probably in a hurry, i remember having to grade 100 math tests.

Wow, that was huge. The largest I have done is 70.

i had to grade all the tests taken by 5 fifth grade tests as part of a study.

It was really hard.

Especially mathematics. It is quite a work to look through the steps.
