    History of Math in America


    Last week I purchased a drink at Burger King for $1.58. The counter girl took my 2 one dollar bills. I then pulled 8 cents from my pocket and gave it to her. She stood there, holding the nickel and 3 pennies, while looking at the screen on her register. I sensed her discomfort and tried to tell her to just give me two quarters, but she hailed the manager for help.

    Why do I tell you this?
    Because of the evolution in teaching math since the 1950s:

    1. Teaching Math In The 1950s A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit?

    2. Teaching Math In The 1960s A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price, or $80. What is his profit?

    3. Teaching Math In The 1970s A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80. Did he make a profit?

    4. Teaching Math In The 1980s A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80 and his profit is $20. Your assignment: underline the number 20.

    5. Teaching Math In 1990s A logger cuts down a beautiful forest because he is selfish and inconsiderate and cares nothing for the habitat of animals or the preservation of our woodlands. He does this so he can make a profit of $20. What do you think of this way of making a living? Topic for class participation after answering the question: How did the birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down their homes? (There are no wrong answers, and if you feel like crying, it's ok.)

    6. Teaching Math In The 2000s Same question as number 5 but if you have special needs or just feel you need assistance because of race, color, religion, sex, age, childhood memories, criminal background, then don't answer and the correct answer will be provided for you.

    7. Teaching Math In 2011 Un hachero vende una carrtada de maderapara 100 pesos. El costo de la producciones es 80 pesos. Cuanto dinero ha hecho?

    A woman was having an affair while her husband was at work. One day she was in bed with her boyfriend when, to her horror, she heard her husband’s car pull into the driveway.

    “Oh My God – Hurry! Grab your clothes,” she yelled to her lover. “And jump out the window. My husband’s home early!”

    "I can’t jump out the window. It’s raining out there."

    "If my husband catches us in here, he’ll kill us both", she replied.

    So the boyfriend scoots out of bed, grabs his clothes and jumps out the window.

    As he began running down the street in the pouring rain, he quickly discovered he had run right into the middle of the town’s annual marathon.

    Being naked, with his clothes tucked under his arm, he tried to “blend in” as best he could.

    After a little while, a small group of runners, who had been studying him with some curiosity, jogged closer.

    “Do you always run in the nude?” one asked.

    “Oh yes” he replied, gasping in air.

    Another runner moved alongside. “Do you always run carrying your clothes under your arm?”

    “Oh, yes” he answered breathlessly. “That way I can get dressed right at the end of the run and get in my car to go home!”

    Then a third runner cast his eyes a little lower and queried. “Do you always wear a condom when you run?”

    “Only if it’s raining.”

    I was visiting my daughter last night when I asked if I could borrow a newspaper.

    'This is the 21st century,' she said. 'We don't waste money on newspapers. Here, use my iPad.

    I can tell you this... That fly never knew what hit him!

    A man walked into work on Monday with two black eyes. His boss asked what happened.

    The man said, "I was sitting behind a big woman at church. When we stood up to sing hymns, I noticed that her dress was caught in her crack, so I pulled it out. She turned around and punched me square in the eye."

    "Where did you get the other shiner?" the boss asked.

    "Well," the man said, "I figured she didn't want it out, so I pushed it back in.
