//Logic period 7 //Rose walks out of room for an errand //Jonah goes to front of classroom Jonah: WOOO WOOO WOOO!!! Alllllright... period 7! //Rose walks in Rose: My meta-strategy is to have a few catchphrases, so that my true flaws aren't emulated by students.
//Logic period 7 Rose: Back then, I didn't have a camera for recording classes. Some students would bring in cameras but they would be so low resolution that you couldn't see anything. But, you know, the CAP teachers have these awesome cameras, and I kept borrowing it from them. There was a nice CAP teacher and a mean one. I would keep going down there and beg like a child to the CAP teacher, and I just humiliated myself every day. Then one day, the mean CAP teacher was in charge, and I asked for the camera and he was just like "NO". I begged again and he was like "NO. You don't need it." So that's why I have my own camera now.
//Logic, proving that the rationals are countable //About 25% of the class is asleep Rose: All asleep people wake up!! Rose: Wait, actually sleep for 30 more seconds because I have to draw this annoying chart on the board
//Logic Rose: Don't ever whisper something to me quietly just before I'm about to say "Alright". Like, don't quietly ask "can I take all your money", because then I'll say something like "Good good good!".
Rose: Eli tweeted me about his propositional logic helper at 3 AM. It's hilarious how that's the way he communicates. //pause Rose: Well, it's probably the fastest method of communication with me.
Rose: Over thanksgiving break I was listening to this podcast that was named, "Archimedes good, Galileo bad". The entire podcast was about how Galileo was not as smart as his contemporaries. Like, at the time there was this famous problem, finding the area under a cycloid. It's like 3. He mailed this to all his friends like Descartes. And Descartes, in his usual arrogant manner, was like "Just recently... I mean just yesterday... well actually earlier this morning, I received this problem in the mail, and after just an hour, I have solved it completely; it really wasn't that hard". But Galileo couldn't do it. He tried to cut out pieces of paper and weigh them accurately... Class (mumbling): Calc R&E... Rose: Yeah, like Calc R&E, and he got pretty close to 3, and he said that, but he was like "The answer is fairly close to 3, although from experimental verification, the answer seems to be slightly greater than 3". Basically, Galileo was not that smart as our history textbooks make him out to be.
//After a public announcement on Troy Story 3 Jonah: You should go see Troy Story 3, Mr. Rose. It-- Rose: No.
//Logic period 7 Rose: That's the problem with rigor fetishists. They are never satisfied! They want more! more! more!
// logic class // after a super long proof problem done on one page // super neat handwriting William: Problem 46 has turned me into an Asian girl. Favid: That’s the purpose of this class.
//Logic Rose: There was an entire branch of math called "screwing around with Pascal's triangle".
