//9th period history Ms Pisini: "Don't your parents tell you, 'I appreciate you just the way you are'?" Entire class at once: "NO"
Giles: Richard supposedly failed the unit circle quiz over and over again on PURPOSE until I gave it out on yellow paper. For Asian pride.
Giles: This review packet is worth the mystical, magical number of points that it takes so that if you don’t do it, it will lower your grade to a something-point-nine-four. For example, if your grade is an 87.4, if you don’t do the review packet, your grade will drop to a 79.4. Class: WHHAATT??!??! Giles: I’m kidding. But I want you to do the review packet!!
Random Jewish student: Mr. Giles, those alpha symbols look like Jesus fish. I’m offended. Giles: Umm… (The next class, when reviewing last night’s homework) Giles: So, if SIN^2(Star of David) + COS^2(Star of David) = 1, then…wow. It’s really hard to say “Star of David” after every function in trig identities.
Giles (referring to person riding a Ferris wheel on the board): He’s high, he’s low, he’s high, he’s low, it’s a sine graph! Ashu: Ha-ha, he’s high! Giles (sarcastically): Hilarious.
Rose: Giles, I’m getting some coffee, you want any? Giles: No, but you should open it up to the rest of the class. Several students: I want some! Rose: Sure, I’ll get anything—coffee, a pony… Lily: I want a pony! //Rose leaves. Lily (to Sadie): I don’t think he’s getting me a pony, Sadie…
Giles: We need a symbol to show that this cosine graph repeats itself. Jay: How about a dead fish? Giles: A dead fish? What? I am NOT drawing a dead fish on the end of this graph.
Ashu (referring to something): This is the greatest snowball ever. Giles: The greatest snowball ever is the one that hits YOU in the stomach.
Giles (while yelling at us for talking too much): This is absurd! If you didn’t spend time reading labels on water bottles and having side conversations about orange juice, we might actually accomplish something.
Giles: Number Three will look like this—ERRUUP! (Draws cubic function on a graph while making a strange sound). You don’t have to use the sound effect if you don’t want to.
