//Magnet Precalc Period 8, Talking about how the set of irrational numbers doesn't have closure with multiplication. Noah Gleason: You could do root 2 times root 2. Giles: Yeah, root 2 times root 2 is 1. -Students Laugh- (Giles realizes his mistake) Giles: Root 2 times root 2 is 2. I know how to math. Sometimes. -At the end of class- Patrick Klees: Hey Mr. Giles, has something like this happened before? Because I was going to put this on Blairbash.
Stein: I did see a lot of this on the homework and sometimes I see it on knowledge celebrations. [Students] do things like this: 'The median of this one is 17 and the median of this is 18. Q1 of this one is 14 and Q3 of this one is 12. The interquartile range of this one is 8 and the interquartile range of this one is 7. The fourth quartile da da da da da da da...' and I think of it as statistical diarrhea. That's a nice mental image, right?
