I love Maths. I really do. After English and Chemistry, it’s probably my favourite subject in the world. But the teacher who teaches it at my school is a total failure at her job. I mean, I’ve had teachers who’ve made me fall in love with subjects I didn’t even like that much! But this ma’am… it’s like she’s determined to make me hate a subject I love! Which, naturally, pisses me off to no end. Not to mention her voice. Her. impossibly. annoying. voice. Ugh.
So, being the naturally rebellious person I am, I came up with a solution a few weeks back – a Maths class rebellion! 😀 In which I won’t be paying any attention in her classes. Of course, I’ll be updating my exercise copies, but that’ll be at home, when I’ll actually be practising Maths. At home, not at school.
Meanwhile during class hours, I planned to do something which tops my ‘Favourite things to do when I’m bored’ list. Something I’m actually quite good at. Writing random nonsense. 😛
So this is how my first Maths class rebellion went: (I’ll be omitting some parts because they’re written in Bengali and will lose their fun if translated.)
[The parts in italics have been added by me. They’ll help you understand better. Also, the lines within double quotes indicate words spoken by our dearest horrible teacher.]
She should just shut up.
“It is understood by all of us.”
Really? Does ‘all of us’ only include u, then?
“Perpendicular to this line.”
Ma’am, why don’t you change your voice?
Hunter Hayes has such a brilliant voice…
“Now, number 9.”
Which I’m not gonna do.
“Right, put it in the standard form, and multiply and divide by 4 throughout.”
I love Four.
No no no.
Allegiant is a very very very bad book.
I’m never ever ever gonna read it again.
“All the x should be changed to y, and all the y changed to x.”
OH GOD, THIS IS A DOUBLE PERIOD.
Rosie and Alex hated double periods. (‘Love Rosie’ reference there)
I totally empathise with them.
“Please do not talk.”
I will talk.
I know, I’m a very kind person.
I still hate her voice.
Ditsa agrees. (Ditsa is one of my besties at school. She totally crazy. Nuts. Gone case.)
She just made a dumb Maths joke.
Ma’am, not Ditsa.
We still have ‘Physics Lab’ written on our classroom door.
Which means we’re basically staying at the Physics lab.
How cool is that?
That was sarcastic, btw… I really hate Physics.
Apparently, there is only one thing which our dear ma’am doesn’t understand.
Why everyone keeps laughing in her class.
Ok, 30 mins left for the class to end.
30 is an even number. (I’m not that fond of even numbers, they just seem too plain and boring. Odd numbers are so much more interesting, don’t you think?)
At least 3 is an odd number. 😀
Uh, can we have an earthquake now? (We actually have been having quite a few earthquakes in our area lately. The day this was written was about 3 days after we’d had the first one. I swear, at that moment, everyone in the class was praying for another earthquake, just to get rid of the ongoing Maths class.)
Ditsa’s constantly poking me in the back.
What is it, Ditsa?
She says she finds it funny. (Weird girl)
I just realised, the parabola in my copy looks a bit like a telephone cord at one end. It’s all curly there…
Actually, telephone cords would look cooler if they were more colourfully painted.
Imagine green, blue, orange, yellow, red… (*insert infinite no. of colours here*) telephone cords all over the world.
I don’t particularly like fractions.
Decimal points are so much classier.
Although fractions are more convenient for calculations.
Alright, so she’s reading out our first-term syllabus now.
‘Syllabus’ is actually a pretty nice-sounding word.
Only its meaning has nothing nice about it. At all.
Why do all nice things have to have a twist like that?
It’s not fair.
My fair lady.
Now that is one beautiful phrase.
The word ‘beautiful’ actually sounds very beautiful.
And ‘elegant’ sounds so elegant.
So that was my first Maths class rebellion! This is actually giving me a lot of satisfaction, to be honest. *grins*
Anyway, tell me what you guys think about it! Should I keep posting the future ones?
