Real Life Application

A kid came into class and said, "Ms. Pissed Off, I have a math joke for you."

I told him to go ahead and tell me.

"I met a girl last night. I told her I want to be the sin squared to her cos squared so together we can be one."

Since I am always telling them math jokes, it felt good to be hearing one. The rest of the class then informed me that that line was from Beauty and the Geek the previous night. Maybe it wasn't an original joke, but it was a joke using math, nevertheless. The kids were thrilled to find a real life application of the things they were learning in class. They were also proud of being geeky enough to get the joke.
