Cause And Defect

| Lincolnshire, England, UK | Learning | June 11, 2016

(We are studying some math problem that seems incredibly useless.)

Teacher: “…and the we move the square root of b to— Yes, [Student]?”

Student: “Why do we need to know this?”

Teacher: “Because it’s on your test.”

Student #2: “But why’s it on the test?”

Teacher: “Because you’ve learnt it.”

Class: “That’s so stupid.”

(The teacher left our school at the end of that year, and blamed our class for her early retirement.)
