Thinking Outside The Non-Existent Box

| Learning | March 13, 2017

(We are in math class, learning about volume. The teacher is currently talking about the volume of boxes.)

Teacher: “Would the volume of this box change if you submerged it underwater?”

Class: “No.”

Teacher: “And [Student #1]! Would the volume of the box change if it caught on fire?”

Student #1: “No.”

Me: “Actually, it would. The box would burn and it wouldn’t hold anything anymore.”

Teacher: “What if the box was fireproof, [My Name]?”

Me: “Then it wouldn’t catch on fire in the first place.”

Teacher: “…touché.”
