Man Solves for X, again depriving X the Opportunity to Learn for Themself
How can 13-year-old X McXson be expected to grow when there is always the variable of Mr. Beardsly just doing their homework for them?
Mr. Beardsley once again just doing the work his students.
Monday, April the thirteenth was Pythagorean theorem day in Mr. Beardsley’s virtual classroom and all his students were noticeably excited to learn how to find the hypotenuse of a triangle. One after one, the youngsters raised their hands and explained why a2 + b2 = c2 with flawless execution. This pattern, however, did not continue when Mr. Beardsley called upon X McXson to explain how the theorem relates to the ever so famous 3 4 5 triangle.
Just as soon as the words left Mr. Beardsley’s mouth all hope was lost. “Go ahead, solve for X.” Immediately, as if animal instinct took over, Mr. Beardsley whipped out his calculator and solved for X, for X.
Best of luck to those in the class who may be struggling to find themselves as Mr. Beardsley introduces imaginary numbers next week.
