The Wrong Bitch

The train was very crowded, so the soldier walked the length of the train,
looking for an empty seat. The only unoccupied seat was directly adjacent to
a well-dressed middle-aged French lady and was being used by her little dog.
The war weary soldier asked, “Please, ma’am, may I sit in that seat?” The
French woman looked down her nose at the soldier, sniffed and said, “You
Americans. You are such a rude class of people. Can’t you see my Little Fifi
is using that seat?”

The soldier walked away, determined to find a place to rest, but after
another trip down to the end of the train, found himself again facing the
woman with the dog. Again he asked, “Please, lady. May I sit there? I’m very
tired.” The French woman wrinkled her nose and snorted, “You Americans! Not
only are you rude, you are also arrogant. Imagine! The soldier didn’t say
anything else; he leaned over, picked up the little dog, tossed it out the
window of the train and sat down in the empty seat.

The woman shrieked and railed, and demanded that someone defend her and
chastise the soldier. An English gentleman sitting across the aisle spoke
up, “You know, sir, you Americans do seem to have a penchant for doing the
wrong thing. You eat holding the fork in the wrong hand. You drive your
autos on the wrong side of the road. And now, sir, you’ve thrown the wrong
bitch out the window.”

Teaching Math

Changes in Teaching philosophy over the years.

Teaching math in the 1950’s:
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.00. His cost of
production is 4/5 of the price.  What is his profit?

Teaching math in the 1960’s:
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.00.  His cost of
production is 4/5 of the price, or $80.00.  What is his profit?

Teaching math in the 1970’s:
A logger exchanges a set  “L” of lumber for a set “M” of money.
The cardinality of set “M” is 100.  Each element is worth one dollar.

Make 100 dots representing  the elements of the set “M”.  The set “C”,
the cost of production contains 20 fewer points than the set “M”.
Represent the set “C” as a subset of set “M” and answer the following
question: What is the cardinality of the set “P” of profits?

Teaching math in the 1980’s:
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.00.  His cost of
production is $80.00 and his profit is $20.00.  Your assignment:
underline the number 20.

Teaching math in the 1990’s:
By cutting down beautiful forest trees, a logger makes $20.00.
What do you think of this way of making a living?  Topic for class
participation after answering the question:  How did the forest birds
and squirrels feel as the logger cut down the trees?  There are no
wrong answers.

Teaching math in 2002:
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.00.  His cost of
production is $120.00.  How does  Arthur Anderson  (Enron Corp.
auditing firm) profit margin is $ 60.00?

Teaching math in 2010:
El hachero vende un camion carga por $100.00. El costo de production
