Logic in Math Class

My students had a quiz this week and there were logic circuits on the quiz. The directions required the student to "write a logical statement using the diagram." Since I didn't emphasize that their answers should be in the form of a *symbolic* statement, one student decided to only write an English statement, which would have been alright if the student had done it correctly.

Here is what the student wrote:
"If it is delicious it is fried or it is not pork, but if it is fried it is pork."

This is funniest while grading at 2 am. The handwriting only makes it funnier.

Crazy, chaos, unorganized, hectic, busy...

These words decribe my life at the moment.

In the middle of beginning a new semester, for which I am teaching 8 class total, 4 for two different colleges, we are moving to a house with my parents, brother, and a friend... Three separate "families" coming together is not easy to organize.

Daba Town has relocated, but the citizens are happy and healthy - just busy.

I want to continue to write blogs and I have accumulated some funny things that have happened (also some crazy things, frustrating things, and sad things).

So I guess this is to be continued. :)
