Working It

Yesterday I did 7.65 miles in 30 minutes in 90+ degree weather. That's an average of 15.3 miles per hour. I have to explain this since 71% of adults can't even calculate miles per gallon. I blame the math teachers.

58% of students can't figure out 10% tip?!


You morons!


I mean, seriously. Either these numbers are whacked or our students are.

It's not the math teachers, it's the people who undervalue math in school. It's something that we always need, and seldom is recognized for the importance it has.
