Graduation Math.

Tags: , , , ,

You see… math is important.

The amount of noise made by family members during the ceremony algebra-cartoonis inverse to the amount of success the graduate may experience later in life.

The higher the temperature inside the gymnasium/auditorium increases the length of the graduation ceremony.

The number of programs printed equals the number of programs being used as fans during graduation.

The larger number of graduation party invitations sent out increases the odds of the graduate receiving luggage as gifts.

10% of all graduates wish they could remain in high school.  That number only increases with time.

    I LOVE the cartoon you chose! The student could easily be my 13 year old daughter. And I have to admit, that most of the math she is being made to do now, is math I have NEVER used later in life!!!!

    I take offense when people claim that they will never and have never used the mathematics learned in school later in life. Every time you make decisions to solve a problem you are using the skills you learned in math class. Yes you can solve problems without math. But, the learning the processes to solve complex problems in math help you more easily solve those complex problems in “real life”.

    Our graduation was Friday night. We graduated 25 or so seniors. The ceremony lasted 2 hours. When I was in college. I graduated with about 600 other students and the ceremony lasted just over an hour. That is definitely some “new” math!

    Given where I grew up, the first sentence gave me my first laugh on a Monday morning.

    Argh! That first one is definitely true! Sometimes during graduation I want to stand up (from the front row), turn around, and give those parents the death glare. Seriously people, have you no class? =)
