I don’t make this stuff up… I just write it down.
What you are about to read is a 10-minute picture-text conversation between me and a former student who attends college across town…
Me: Don’t bother coming by my classroom today because I have a FaceTime meeting I forgot about.
Student: Yes ma’am. I can save my questions for next week if that’s more convenient for you.
Me: But when is your exam?
Student: Good question. I think Thursday.
Me: Well then coming next week will be fine.
Student: It’s not even so much for the exam though. He briefly mentioned impartial integrals and he’s not very complete in his explanations. It seemed a little more significant than he let on…
Me: Partial Fractions? Improper integrals?
Student: Improper. Sorry.
Me: Ah yes. They are important. Not sure how in depth you’ll go in cal 2 but very cool. Consider these two integrals.
Me: Both represent the area under the curve of a decreasing function.
Me: However one converges and one diverges.
Me: Look at my levitating eraser.
Student: No one doubted your Jedi skill.
