You are a liar, no teacher is doing well including the principal, we know your salary, how can you survive with such a salary?

kudos to those children.

You are ignorant.
I am a part time teacher I teach in 5 schools
Run home lessons and have some international students I take classes.

Learn.
The lowest earner among my part time teachers club earns not less than a 100K let alone someone that introduced the system.
Learn to ask questions.
Don't compare our money to that of principal we even earn more than some small school owners if you sum our 4 months salary compare to their termly profit.
We work hard for our money don't call us a thief because we are a bite successful where many are unsuccessful.
Ask questions and learn.

Not funny, but the truth is that it's what the entire country has told them! Since 2019, I started lamenting the nonsense being transmitted into the minds of these young ones by the way our unintelligent agencies are acting and you all are cheering them. Nigeria hasn't seen anything yet! When EFCC — through their manner of operation and media propaganda — is fighting very hard to tell our children that the only thing that can be done with digital gadgets is fraud, what do you expect from those kids? It's a time bomb waiting to blow up. Just know that the minds of our kids have been corrupted by what they see on the media everyday!

As regards your income, sorry to say this, but if all your income is from teaching, you are wasting your talents. I mean, as a teacher, you can also offer copywriting services or graphics designing on Fiverr/Upwork and be earning more than 10x what you are paid as a teacher.
Smile do you know how much I earn as a teacher?.
If you earn x10 of it hmmmm

Explain the last statement please.
Do you mean I should go into programming.
If that's what you mean I have a programming camp for kids in Benin which I run during major holidays.
Please explain more on what I can do more with my talent as stated above.

Education / Felt Bad My Students Said I Am Into Yahoo, Teaching Can't Afford My Lifestyle by Mrshape: 9:25pm On Mar 30
Felt bad today when my sss1 students jokingly accused me of being an internet fraudster using teaching and corporate dressing as cover up.
I have to sit them down and school them there are teachers doing very well and show them some evidence that all my money is from teaching.
I don't really blame them some of their elder once might have told them you can only make it big with yahoo.

Have you being falsely accused to be an internet fraudster (yahoo) ?
How did you handle it?

Education / Mathematics Is A Sense Of Reasoning. Are Your Senses Complete? by Mrshape: 9:36am On Mar 27
Mathematics is a universal language if you don't understand it you are at the mercy of those who do~(ifada-2017)
Reflecting at my definition I see more than a means of communication I see an ability that if absent it can be a disability.

Like others senses such sight, feel, taste and more.
Mathematics is a sense of reasoning.
The big question is, are your senses complete?

This is food for taught for does who think it is OK not to know basic math.

Then it is OK not to see,
it is ok not to taste,
it is OK not to hear,
it is OK not to feel......
Just as it is OK not to reason.
Just as it is OK not to know how many minutes will 3 girls sweep a compound if 5 girls sweep it in 3 hours.

Again
are your senses complete?

Education / This Is The Most Untaught Topic In Secondary Mathematics. Were You Taught? by Mrshape: 7:18pm On Mar 26
Go in to your secondary school General mathematics note, check your children's note, you will find out that you or many of your children did not do it in school.
They only introduce them to logical connectors at best chain rule and simple set.
Test for validity is hardly and poorly taught.
Even some textbook don't fully understand what they are writing on the topic.
Were you taught?

Education / Re: What Is The Answer To This Confusing and Controversial Mathematics Question. by Mrshape: 6:10am On Mar 14
ShadowCracker:
I saw this question on Twitter, it was quite controversial so I have decided to bring it here smiley.

8 / 2 (2 + 2).

Order of Operations
1. Perform all calculations within parentheses and other grouping symbols
following the order listed in Steps 2–4 below, working from the innermost
pair of grouping symbols to the outermost pair.
2. Evaluate all exponential expressions.
3. Perform all multiplications and divisions as they occur from left to right.
4. Perform all additions and subtractions as they occur from left to right.

O1 : (2 + 2) = 4.
O3 : 8 / 2 (4) => 8 / 2 * 4 => 4 * 4 => 16.

At O3: I know some people will get 1, it is wrong wink.
8 / 2 (4) => 8 / 8 => 1 -------------- wrong.
Evaluation is from left to right.
The only scenario you will get 1 is if it is structured this way => 8 / ( 2 * (4) ).

In my opinion, 16 is the right answer, not 1, I would like to see other mathematicians' opinions on this.

cc: Martinez39s Mrshape luv2rolly Kylekent59 donaytexx1 stanliwise.
The answer is 16.
The problem is people fail to know the direction of movement in multiplication ad division which is left to right. ( note addition and subtraction is also left to right)
Education / Local Mathematics Competition For Mathematics Teachers by Mrshape: 8:10pm On Mar 12
Is there any local mathematics competition for private school teachers?
I know of cowbellpedial but a local one like local government will be more fun, where you will know the schools you are competing with.
But the funny thing is that most private schools will not allow their mathematics teachers participate.

donaytexx1:


My brother, I am really embarrassed by that terrible mistake I made. And I guess that was the kind of mistake that the textbook authors made in their solutions. If I had squared both sides (supposed to be done), I would have ended up with the right hand side being all squared, thus eliminating the occurrence of the silly mistake. But instead of squaring both sides, I simply took the square root operator from the left to the right hand side of the equation and, in the process, forgot that it should change from square root to square operator on the right hand side.

Please, I was tired and stressed out during the day, and wasn't reasoning straight again. Like you said, one must be very vigilant when solving math.

However let me repost my simplified version of the workings with the error corrected.

Thanks for pointing out the mistake. But then, pls try to be polite instead of being caustic when doing so next time; no one is above mistakes.

Thanks.
I am sorry for those words I used. it was out of anger.
thanks for making the correction it shows you really know what you are doing.

The correct answer is obviously 7.8

Here is a simplified approach to the problem.
I shake my head.
You took square root of both side to remove square root.
