The things that stick

I just got back from watching our girls win another basketball game – they’re 6-0 and headed to playoffs. As I entered the stands at the beginning of the game, one of my students saw me and literally leaped to her feet. She called my name and then, thinking very carefully, announced, “y…equals…m…x…plus b!” and followed it immediately with a triumphant “YES!” She looked at me as if she’d just won a Nobel Prize in mathematics, then sat down and resumed watching the game.

If only that was all she was supposed to learn this unit… but I do love the enthusiasm.

    Perhaps surprisingly, but actually due to the acrimony of a love triangle, Alfred Nobel never endowed a prize in mathematics. The honor of equivalent prestige in mathematics is probably the Fields Medal, established in 1932 and awarded by the International Mathematical Union every four years to a variable number of recipients not over the age of 40.
