Math Quotes III: Five out of Four People

[Rescued from my old blog.]

I’ve been procrastinating my preparations for co-op classes this week, but I think I’m ready. I almost forgot the scissors, but now I have them in my bag, so we will be able to cut the “infinite pizza” pieces. And I have two fun quotes for the blackboard:

Five out of four people have trouble with fractions.

—Steven Wright

Arithmetic is being able to count up to twenty without taking off your shoes.

—Mickey Mouse

Both of these were from the website LivingMath.net. This website offers a wealth of ideas to enrich any math program.
