Business math. This is a class filled with juniors and seniors who need an extra year of math but don't want to take a class like algebra 2 or calculus.
The teacher has uploaded all the necessary notes to the school's website. And she's obtained permission for her classes to use their smartphones to access those notes in class.
In theory. In practice...
"My phone can't access the site."
"I don't have a phone."
"The file's too big for me to download."
Of course, there are examples in the textbooks too. I could help them out. They could double up and get the notes along with a friend who has a phone that will work. Two boys asked for and were granted permission to go to the library to access the Internet there. But what did the majority of the class do?
Apparently, their phones work just fine for the Trivia Crack app.
And it's the last day before a four-day weekend. And they have a sub. And they're not that into math anyway.
