I’m no math whiz. In fact I am a typical right brainer. I admit that I even had to look it up to see which side of the brain governs what mode of thinking. Right is creative and artistic whereas the left-brain is rational and logical…kinda like Spock in the Star Trek series.
Why all this talk about ½’s and wholes? Well today in my local paper there was an article about teacher raises and how since some got raises other jobs face elimination. The end result is a larger class. Larger by 7/10’s of a student.
Now this evokes all sorts of pictures in my right brain method of thinking. Does the student stand in the hallway and poke his arm and leg in the door? Since no right-brainer in their right minds would divide a student up into ten pieces, (Other than Pablo Picasso) I am assuming a left brainer came up with it. Personally when something is above 5/10’s I round up. So how about saying the class sizes would be increased by one! Logical? Hmmm-- maybe I’m starting to use my whole brain ya think?
