Sometimes my students say the greatest things – insightful, funny, or just plain poetic. Here are a few quotes from this year:
Zero is just a place – jk
Yup, pretty much.
I will never trust any data ever again – jk
Good. Just because it’s there, doesn’t mean it’s right. Be critical when examining everything.
The Alchemists tried to use Aristotle’s theory to create the impossible. – mn
This from a discussion of the history of atomic theory. One wonders if Aristotle had lost the argument, if we would have had advanced chemistry by the time of the Roman empire.
“If you add the word ‘quantum’ in front of anything, you sound smart. Like, ‘Quantum Water Bottle'”
-NG & AN
Oh, so true. Now where did I put my quantum coffee cup?
“Wow, it’s even in COLOUR” – NH
This was pronounced when we were looking at a real image projected onto paper by a concave mirror. I think I laughed for five minutes straight. Though, to be fair, she had computer science right before AP Physics, and had been working on how computers portray colour. But still a good giggle.
