A Humorous Ten Day Syllabus for Pre-Calculus

I ran across this ten day syllabus for pre-calculus while searching for something else on google. It captured so many of the experiences I’ve had teaching Pre-Calc, that I thought I should share it on Twitter. My tweet was liked 881 times and retweeted 184 times, so I guess it resonated with a bunch of other math teachers as well.

Doug Shaw commented on my tweet to say that he wrote this in 2002 and it was published in The Australian Mathematics Teacher.
