Join me today for Volume 9 of Things Teenagers Say. This is my regular round-up of the crazy and memorable things I hear my students say in class. It’s been a little while since my last edition of Things Teenagers Say.
Things Teenagers Say
You look like you’re dead.
Thanks! I blame the document camera.
Student A: You’re 23, right?
Me: No, I’m 24.
Student B: Of course she’s 24. We’ve only been talking about it ALL year.
Student: Your legs are so tan!
Me: It’s called panty hose.
Student: I know. I just can’t stop looking at your legs.
Me: And, we know that the slope of every vertical line is undefined.
Student: Is that language really necessary?
Oh no! I just used the worst curse word ever in math and in algebra in class!
There are 51 states, right?
You say “Uno” when you have two cards left, right?
Me: Unless you are texting someone that today is your math teacher’s birthday, your phone should NOT be out!
What do you get when you combine nutella and salmon?
Student: I’m glad you didn’t give us a test today. We’ve had like 8 tests today.
Me: It’s only 6th hour.
While doing a worksheet that asks students to write an inequality symbol that correctly compares two students.
Student: I need some help.
Me: Okay. Which problem are you on?
Student: Number of inches in a yard.
Me: And, what’s your question?
Student: How am I supposed to know how big their backyard is?
Me: [The look]
Student: Oh, that kind of yard.
There are definitely more oceans than continents.
Your Z’s look like the Hitler symbol.
Student A: Don’t so-and-so and so-and-so look alike?
Student B: They’re twins!

Student B: They’re fraternity twins!
