But, I digress. I do feel guilty about the fact I have not posted something for over a week now, but, as I mentioned above, I have not been motivated, or maybe I should say, I haven't been inspired. Too tired! But, I do remember getting a flash of inspiration while watching The Daily Show with Jon Stewart last week. I love that show - always good for a giggle and a "I can't believe they said that" reaction. I was really pleased to see his 'math' comparison from the two political conventions. Hilarious. This is what I want to share today in my post - some humor and some math. As a math educator, it scares me to hear and see all these statistics bandied about with little fact or understanding behind them, and I hope that math educators are using these opportunities to help their students understand the use and misuse of math in the real-world.
So - enjoy. Fast forward to 2:35 to get to the section about math. As Jon says "Math. Numbers. Facts. Oh, I never thought I'd say this, but I have missed you so much math!"
