Teaching Math in America

Teaching Math in 1950:
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.
His cost of production is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit?

Teaching Math in 1960:
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.
His cost of production is 4/5 of the price, or $80. What is his
profit?

Teaching Math in 1970:
A logger exchanges a set "L" of lumber for a set "M" of money. The
carnality of set "M" is 100. Each element is
worth one dollar. Make 100 dots representing the elements of the set
"M." The set "C," the cost of production contains 20 fewer points than set
"M." Represent the set "C" as a subset of set "M" and answer the following
question: What is the carnality of the set "P" of profits?

Teaching Math in 1980:
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.
His cost of production is $80 and his profit is $20. Your assignment:
Underline the number 20.

Teaching Math in 1990:
By cutting down beautiful forest trees, the logger makes $20. What do
you think of this way of making a living? What's wrong about it?
Topic for class participation after answering the question: How did
the forest birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down the trees?
(There are no wrong answers.)

Teaching Math in 2000:
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.
His cost of production is $120. How does Arthur Andersen determine
that his profit margin is $60? And how many documents were shredded to achieve
this number?

Teaching Math in 2010:
El Loggero se habla with the truckero y se ponen de acuerdo con otro
driver de la competencia y etc...




It would be funnier if it weren't true!
