Mathematical role playing

mathematical-role-playing-zero-dean

Confession of the day:

Sometimes when I’m walking across the gym parking lot towards the doors and I find myself gaining on someone, I feel like I’ve inadvertently become a role player in a wordy math problem…

“If Zero Dean exits his car at the far end of the parking lot walking 3 mph, and Bobby Shortlegs exits his car midway and walks at 2 mph, at what point will Zero overtake his parking lot racing adversary?”

And that’s when I like to throw a wrench in the whole math word problem scheme by exercising my free will and doing something completely unpredictable like spinning in circles or hopping on one leg while shouting “You’re not the boss of me!” at the great math word problem gods in the sky.
