This is an entry full of 'perasan'ness so if you think you won't be able to stand it, sile jgn bace hehe..
I was teaching my form 4 class just now and we were doing straight lines. One of the questions required the calculation of the midpoint for the straight line and since they supposedly just learnt it last year for their PMRs, I was suprised when they drew blank faces when I asked them to tell me the formula for it.
I repeated the question a second time and was 'rewarded' with more blank faces. Sighing, I wrote down the formula in front while membebeling on how nyanyuk they were. They argued its been months since they had to use it (and my form 5 student who took this class for revision purposes argued its been 2 years since she last used it) so I turned to them and told them, its been 15 years since I first learnt this, yet I still remember it!
..which I shouldn't have been suprised when they scrambled to find their calculators while a few were clearly doing some mental calculations!
I was like, "Whaaaaat?!?!"
And to my pleasure, they accused me of exaggerating my age just so I could rub it in their faces on how teruk their memories were hahaha.. when asked how old did they actually think I was, I was awarded with a BEAUTIFUL 22 hahah..
Hey! I just told them my ACTUAL age okay.. well, give or take around 12 days la =p And they didn't believe me.. that was enough to make me kembang tak hengat! Especially when they kept speculating on my real age as they still didn't believe it
But of course started to kempis balik when the unavoidable next question came, "Cikgu tak kawen lagi ke?"
