Gone are the days where students are forced to sit in a stuffy classroom listening to tenured zombies, who would much rather be watching Days of Our Lives, ramble on about learning. They have Twitter now! It's 2017! OF COURSE that's where they're educating themselves. Admittedly, student or not, I use Twitter quite a bit in the name of academia as well — what can I say? I'm a student of life!
One such moment happened today when I came across a thread SO mind-blowing it's any wonder how Third Grade teachers (JUST THE MATH ONES) all over the world haven't been brutally fired for their ineptitude. Go ahead — learn, my friends! You can thank me later.
i just found out that the division symbol (÷) is just a blank fraction with dots replacing the numerator and denominator. oh my god.— abdul 🚀 (@Advil) September 11, 2017
The = symbol was specifically designed to be two lines of visibly equal length. Unbeatable design.— Derwin McGeary 🥃🇪🇺 (@derwinmcgeary) September 11, 2017
in addition to the percent % there is also a ‰ for thousandths and ‱ for ten thousandths— 🇺🇸 vex addict 🇺🇸 (@valrus) September 12, 2017
The infinity symbol came about from the number 8 being bowled over by learning all these fun facts.— Ellis Pratt (@ellispratt) September 12, 2017
Pretty eye-opening, huh?! For those of you with children in Elementary school, go ahead and pull them out now, set them up with a Twitter account, and keep it movin'.
