Paris Hilton Doesn't Do Math

In one of my Jr. High classes we are doing a project where they have to create a cartoon with a mathematical theme. Their TAKS test (state standardized test) is OVER! So we can do fun things now.

A student asked me if they could use magazine cutouts of celebrities and make them be the ones saying stuff. I told them that was fine, but to remember that the cartoon had to have math in it. The student then told me that it would have math and that is why they were not going to use Paris Hilton.


Oh the mind of a middle schooler!
