Worst Things That Could Happen During Math Class

The Top Ten
1 You have to sit next to the kid you hate

I will never forget about the day my 8th grade math teacher moved everyone's seats around the classroom and made me sit next to one of my bullies while completely ignoring our pleas to not be seated next to each other on Monday, 3/2/2020. Our desks were towards the front of the classroom as well, so she probably heard Laurynn gossiping about me for the few days we were next to each other in 3rd period.

One time I got stuck with a bunch of silly boys who did nothing but look up memes on their phones whenever the teacher's back was turned. I do NOT need to hear about dank weed while I'm dealing with tricky integrals, thank you very much.

Everything was fine in my math class until a guy I like as a friend switched with the person I hate. WHY. The person I hate always says I'm a failure and says I'm not enough and worse I have depression! Seriously?!

2 You doze off, the teacher calls on you to answer the question and you don't know the answer

One time, I fell asleep in a social studies lesson where the teacher was giving instructions on homework that was due the next day. Oops...

This happened to me in college like 2 weeks ago and it was really awkward.

I was day dreaming in math and then the teacher called on me and I was like, uh what? then I said oh its 67

3 The fire alarm goes off
4 Calculators are not allowed

I would hate to not be able to use a calculator in class.

5 You fail a test

Dad: Why you failed an simple test
Me: I didn't study
Dad: You're punishment is to watch Dora and Barney
Me: NOO!

I did this for humor, I mostly pass my tests with B's

I think what's more fearful is waiting for the teacher to give you your test so you can find out what grade you got.

I almost always fail my math tests.

6 You sit there, dazed and confused because you have no idea what the heck is going on anymore
7 Justin Bieber appears in one of the word problems

One time, we had to write about our favorite things and someone wrote about how "hot" Justin Bieber is. Worst 3 minutes of my life hearing her read it.

Justin Bieber is on every single list.
If the internet was like this in the 90s it would be Aaron Carter that's not an opinion that's a fact.

This never happened in a math class for me but on one test that I did from when I was in 6th grade science where the answer a Justin Bieber song appeared for a multiple choice question. And my sixth grade science teacher I am 99.99999999% sure that he is NOT a Justin Bieber fan.

8 You change seats and can't sit next to your crush

It didn't happen to me in math, but in science.

You know what's worse? Not having one at all.

This happens to me.

9 You forget to do the homework

That happened to me, so I did it in first hour! Hopefully the teacher didn't see me.

10 The teacher starts ranting about behavior

Especially when it's not even my fault - it was so annoying when this happened just because of a few troublemakers who weren't dedicated to studying maths in the first place. Thankfully I'm in the top class now where teachers never have to resort to this.

That's what my gym teacher does all the time.

The Contenders
11 You and your friends get separated because you were talking in class

I talk to my best friends in class no wonder The teacher doesn't let me sit by my friends

12 The substitute teacher is clueless

I've only ever had a sub in maths once and he was just as clued up on the work as my usual teacher - anyone who tries to screw around with subs at my college is either new or practically retarded.

It's a good thing. My sun was clueless about what homework to give us and it was 15 pages of Math but I told her that we must eat ice cream and make paper planes for homework. She believed it. Boom

13 You get too much homework

Luckily my maths class hardly ever gives us homework as all the emphasis is on self-study - it's a much better system as we can really focus on the stuff we're struggling with instead of doing our very best topics over and over again. There's only so much time in the day we can set aside for homework without retiring from life - if only Biology class understood that too...

Happens all the time

14 You forget your textbook

This happened to me one time, but he didn't notice since I kept my backpack in front of me.

My class always has a ton of spares.

15 You get lost in what the teacher is saying because they talk so fast for so long

I don't get as lost anymore, but my math teacher does this all the time.

16 A teacher comes in and shouts at the class

That would be funny.

17 The power goes out during a lesson
18 The teacher catches you drawing something inappropriate
19 Your teacher yells at you for not understanding how to do complex math

This happened to me back in spring 2016 when I was in 4th grade. My strict 4th grade teacher yelled at me once for not being able to understand a math problem despite having it explained to me several times and sent me out into the hallway. That was one of the dumbest reasons why I ever got in trouble.

20 You doze off and don't learn the material
21 You get distracted when the teacher is explaining something
22 Your chair breaks

That happened to me and I fell on the person behind me!

23 The teacher announces they need to be sick
24 Your teacher assigns homework on a lesson that hasn't been taught in class yet

Happened so many times. In my statistics class it happened OVER THE WEEKEND and it was so confusing, and I couldn't contact the teacher because she wouldn't respond to my emails!
