Stuart's Spectacular Students

This is dedicated to my amazing students. The goal is for each and every one of them to feel unstoppable by the time they walk out of the classroom door for the final time in May. This chronicles their journey; their own Chronicles of Self-Actualization.

Math Trick from Your New Zealand Fan Tui

UNBELIEVABLE MATH TRICK

Here is a math trick so unbelievable that it will stump
you. Personally I would like to know who came up with
this and why that person is not running the country.
Grab a calculator (you won't be able to do this one
in your head)


1. Key in the first three digits of your phone number
(NOT the Area Code...)

2. Multiply by 80

3. Add 1

4. Multiply by 250

5. Add to this the last 4 digits of your phone number

6. Add to this the last 4 digits of your phone number
again

7. Subtract 250

8. Divide number by 2


Do you recognize the answer??

    I hope you new school, Belle, is everything you deserve - which is A LOT!

    Nick? As in Dr. Lachinski Nick???? If so, I have also spoken of you several times as an example of someone going from being bored to teaching other students about your higher-level learnign in science.
