my math professor:

- keeps saying "hell yeah, baby"

- writes "function" as "FUNction" with the corresponding emphasis and pause when he writes it

- went "eugh, robots" when someones siri went off in their pocket

- said "you see that show tidying up with marie kondo? every single one of these sparks joy in my heart" while going over a bunch of example problems

- said "we're gonna go ham on this then" while factoring a polynomial

update on math professor: he just kinda paused and looked off into space in the middle of class and wistfully went "DAMN there's so many awesome functions."

more of my math professor:

"if you have a graph, don't worry about it. if you don't have a graph... start worrying." - on function symmetry

"The tech people they just, they don't respect me." - while wrestling with graph software

"I don't need no control panel, I'm just reading a book!" - while wrestling with adobe acrobat

"who the hell wants to cube like, negative three and do stuff to it like that."

"CAN YOU DIG IT!!" - upon graphing a function he thought was cool

my math professor showed us an easier way to solve a problem, then wrote "ez way©" next to it on the board and said "yeah I copyrighted that shit."

I forgot to mention that every time my math professor gives us a quiz he says "please don't get anything wrong. it makes it so much harder for me."

This makes me wonder what stories students are going to tell about me when I start teaching. I suppose this is what I can aspire to.
