I smell a rat…

Last Thursday, I’m teaching about various number systems and we get to “rational”. I ask, “Does anyone see a word hiding in there that can help us define what rational numbers are?” Without hesitation, a student, genuine as can be, yells, “RAT!!!” And that, my friends, is why I teach middle schoolers!

(And in case you were wondering, the word I was *hoping* for was “ratio”!)
