數學沒及格

  我兒子是印第安那市曼西爾波州立大學的學生,大學一年級就上了系主任的名單。第二年他學心理學,剛幾個星期他就給家裡打了個電話。

  「媽媽,」他激動地說:「我找到了如何在大學裡生存下去的答案!重要的不是分數,而是具備將學到的知識應用於日常生活的素質。我很幸運地有了這種奇妙的經歷。」

  「你到底是什麼意思?」我問道。

  「我數學沒及格。」他回答說。

Flunking Math

My son, who made the dean's list in his freshman year at Ball State University in Muncie, Ind., called home a few weeks after starting his sophomore year as a psychology student.

"Mom," he said excitely, "I have found the answer to surviving college! It isn't the grades that are so important, but the quality of what is learned and how it is applied to daily life. I'm lucky to be having these wonderful experiences!"

"And just what does this mean?" I asked.

"I'm flunking math," he replied.
