Math = Love: I plead the fifth...

I plead the fifth...

Sometimes I wonder how my students describe to others what we are learning in Algebra 1.  Yesterday, I ended up giving impromptu lessons over article adjectives and what it means to plead the fifth.  We do talk about math, I promise!

Student: "Why did you write 'crosses x-axis' when you said 'crosses the x-axis?'''
Me: "We don't always write out article adjectives when taking notes."
Student: "What's an article adjective?"

And, yesterday's quote of the day:

Student: "Are we your favorite class?"
Me: "I plead the fifth." 
Student: "So, fifth hour is your favorite class?"
