    <In year 10 or 11>, the top-set students don't say "please": they're too arrogrant. The middle set students say "please", because they're nice kids. The bottom set students say "now, or I'll put your windows out."
    Just thought I'd share that one

    I was one of the top set kids and I always said 'Please' and 'Thank-You'...

    Me too. But I thought it wouldn't be fair to censor the quote. (Edit: Well, thankyou certainly, maybe not please...)

    When would you ever say thanks in a maths class anyway?

    Thanks for giving me all this implicit differentiation to do?

    We had a very cool maths teacher, until he got sacked for having an affair with the girl in the year above (year 11) Luckily we did our GCSEs a year early so we'd finished by the time he left. As a top set we were supposed to be getting all A*s and As but only 6 of us managed As an dthe rest Bs and Cs

    Our maths teacher said to us the other day 'Its not strictly necessary to do this, but I WILL factorising because I find it enjoyable'.
    Another frequently used one is 'An examiner would love me to take all of your exams because they would be beautiful things for him to mark. However it is against the law, which is a shame, and if it was up to me Id change it, but it is, so please copy things down neatly.' He says it exactly like that EVERY lesson..
