    Heya

    I was just wondering what would be the most appropriate present for a maths teacher. I just found out today that she was leaving the job and I am still in shock:eek: She is literally the best maths teacher ever, but she was planning to leave anyway, after we have finished our GCSE's (which is in 3 months). She didn't tell anyone in class the reason to why she was leaving so suddenly (apart form me). I am really sad, because she is probably the only teacher that for me, made maths easy and fun, so in return, I want to give her something that she would not only remember me but the whole class by. Next friday is her last day and I need to buy her something beforehand. I need urgent help!!

    Thanks a lot and all comments are appreciatedxxx

    What about an iPhone? Is that too much?

    EDIT: Wow! What a reaction! We gave our chemistry teacher an iPhone and she had been ecstatic about it. If the neggers think I was being sarcastic, or that it's an unreasonable gift, then they're wrong

    I'd love to, but I doubt that she would take it from me. Not that I don't want to buy it, it's just that she doesn't like taking really expensive things from anyone. Thanks anywayx

    What if it's from all the students? Everyone can contribute and it will be something from everyone. Say everyone contributed just a little with those puppy dogs uppyeyes (even if they didn't lol no one would back off from taking credit!)

    a HD tv?

    Who doesn't like TV?
    I would love too, but she is going back to her country. I doubt that you'll be allowed to carry a HD TV in the aeroplane

    Do you know anything about what she likes?? I used to have a teacher in high school who was amazing, she spent an hour every week talking to me and helping me out with work etc during her free period. I knew she loved reading so I got her a book token to say thank you when I left the school

    She's exactly like the way you describe your teacher! Well, she LOVES MATHS!!That's for sure. She likes everything really, so she wouldn't make a fuss out of anything that I would buy her. Thanks a lot

    How much money do you have? Even if you're talking about a group present, that's still a hell of a lot of money- I couldn't nearly afford one for myself, let alone put towards one for someone else!!

    Perhaps something like an engraved pen? You can get one to suit almost any budget and you could have a message to help her remember you all.

    Sorry for the unreasonable suggestion :blush:
    I have enough to afford an iPhone but when we got it for her, it was the thirty of us and we were really going to miss her thought if she could do so much for us, we should also do something she may never forget.

    From Mankind you can get a wrongulator (I think that's it). Basically, it is calculator that always gives the wrong answer. I've bought it to give to my teacher, so when pupils forget their calculators she can give them that . Or just keep it if she decides to be nice.

    Or everyone in the class could remember 50 digits of pi (e.g. you remember 1-50, someone else remembers 51-100) and you could spend your last lesson reciting it to her. Or make up a song about it.

    I would go for a sort of mathsy-mug liketw one above, or there's a clock on amazon which has all the numbers as little equations eg root16 instead of 4.

    I'd also bake a cake with a few digits of pi iced on top (I can make pretty good cakes though, so I'm okay) and that would make for a nice final class.
