The Mad Minute

While commercials say that math is power, when I was in school, math was The Mad Minute. We were all given these sheets, which had lots of math problems on them – and had just one minute in which to do them all.

They were all passed out, face down. Then it was a race. The first person done got to read all of his or her answers allowed, until a miss. If there was one wrong, the second place finisher had a chance for the glory… and so on, and so on. The winner would get… something. Depended on the teacher, frankly, but in most cases it was candy. If the teacher was cheap, you got a pencil or eraser. Ooooh! -pm
