I got this by email from friend G.H.:

The evolution in teaching math since the 1950s:

__Teaching Math In 1950__

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit?

__Teaching Math In 1960__

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price, or $80. Whatis his profit?

__Teaching Math In 1970__

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80. Did he make a profit?

__Teaching Math In 1980__

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80 and his profit is $20 Your assignment: Underline the number 20.

__Teaching Math In 1990__

A logger cuts down a beautiful forest because he is selfish and inconsiderate and cares nothing for the habitat of animals or the preservation of our woodlands. He does this so he can make a profit of $20. What do you think of this way of making a living?

Topic for class participation after answering the question: How did the birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down their homes? (There are no wrong answers.)

__Teaching Math In 2005__

Un ranchero vende una carretera de madera para $100. El cuesto de la produccion era $80. Cuantos tortillas

se puede comprar?
