My last class of the day is physics. So you can imagine what mental state my students are in on a Friday afternoon! (me too, quite frankly). I try & make most Fridays a review of some sort, but this week we were actually learning new stuff.
At one point, a student was recalling the equation W=mg, but he accidentally said it equalled bg. Being the sort of person that I am, I said, "No, the answer is not a disco group from the 70s."
As the words left my mouth, I thought "oh dear, I'm the only one who's going to get that."
So imagine my delight when the other students piped up - 'oh yeah! they had [insert famous BeeGee song titleshere]'
I was feeling better.... until 2 girls broke into a rendition of "Manic Monday" (it's just another manic Monday...), thinking that was a BeeGees song.
Sigh. I guess it's hard to keep track of all those bands when you were born in the 90s.
