The Gorilla Experiment

10 Dec

As I mentioned in a previous post, I started watching the Big Bang Theory and reward myself after a day of teaching and planning with an episode here and there.  I still don’t know how I didn’t get into this show sooner. The latest episode I watched pretty much summed up my feelings/frustrations as a physics teacher in a humorous way.

It’s a bit long at 9 minutes but worth the watch since I took the time to post it in a way that would not be blocked. The best part starts at the 2 minute mark.

This interaction typically happens at least once a day. I have replaced Sheldon and Penny’s part with myself and a student.

Me: Where’s your notebook?
Student: Uuum, I don’t have one
Me: How are you going to take notes without a notebook?
Student: I have to take notes?
Me: How else are you going to study for the test?
Student: There’s going to be a test?
Me: Testsssssss
