Go to Heaven means good; Good means Positve

Not Hann but Hann's Mummy said...

was teaching my Sec 5s Transformation and I have to keep reminding them that "move up is positive and move down is negative".

Then one student, frustrated that his classmates are still not getting it right, shouted to the rest of the class:
"moves up means go to heaven; so it's good; good is positive;
moves down means go to hell; so it's bad; bad is negative."

Woh. how come I've never thought of that.

so how do you do parallel with "right is positive; left is negative?"
(think about it before scrolling down, then post ya ideas in the comments)

Faithful One by Vineyard
This I offer back to him... and the rest of the class.

Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father (Ephesians 1:20) so that's good, good is positive.

Ha. I never thought we can infuse the Gospel into Math lessons too.

Last time when I was teaching Physics, I had many chances to make referances / draw parallels to Jesus and I always thought I can't do the same in Math.

Once again, I marvel at how much we can learn from God, as well as from my students, everyday.

but then... this is the last year that Transformation is in the syllabus. sigh.

nonetheless, I felt really happy for the rest of the day.

I like the analogy your student used! And yours too! Ya, never know teaching maths also can talk about Jesus. Hehe...
