Odd math dream

Odd math dream
Many years ago I studied at University attempting to earn a BS in Mathematics. I don't often have dreams about math. In fact, almost never.
Last night I had a dream that I was back in school and the teacher was returning our papers to us. The math problems were very simple. Addition, division, etc. Basic math at its lowest level compared to calculus. The test had 17 problems and I got 14 right. The thing is, the teacher represented this as 17/14 And gave me a grade of 13 . Now it really wouldn't be that big of a deal if all math was taught to have fractions displayed this way. It's just flipping them from how we are use to seeing them expressed. I was then trying to figure out why my final grade was 13. One thought came to mind that the first problem on the test was an example problem, so that technically on the page, there are 17 problems shown, but I only answered 13 correctly. I also tend to over analyze things, so I'm also wondering why only 17 problems ? Or if I'm right, why only 16 with one as an example. Has anyone else had any odd math or science dreams ? Insanity  doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

I had one ages ago where I had to do some simple problem  subtraction I think  on the black board. I remembered the problem when I woke up and worked it out  dream answer was totally wrong By the way I think dream teacher was just an idiot and calculated the grade wrong  in my experience it's never a good idea to impute competence to people. In this case yourself QED

RE: Odd math dream
The thing about those math dreams  they just don't add up to much....

RE: Odd math dream
It's the New Math. You might verify what kind of 'shrooms you had on that pizza.
The only mathrelated "nightmare" I've had is one where I'm trying to calculate the arrival times of two trains at a station without enough information. I thrash it out in my head, and eventually wake up a cold sweat, realizing that I am sick, like the flu, for example, where I have a fever. I've had that one several times. Then there's the dream where you dropped a class and the paperwork didn't go through, and you get a midterm grade report with an "F" on it. By which time, of course, it is too late to actually drop the class. I had that dream for years (occasionally) even after I graduated the university.

Not a dream, but a dozen years ago I went to a doctor with heart problems and he did a needle in the leg trick where they thread a camera all the way from the groin area to the heart and do a video of the heat beating. The doctor then assured me even with fingers waving in the air that I have 3 major arteries entering the heart and 4 of those 3 were blocked. I didn't choose him to operate on me!

RE: Odd math dream
My grandma used to work as a math teacher. I'll ask her if she's ever had any weird mathrelated nightmares, lol.
But I'm expecting her to say something like "Yeah, every day with those teenage brats was a nightmare." I've had dreams about meeting famous scientists, but I don't remember ever having any math dreams. If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Did it not have any even numbers?

I took shit for less than two weeks before I became a martinet. https://www.google.com/search?q=Martinet...8&oe=utf8 As soon as the acting out stopped, I eased up. Simple explanation, as I told them, "I'm here to do a job that your parents paid me to do. If you don't pay attention or if your classmate distracts you by gabbing, you are wasting their money, and I won't have it." They were used to pushing the English and Math teachers around. Funnily enough, I learned some of my crowd control techniques from Boy Scout leader training. I wouldn't have tried to use what I used as a noncom in the US Navy, it would have melted their tender little ears.

RE: Odd math dream
When I remember them, which is rare, my dreams are usually weird.
And oddly, I have become adept enough at knowing that I am dreaming that I can actually control my dreams.
