Having a very small class in high school, students “track” themselves early on. I could be almost certain who the kids in all my math and science classes were going to be since sophomore year. As a class, we’ve had Algebra I and II, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, both AP and standard Chemistry, as well as AP and Standard Physics. Most of us are currently enrolled in AP Physics, and we get the same question almost every day:
“How do we convert meters to kilometers?”
3 years of advanced math and science with countless labs and busy work, no one knows how to do this simple conversion. God save us all.
