# My Favorite One-Liners: Part 111

I tried a new wise-crack in class recently, and it was a rousing success. My math majors had trouble recalling basic facts about tests for convergent and divergent series, and so I projected onto the front screen the Official Repository of all Knowledge (www.google.com) and searched for “divergent series” to “help” them recall their prior knowledge.

Worked like a charm.

This was hands-down my favorite variant of the “distracted boyfriend” meme that went around the internet last year.

# Cheat Sheet

The news clip below shows why, when I allow my students to use a 3×5 card on an exam, I specify — “that’s in inches. It must be handwritten. And no magnifying glasses.”
