  • Tina is Late to School
  • Tina does not have enough money for lunch
  • Tina has had a tiring day without Math
  • On a Tuesday morning in October, Tina woke up to a bright and sunny day. On this day she made one of the worst decisions of her life, which she will later regret. Her decision was to give up all math. But, as her day went on, she discovered more and more math was needed to accomplish her daily tasks. It all started when she was getting ready. Every morning, she would wake up at 6:25 and get ready to go to school, giving her precisely 35 minutes to get dressed and ready. This morning her alarm went off 10 minutes late. Since, Tina decided she was not going to use math she did not determine how much time she had to make up. As she was getting ready, she looked to the clock to see it was 7:30. Tina rushed to get out the door, grabbing $5 on the way out. Since Tina had her license, she was responsible for driving her 10 year old sister to school. To get to her sister's school to her own school, it takes her 25 minutes including daily morning traffic.By the time, Tina arrives at school, it is 7:55. She has 5 minutes to park, get into school, and make it in time for attendance to be taken before she was marked late. Again, Tina decides to disregard the clock and how much time she has to get to class. Tina parks in the furthest parking spot from the school entrance, walking slowly as she is about to enter the building. When she enters she walks to her locker grabbing 3 books. By this time, the bell rings making Tina late to homeroom. Now, Tina had to check in for school in a room on the opposite side of the building.
  • By the time she is marked in for attendance,she leaves and makes her way to her homeroom hoping she could have a better day. Her fist three classes were: English, History, and Writing. She didn't have much trouble getting through the day until 4th period. Her 4th period class was Chemistry. In this class Tina needed to determine the %error of a problem on a quiz. Since, she had ban herself from using math and forgotten her basic math skills, she struggled to determine the final answer, irritating Tina. Her only hope was for the bell to ring and be able to go to lunch. Finally, the bell rang and Tina rushed to the cafeteria. She stood in line trying to figure out what she wanted for lunch. As it was time for her to pay for her lunch she handed the $5 bill to the cashier. The cashier looked up at her and told her that the $5 would not cover the fee for her lunch and she had to put back her sandwich and drink leaving her with only fries to eat. After, all of that confusion while buying her lunch, not only did she just get fries, but the bell rang.
  • Tina had two more classes until dismissal. After they were over she left and picked up her sister. When she arrived back home, she immediately set her alarm clock and put $20 in her backpack. She than did all her homework and studied for her math quiz the next day. At the end of the day, Tina realizes that math is an important part of life. She realizes she can not live without it because it is needed to complete daily tasks.
