Storyboard Text

  • The agreeable cat, Floyd, has taken a bathroom break and is now feeling greatly relieved. 
  • I really like math, especially problems where I have to figure out if a function is  even, odd or neither.  
  • Now, before going back to work, he decides to waste some time at the water cooler with Ronald and Dave.
  • You guys got any good math problems for me to solve?
  • Figure out if the function is even, odd, or neither: h(x)=11x-11x^3+9x^7
  • Yes, we do!
  • After wasting time at the water cooler, he went to check his mail, so he could waste more time before going back to work.
  • Hey I figured out that problem! It reflects diagonally so it is even!
  • Well that was a good guess, but that's wrong.  In order for it to be even, it has to reflect across the Y-axis, that was diagonal
  • Now, wasting more time by the water cooler...
  • You should go ask the boss, Ferdinand, to check your problem
  • That's a good idea. Thanks Ronald!
  • Ferdinand has been thinking long and hard about the question posed.
  • I see where I messed up and agree that the function is odd.
  • Well Floyd, I believe that what you have here is an odd function, seeing as it reflects diagonally across the orgin
  • After a long day of "work" Floyd decides to get some water on his way out of the office.
  • I did so much work today I admit, I have no clue what I'll do tomorrow.
