when my 3rd grade teacher taught us about geometry she gave us little tips for remembering which one was which.


Obtuse and open


acute is "a cute" and little angle



when i associated anything with cute those days it was bunnies.

i do not know why.


well when u make an angle you know you have to make a square(for a right angle) or a curved line(for acut and obtuse angles), i always tried to find the little bunnies and neon open signs inside of the angles on tests.

When I was younger, I used to believe that you couldn't count backwards unless you said "Zero, Blast Off!" at the end.

3, 2, 1, 0, Blast Off!

I used to think that "a couple" meant any small amount, such as 3 or 5. My mom once corrected me and said that "a couple" always meant 2, and that if I meant some other small number that I should say "a few" instead.

I told her that she must have it backwards, and that "a few" must mean 2, because "few" and "two" rhyme.

After I heard the joke "Why was 6 mad at 7? Beause 7 8 9 (seven ate nine)" I thought 7 was the meanest number ever and 9 became my favorite number because I felt bad for it.

I can remember when I was little, I figured out how to count up to very large numbers for the first time. I was in the yard, and I counted outloud... I counted to fif-dee, then six-dee, then seven-dee, then eight-dee and finally nine-de,e and I kept going... nine-dee seven, nine-dee eight, nine-dee nine and finally --- TEN-dee! Ten-dee one, ten-dee two... until I got to ELEVEN-dee, then TWELVE-dee.

I was so proud, that after I got it down I did it in front of my mother, who then kindly corrected me, and explained that after nine-dee nine came one hundred.

I don't know how old I was, but the memory is as clear as a bell.

I always thought that the numbr 100 was the biggest number and that it was the last one. So, when I knew all my numbers up to 100, and then was informed that I was sadly mistaken, I thought I will never memorize all those numbers. It would take years.

i guess im not the only one who made personalities for numbers, here i thought i had a problem or something. I always thought 9 was mean, because when you add 5 and 9 you get 14 instead of 15....yeah...and i always thought that the adding was a way of numbers helping other numbers, and subtracting was like numbers fighting( 6 says to nine "i dont like you, were not 15 anymore!!") i was so messed when multiplying and dividing came along.

When I was 4 years old my brother told me that when you count backwards, you don't count the number 4. I think I believed him.

I used to believe that if you counted up to any number above thirty or forty, it could be 100 at any given time. Like: "38... 39... 40... 41... ONE HUNDRED HERE I COME!!!"

I thought to count to one thousand you did 1-100, then 100-199, then came 1,000.

When I was about 4 I decided that if you were born in a bigger year, that meant you were older. So if I was born in 1965, that meant I was older than someone born in 1964. Because 65 is bigger than 64. Just like being 4 years old was bigger than being 3 years old.

When I was learning to count, I always left out 7. Then, when I finally got used to it being between 6 & 8, I started to leave out 17... I always believed that it couldn't be a proper number because it always had one more syllable than those around it.

when i was little i used to believe that the number six was the same as nine, cuz if you turned 6 upsidedown you would get 9, and vice versa. so whenever i would count to ten i would either go 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8.... etc
or 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 !
