pythagoras

I had an elective class to take as a Junior in high school. I was on the science/engineering “track” (algebra-geometry, etc) and the counselor told me I was “too smart” to take the MOCE or Mathematics of Consumer Economics class. I got her permission by telling her that I could work quadratic equations but those wouldn’t help me balance a checking account.
