THE MATH TEACHER WAS VERY METHODICAL AND TAUGHT MATH – – –
STNURYHMEBBE = BY THE NUMBERS
Happy Tuesday, everyone! All of the clue words were instantly visible upon first glance making it the first time in over a week that I was able to see them all without the slightest hesitation. FURRY is a new clue word making its debut into gameplay this morning while the other three were recycled favorites. HAMPER would be my guess as to the most difficult anagram of the day. It was also the oldest clue word of the group having last been used on 6/2/14.
Today’s cartoon brings us back to school where we see three students getting a math lesson. At the front of the room is a math teacher and she is explaining how to solve a very basic algebraic equation. She’s utilizing a projector to transfer the image onto a screen where she begins to explain how to solve this jumble of numbers with a single variable. All of the students are paying close attention and don’t seem intimidated by this new concept.
The were some interesting details in today’s panel that caught my attention. The first thing that I noticed was that the student on the far right is seated in a chair rather than at a desk. She is seated facing the young boy so perhaps she’s sharing his desktop? The other young girl on the far left has her pencil in hand, but there’s no paper on her desk. Maybe she already knows how to solve the equation and is just pretending to pay attention? My favorite detail was the small lines coming out of the front of the projector. They were very faint but it did add a sense of realism to the piece.
The letter layout for the final solution was 12-letters in length. The NU together in the layout brought NUMBERS to mind as the visual clue was a math lesson. By crossing out the letters, BY and THE were both instantly visible for the finish. This sure was a fun puzzle and I hope you were able to figure out the equation on the board! Have a terrific Tuesday, and I’ll see you tomorrow.
