I’m Boooored, Sir!!!!!April 20, 2009
Monkeys get bored, school kids get bored and even those ‘movers and shakers’ of the business world get bored.
THE WEEK (10 April) published an article quoting research from audio visual company
Scene Changes showing that the average time it takes the audience at a business conference
to switch off is 11 minutes. Keep in mind that the audience at a business conference is, at least,
being paid to be bored witless.
But here is the question for mathspigs?
How do you measure BOREDOM? Come up with a school based scale mathspigs. This might be 0 – 10, perhaps. Decide at what point boredom begins: 5, perhaps. Now that you are armed you might even do a survey.
eg. Mathspig Bored-Witless Scale for Seriously Bored Students
1. Look out window
3. Smash face into table top
4. Drop into a coma
5. On life support
