A Math Teacher in Houston Had His Class Guess Who the Texans Will Select for Extra Credit
Jared Rothenberg, a high school math teacher from Houston, Texas, decided to add a little quirk to this week's test.
With the NFL Draft on the horizon and his hometown Texans possessing the first pick, Rothenberg offered his Algebra II students 10 extra credit points if they correctly guess who the Texans will draft first.
As a testament to the popularity of the NFL, the majority of his students responded, and all of them had pretty reasonable answers. For what it's worth, Rothenberg has indicated that he will give half credit to students who put two answers down, assuming one of them is correct. Jadeveon Clowney is currently the heavy favorite to be selected first overall.
I'm a big fan of the kid who changes his mind twice before landing on Clowney -- not even because it's clear that he put a lot of thought into the question, but more so because he decided to write a math test in ink. A close second is the student who's clearly been following draft buzz closely, because he predicts that the Texans will trade the first pick and eventually land Central Florida quarterback Blake Bortles. If that ends up coming to fruition, this kid should probably get 1000 points extra credit... and maybe a job here.
