A math teacher welcomed a new French exchange student

A math teacher welcomed a new French exchange student into her class and then started teaching a fraction lesson.

The French exchange student raised his hand and said, “Excuse me, ma’am, but I don’t know how to say fractions. How do you say those?”

“Easy,” says the teacher, “just say the top number, and then the bottom number is read as an ordinal number. For example, 2/3 is “two-thirds”, 3/4 is ‘three-fourths’, and 2/5 is ‘two-fifths.”

“Thanks, I understand, “said the exchange student.

“Good,” the teacher said, then asked the student, “how do you say 4/8?”

“Should I reduce?” asked the boy.

“That would be best,” said the teacher.

“One-second,” said the boy.

“Take as long as you need,” said the teacher.

The teacher fell asleep in class and a little naughty Johnny approached him,

Little Johnny: Teacher, are you sleeping in class?

Teacher: “No, I am not sleeping in class.”

Little Johnny: What did you do, sir?

Teacher: “I was talking to God.”

The next day, the Johnny Boy fell asleep in class and the same teacher walks up to him…

Teacher: “Young man, are you sleeping in my classroom.”

Little Johnny: No, not me, sir, I am not sleeping.

Angry teacher: “What were you doing?”

Little Johnny: “I was talking to God.”

Angry teacher: “What did he say??”

Little Johnny: “God said he never spoke to you yesterday …”
