Quite Long Puzzle
As the school year was progressing, a teacher was distressed that more
and more of her students were beginning to tease and make fun of one
another. She decided to do something about it. When they returned to the
classroom after Spring Break, they saw a mirror on the wall with a sign
next to it.
When one of the students came to her crying about the names she had been called at recess, she sent the girl to the mirror with these directions: Read that sign quietly to yourself. Repeat it over and over, gradually running the sounds together. Each time, look at yourself in the mirror. Soon you will be smiling.
Sure enough, when the student followed these directions, she came away smiling.
Each time a student would come to the teacher feeling low, she would give them the same directions. Sometimes they would have difficulty, so she would go over to read the sign with them. Eventually, each one would come away smiling.
This is what the sign said: I.Y.Q.Y.Q.R.
Why did this little exercise help her students feel better about themselves
When the students read the letters out loud, running them together, and looking in the mirror, they realized that they were telling themselves, 'I like you like you are!' It may not be perfect grammar, but the teacher reached her goal of building self-esteem in her students who had a low opinion of themselves because of teasing
Friday 13th Unlucky Puzzle
Many people would think Friday the 13th will be an unlucky day. Is it
possible that there is no Friday on 13th through the whole year? How
many Fridays at 13th can we have in a year at most? Can you calculate it
We can calculate out how many days there will be for the 13th on each month if we count from the beginning of the year (January 1). Then we divide total days by 7 to get the remainders. We also need to consider the leap year. Through the whole year we had all kinds of remainders, from 0 to 6. The minimum of occurence for all the unique remainders was 1. It means that we have at least one Friday on 13th. In a regular year, the best chance you can get 3 Fridays on 13th, which are in February, March and December because the remainders of these 3 months are 2. In a leap year, the best chance you also can get 3 Fridays on 13th, which are in January, April and July because the remainders of these 3 months are 6.
