What’s in a name?


~ signed the boy up for SAT’s (the college board exams.) Boy has 2 different proper ID’s due to his “nickname” (pun intended). His social security and birth certificates both identify him as NICHOLAS.His school ID says NICK. All are considered acceptable forms of government identification for travel, id, etc. SAT people will not admit NICK with conflicting ID’s. Have spent the better part of one week trying to prove said child is, in fact, same child.

*Moral of story- Do not give your Nick a Nick-name.

While I sort this mess out, enjoy this “practice SAT question ” just for fun and be glad that YOUR name isn’t NICK ( or Nicholas, for that matter!)

If the graph of the function function f in the x times y-plane contains the points (0 comma negative 9)(1 comma negative 4), and (3 comma 0), which of the following CANNOT be true?

D.  click to choose answer D   The graph of function f is a line.
E.  click to choose answer E   The graph of function f is a parabola.

~ If I have had this much joy just in scheduling this test, I can’t even imagine the joy of taking this test.

Fortunately, my own SAT’s are but a distant memory for me.  Image
