My teacher (Ms. Milly Meter) used to take the students down by an inch (or so).......but that's before she had a radical conversion......then....it became only 2.54 cm.

She also used to hit the class with a bow, too.....it often didn't resin-ate with us, though......

Eventually, she relented, and would only punish us for Major infractions of the rules....A Minor one was ignored......unless it was a C# Minor......that one got her singing a different tune........

To divide fractions, invert and multiply.

ie. 1/4 ÷ 2/1 = 1/4 x 1/2  = 1/8

#### it is very easy to me because 1/4 divided by 2 equals 0.125. I learned that when I was 2 years old

That is not nice Kalecia!  If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all!

WOW I could play Sibelius's Violin Concerto when I was 4.  I must have been a slow learner!

--That's very impressive!

I couldn't play it untill I was 6 --at least not without mistakes.

The teacher would whack me with the fiddlestick when I made a mistake. She was mean!!

Her name was Melody, and she had perfect pitch. She knew how to use the bow too!

She wasn't a very good teacher if she would treat your bow with such disrespect.

My teacher had a ruler that she used!

She had a special bow for that purpose. I was very happy she didn’t have a special violin.

My math teacher used a ruler, too.

I read on here that headmistresses know how to use rulers for more than measuring.

Is that true?

It’s might be an accurate way to take a student down an inch.
