### Ten Commandments of Mathematics for Students

Through the site which didn't work for me yesterday, I have found some more amusing things which I'd like to share! Here are the ten commandments for maths students:

**Thou shalt read Thy problem.****Whatsoever Thou doest to one side of ye equation, Do ye also to the other.****Thou must use Thy "Common Sense", else Thou wilt have flagpoles 9,000 feet in height, yea ... even fathers younger than sons.****Thou shalt ignore the teachings of false prophets to do work in Thy head.****When Thou knowest not, Thou shalt look it up, and if Thy search still elude Thee, Then Thou shalt ask the all-knowing teacher.****Thou shalt master each step before putting Thy heavy foot down on the next.****Thy correct answer does not prove that Thou hast worked Thy problem correctly. This argument convincest none, least of all, Thy teacher.****Thou shalt first see that Thou hast copied Thy problem correctly before bearing false witness that the answer book lieth.****Thou shalt look back even unto Thy youth and remember Thy arithmetic.****Thou shalt learn, speak, write, and listen correctly in the language of mathematics, and verily A's and B's shall follow Thee even unto graduation.**
