How Catholics Teach Math

Little Zachary, a Jewish kid, was not doing very well in math. His parents had tried everything: tutors, mentors, flash cards, special learning centers -- in short, everything they could think of to help him learn math. Finally, in a last ditch effort, they took Zachary down and enrolled him in the local Catholic school. After the first day, little Zachary came home with a very serious look on his face. He didn't even kiss his mother hello.

Instead, he went straight to his room and started studying. His mother was amazed. This went on for some time, day after day while the mother tried to understand what made all the difference.

Finally, little Zachary brought home his report card. He quietly laid it on the table, went up to his room, and hit the books. With great trepidation, his mom looked at it, and to her great surprise, little Zachary got an "A" in math. She could no longer hold her curiosity. She went to his room and said, "Son, what was it? Was it the nuns?"

Little Zachary looked at her and shook his head, no. "Well, then," she replied, "was it the books, the discipline, the structure, the uniforms? WHAT was it?''

Little Zachary looked at her and said, ''Well, on the first day of school, when I saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I knew they weren't messing around.''
