NO PARKING!!  In a panic, you drive around and drive around…  Finally, a

parking spot!  You do one of those run-walk things across campus and get to

your class LATE.  The room is quiet and everyone is already working on their

tests.  The teacher is clearly annoyed.  Your eyes quickly dart around the

room to find an empty seat.  Of course, you’ve forgotten your calculator and a

pencil.  Your heart is pounding, the adrenaline is pumping and now you

expect to be able to think about math?

          You’ve got a math test at 9am…  You wake up at 7:15 and take 15

minutes to stretch and get semi-alert… Get out of bed at 7:30…  Hop in the

fuel to start your day…
