## [0881] Killing Fields

└ posted on Thursday, 27 April 2017, by Novil

The *Sandra and Woo* adventure game developed by Feline Fuelled Games is finished and will be released in exactly one week, on Friday, 5 May 2017! Find out more in the following **blog post**!

**Question 5:** Come here, Sandra! Take my hand!

**Question 5:** You only need compass and ruler to solve me!
**Sandra:** … Could it be? A ray of light in this sea of darkness!?

**Question 5:** … And inverse trigonometric functions!! HA HA HA!
**Sandra:** AAAAAH!

Hah! Math is indeed like a treacherous battlefield, but oh dear summer child, you have no idea.

Also, I’ve never been this early.

And now Sandra’s having an Assassination Classroom themed nightmare.

Plot twist: This is reality.

My mum, a math teacher, has been this ruthless to students. Giving a test this hard then telling them it was an April fools joke and worth nothing. This feels like a college level second year calc class test.

This is scarier than any episode of Berserk.

This somehow reminds me of the test in Assassination Classroom

Just me?

Secant: Wait, Sandra – don’t die yet! Guess my name! Guess my name!

Cosecant & Cotangent: Guess our derivations!

Sec, Cosec and Cot: Ahahahahahahahahahah!!!!

Larisa: (in distance) Hey guys, what happens if I divide by zero?

Mrs. Gallagher: (in distance) Don’t you dare, Larisa… no! Aieeeeeeeeee!

All Questions, Constants and Functions: *are sucked down into the ground*

Blasted landscape: *dissolves* *fades out*

Mrs. Gallagher’s empty clothes: *collapse and settle quietly in her chair*

Most of class: *blink* *look round incredulously at each other*

Larisa: Oh, oops! *puts hand over mouth*

>:=)>

I’ve had nightmares like this. And not just math, either. Let’s just say my favorite school subject was lunch.

Are you playing with the double meaning of Killing field?

Huh, I’ve heard of Killing vectors, I would assume Killing fields is also a thing.

Greenwood Goatwrote:That was awesome. As someone who has two students in college Calculus right now it made me very happy.

qwyxiviwrote:You’re on the right track…

Oh, no, poor Cloud.

Death by square root.

OK, forget disassembling her bike, her car is getting disassembled, and all of her passwords and usernames on the school network are getting changed, and all her selfies on her phone are being emailed to the school board and the local news station.

I’m a math major and I scoff at these atrocities. But seriously what’s going on with the closet of 7 that Problem 4 is holding?

Greenwood Goatwrote:I want this to happen so badly right now. I could never deal with trigonometry without help back in grade school. Geometry test: A+ Trigonometry test: C-

Wow. The reboot of Berserk is a lot different than how I imagined it would be.

I wonder if the writer has seen Assassination Classroom? If not, he may enjoy it.

Ah, so the math teacher saying “Good luck, puny mortals!” on the previous page meant it literally.

Why do I get the feeling that Sandra passed out during the test, is having a nightmare, and will wake up to a remarkably easy test with one minute to finish all the problems?

If I where there I would be happy, I love maths! One of my fav subjects, second only to physics though lunch would be first or second if I included it

To me, that actually looks more like an esset than a beta. Novil would know better than I would though.

It looks like the situation is getting tensor and tensor.

As with all semingly arcane subjects, behind the priestly vestments around this subject, behind the curtain, as it were, the profesor has no clothes and the subject matter is elegantly simple, yea, unto topology (the study of continuity).

@ Brother Parvus:Meanwhile, this installment came close to inducing me to piddle me trews; i still have a wee risibility-induced cramp in me abs.

I always knew trig was a sneaky bastard.

Another “math is so evil” comic in this world.

*Sigh!* 🙁

Glad to see there are other Assassination Classroom fans here. Although I doubt this math teacher is anywhere near Korosensei’s level. Or even Asano’s.

I’ve survived all of my Math courses for MEchanical engineering… but now I have to take Statistics.

If I survive the final on wednesday, I’ll be free. Free of math classes. AHAHAHAHA

But yeah, inverse trig is nothing much. Now, Trig identities with integration… Hello, more than half a page of equations for a single part problem!

Well, this has taken a rather odd tangent. But all in all, it does look like a good sine of things to come. Cos I like math jokes.

Greenwood Goatwrote:Actually we have a symbol for infinity in analytical maths….

ß is used in math?

@ Hobbes:Lol, good job. 🙂

Paris Kiranwrote:But the answer to dividing by zero is

notinfinity. It is undefined or else 0÷0 wouldn’t work.I remember Siri had a really badass answer if you asked about 0÷0. It involved Cookie Monster and a jab about having no friends.

Nachumwrote:Ohh yes. Really hard math that I don’t touch.

@ Ezra Dudden:That must be a non-strict inequality sign. Either less-than-or-equal or greater-than-or-equal, depending on which side you look from.

Gee… its like Fifth Period all over again.

@ Nachum:That’s a β, not a ß…

this page was provided to you by Assassination Classroom XD

Bwahahahaha. “Killing Fields” I wonder how many people even caught that. I think I would’ve totally missed that if I wasn’t planning to go with a “splitting fields” joke, then went, “Wait a minute…” Differential geometry. Good times.

@ Grayson Judd:College? No way. Fall semester HS 10th grade.

College was vector fields, differential equations, tensors and the like.

TvTropesgotmehookedwrote:Well – in analytical calculus you can just use a limite.

then its just order of the 0 and order of the infinity in the fraction you are comparing. If you for instance have any infinite polynome.

e to x power infinity would for example trump any polynomial infinity.

Sorry – this is no way out.

(truth is if situation is this deperate – the only solution is to multiply all sides of equasion by zero.)

thats perfectly valid aproach… however it tends be a bit… well not producing any viable results.

@ Paeris Kiran:I remember when our calculus teacher did a funny joke when he put in “0/infinity” limite for us to solve. using Lhospital rule… the thing is – 0/infinity is 0 immediately… you do not need the rule at all.

it was either done in 2 seconds, or you got it wrong because derivations ruined the bottom infinity while ruining the top zero.

Nachumwrote:ß ? It looks like β to me, or maybe 阝, but definitely not ß.

Well, anyway, Sandra is in trouble. Only some vagrant actor from Θ±ell NF-Hodge theater can save her.

@ Nachum:It’s just the Greek letter beta… Often used with alpha and theta representing angles

All-Purpose Guruwrote:should of used Omnislash

I knew it! You can not trust trigonometric functions. They are plain evil and will allways screw with you.

It’s a shame cloud’s got killed by a square root, how much materia would he need to cast “summon Yuna”?

of course Mrs. Gallagher might have something to say about a class of 8th graders getting shown up by a 2nd grader

Another one bite za dusto, due to the Problemonsters!

It’s Assassination Classroom all over again!

Salisriawrote:Geez, I hope Sandra and Cloud affine.

TvTropesgotmehookedwrote:Dividing any nonzero number by zero

isinfinity (of the appropriate sign). Zero over zero is another matter though. The technical term is indeterminate. Simply put, 0 divided by 0 can be anything, depending on how you obtain the zeros in the first place.
