DELETED SCENE: Harry Potter and the Logical Statement — GEO (statements, compound statements, and truth tables)

I'm absolutely slammed for time, but I wanted to share this script I wrote for my Geo students, which was a surprise hit.

I'm taking a page this year from the patented Sam Shah "Here kids, teach yourselves this stuff" pedagogical method, which really deserves a lot more credit than it gets.

I had students act out this "script" which is, of course, from a confidential deleted scene from the first Harry Potter movie. The studio insisted I return all copies after the class. Students delighted in finding the many "problems" with the script and we laughed about all the many reasons why this scene was obviously deleted.

When you release students to launch the task, you want to slam a ruler on the table and yell, "ACTION!"

Students had a lot of fun and got their intro to symbolic logic. Mission accomplished.


The file is available on the Math Teacher Wiki:
