LOL. Thanks for the example, Bill. I may use it, (minus the bullshit,) for my 8th grade math class that has a particularly bad attitude about anything that stretches their brains.

Who is particularly frustrated with bright kids who refuse to work, and are reaping the respective grades that reflect their negative attitudes.

I taught remedial college math for a few years. Two things I tried to do to keep the students interested was to find logic and math puzzles for students to work on and to get the brighter students to explain things to those who were further behind. I don't know how much flexibility you have in terms of how your class is structured, but something like this might work.

Hope this helps,
