Kids Say the Darndest Things

I was teaching Law of Sines in Core Geometry on Friday and was pointing out to the students the importance of leaving sinA in that form as long as possible to avoid rounding errors. I very often use the term "messy" to describe long irrational decimals, so I pointed out to the students that the by just putting everything into their calculator right away that they would end up with something "big, hard and messy"... suddenly I heard from the back of the room a small voice say "that's what she said"
