Emily Loustale

Q: What class do you teach?
Loustale: I teach Integrated Math 2.

Q: Do you believe that artificial intelligence will replace teachers in the future?
Loustale: I do not believe it will replace teachers, but I do think it will help to assist teachers in their teaching and students in their learning.- That would be very cool!

Q: Which part in math do you like less than others?
Loustale: I do not like geometry very much; proofs or anything geometry-related is not my favorite.

Q: What is an interesting or funny story related to math that you know?
Loustale: When I was in college, I majored in Math, there was an app called Pi Panda that we all downloaded. So in that app, you were typing the diets of pi as far as you could go, and every time you messed up it would start over. So, we had a competition with me and my classmates to see who could memorize the most digits of pi. And I was the one who memorized the most. And I think it was 105 digits.

Q: What is the most common thing students do that annoys you?
Loustale: Not showing their work on time.
To those students who will have Ms. Lousdale, make a note.

Blitz questions.
Q: Do you approve of pineapples on pizza?
