I’m working on an ebook, despite the fact that after several grueling seconds of Googling, I’ve been unable to ascertain whether I should have spelled that “ebook,” “e-book,” or “eBook.” Each choice looks its own flavor of wrong.
But I digress. Sadly, this is the kind of book that actually requires research. Very sadly, some of the research hasn’t been done by anyone else so far as I can tell.
So I need to ask a couple of questions — and not just of you, but of as many of your adult nearest and dearest as you can harass on my behalf. Because if I just post the questions here and wait for answers from Dear Readers, that’s not a terribly wide net. Plus it’s what you’d call a self-selecting response. Whereas if I make you quiz everyone you know, I’ll be closer to what might be considered a representative cross-section. Plus I’ll have a lot more answers. Which may or may not be statistically significant, but will make me feel better.
So please ask around. If you want to win my heart forever, you’ll post about this on your Facebook page, blog, loops, and wherever else cool and groovy types hang out.
Please send me via email — deborah @ 2ds dot org — as many answers as you can gather to the following questions.
1. In high school, what was the highest math class you took? (Algebra, geometry, trig…?)
2. Did you take chemistry in high school?
Please note that both questions are referring to pre-university studies. I just want to know what you (and, if possible, everyone you’ve ever met) did in high school. At least so far as math and chemistry are concerned. And, okay, any other really entertaining stories you wish to share. And by entertaining, I mean really naughty and/or the kind of thing I can threaten to tell your kids about.
But I digress.
Many thanks, and I hope to hear from you soon.
