A Truly Gifted Teacher?

Fun:**** (3.2)

Many 'Situation Puzzles' are not designed to be answered by themselves. The idea is for one person to know the answer and other people in a group to try and guess it using yes or no questions. The first person to get the answer is the winner.
Last week, the local Primary school was visited by the Government School Inspector who was there to check that teachers were performing well in their respective classes.

He was very impressed with one particular teacher. The Inspector noticed that each time the class teacher asked a question, every child in the class put up their hands enthusiastically to answer it.

More surprisingly, whilst the teacher chose a different child to answer the questions each time, the answers were always correct.

Why would this be?

Great teaser! :D It was a bit tricky in a good way.

I figured there was a system. I just didn't have the right system figured out!

It's more fun than usual, but basic.

Good one!

I probably would've never figured this out. There is too much of a system in the answer. :)

Posted by NDYApeacock11/30/08
I thought it was because the teacher asked questions that the teacher knew a particualr student would know. :D What would happen if a student thought they knew the answer (maybe because the student was taught incorrectly) and raised their right hand? Nice teaser :D

Not completely flawless, but still clever. If the student thought they had the right answer but didn't that wouldn't work. Also, if none of the students knew the answer, that would be a problem. Furthermore, if only one student knew the answer for a number of consecutive questions, it would look strange for the teacher to always pick the same student when all his/her classmates "knew" the answer. But still clever!

:evil: The Inspector was exploring Teachers in "Their" respective fields, is good advice, Mr. Jazzman. For any teacher to commit to coaching her students in any manner, which indicates answering correctly or incorrectly in front of School Officials is considered "Cheating." It does not matter if there is pen and paper, but the inference is Cheating to make the children Appear to know when in all actuality they do know, but their knowledge is unethical, coached and the Teacher cheats by not acknowledging those students that do not know the answer. :evil: :evil:

:evil: Secondly, This is NOT a system of any kind. Well I guess it is a system for some, but not the intelligent. :evil:

A good teacher can create more learning from an incorrect answer than a correct one!

Posted by lovelost132511/09/09
my 3rd grade teacher did this but we rised our LEFT hands if we knew the answer heh :D :D :D :D :D :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I would have made a twist in the riddle, by allowing the school inspector to ask questions. In that way, it would not appear to the inspector that the questions were rehearsed beforehand by the teacher. Great teaser by the way!! nonetheless, I would not encourage such behaviour in any school as it is not true learning!!

This one is very enthusiastic and clever! I liked it! :wink:

Posted by Angelina842311/27/10
P.S. The teacher is kind of cheating....

Posted by Candi706/21/12
What if they THOUGHT they knew the answer, but they got it WRONG?

Posted by 30angel10011/08/12
I never would have guessed.

Posted by izzy199805/26/13
This was easy for me because it's exactly what my elementary school teacher did to us! :lol:

Posted by mistymia04/25/15
