The Law Of BrainPower

The Law of brainpower states that in a classroom, the amount of concentration that can be used on the matter at hand is:
b)directly proportional to its area,
c)inversely proportional to its strength, and
d)never big enough for the whole class

this can be shown through the equation:
n=number of students,
k= is the constant of proportionality, which can be defined as the value of discipline of the teacher
k rises as the teacher becomes more strict about discipline, and has a value of 0 when there is no teacher present.
Therefore, there is a set amount of concentration, or brain power, that can be used in a class at any one time. The law of brain power states that after the concentration limit is reached in any class, the rest of the students are distracted. If the actual concentration is greater than the theoretical limit, the one (or more) distracted students will disturb the rest of the class until the concentration is less than the limit.
To use an analogy, only a certain amount of individual brains can be switched on at any point in time. If an extra brain is switched on, another brain will switch off to compensate.

Wrong. There is another equation

W= k^2 + (1/n^2)

Where W is the weight of the teacher. K is your concentration index (CI) and n is the number of times the teacher has given the same lecture.

However, one cant be sure these days with the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle and all.

but your equation only applies in university.
before university, terminology such as 'lecture'cannot be used, and the weight of the teacher is negligible

if the teacher is a real treat to the eye, then concentration is infinite, no brain will ever switch off and since there occurs no switching "off", there is no switching "on",and thus the law is independent of any of the factors mentioned...

The answer is always... POTATO!

and we artists focus on method and not formula and the method of madness diminishes teacher concentration and thereby improves distraction level and contributes to brainpower and eternal bliss..

this method is also substantiated by chaos theory... where more teacher madness is equal to student distraction which in turn is equal to lots of chaos and unruliness
