The Benefit of the Doubt

After my 4th hour class yesterday I realized that I was missing one of my calculators.  Over the course of several years I’m proud to say that my set of calculators is relatively intact.  I like to tell myself that my students like me well enough NOT to steal from me.  So today when I got to my 4th hour class, I made an announcement at the beginning of class.

Hey you guys…  I noticed yesterday that one of my calculators was missing after this class.  I know it’s easy to accidentally put it in your bag and take it with you.  So if that’s you, just put it back in the box when you leave class today.

End of class?  The set is intact.
