The real math lesson here is: Don’t be so creative while teaching a math lesson. Better that it be boring.

The Secret Service  investigated a Corner High School math teacher in Jefferson County, Ala. after he demonstrated parallel lines and angles and explained where an assassin should stand to shoot President Obama, the Birmingham News reported.

Roy Sexton, a Secret Service special agent, said his agency spoke to the teacher and “We did not find a credible threat’, according to Birmingham News.  “As far as the Secret Service is concerned, we looked into it, we talked to the gentleman and we have closed our investigation.”

One student, Joseph Brown, said, according to the paper: “He was talking about angles and said, ‘If you’re in this building, you would need to take this angle to shoot the president’.”

The teacher’s name was not released and he remained on the job, though the school superintendent said he planned to have a good talking  with the teacher, the paper reported.
