Parents are shocked about the math homework their kids brought home from school in London, Ontario. Their math teacher Donald Mountain had asked them to work out how they would have to kick a hanging politician to make him swing at 60 degrees.
The math teacher said that he often uses politicians for his homework and exam questions to make things a bit more exciting for students. So far he had never had any complaints.
The question that caused all the trouble referred to Ontario premier Mike Harris. He was described as "hanging from a rope."
