Math Teacher Grades Kids' Homework With Memes in Viral Video

An Ohio math teacher has shared his method for making grading homework more interesting, and it involves the use of memes.

Posting to TikTok, the teacher, who goes by the account name JJgrubb, shared footage of him marking some mathematics homework, and attaching sticker versions of famous memes to the tests corresponding to which grade the student got.

Text overlaying the footage reads: "Best purchase a teacher could make."

One 15 out of 30 test was given a sticker which showed a stock image of a man surrounded by question marks.

While a 14 out of 30 score warranted an sticker of an elderly woman drinking tea, alongside the caption: "Brace yourself more studying is needed."

And an example of a student that scored well, received 19 out of 30, was given a sticker depicting actor Ben Stiller giving a thumbs up, and the words: "Good job."

Jjgrubb captioned the amusing video, which can be viewed here, writing: "A meme sticker for every grade #fyp #foryoupage #teachersoftiktok #meme."

Since posting the footage on November 30, 2020, the teacher's hack has been seen more than 20 million times.

It has also garnered 3.6 million likes, and thousands of people have shared their thoughts on his idea in the comments section.

One TikTok user, Rachael Gordon, wrote: "Wouldn't even be mad for getting those stickers on tests I have failed."

Another person, Destiny, added: "Getting those stickers would literally motivate me to do better lmao."

An account by the name of user4492536227170 revealed: "As a parent I would be laughing so hard I would forget to pay attention to the grade."

Renaimed explained: "My math teacher would see that as inappropriate."

Vflo asked: "OK where did you purchase? These are getting gifted to my kids teacher LOL."

CJ typed: "My son might fail on purpose for the funnier stickers."

Kylie commented: "I'd just be happy to get a sticker i don't care about the grade ahahah."

To this, Jjgrubb then explained: "I don't use the negative ones unless I still put them on a 100%... so I promise there is no encouragement for that."

This teacher is clearly a breath of fresh air for his students. Another educator that was deemed to have gone above and beyond recently received a very special thank you in the form of a zoom surprise.

A class at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, decided to thank their professor for his efforts by holding up messages of thanks on their video call, and footage of the event went viral online.

Newsweek have contacted Jjgrubb for comment.
