Homework

Tonight Marie asked me to look over her math homework. It featured this:

Question: "Write a word subtraction problem using the numbers 18 and 10."

Under it Marie had written: "Frank had 18 words and gave 10 of them to Craig. Frank had 8 words left."

My Dad asks everyone to subtract 7 from 100 again and again and again. I think it would be easier if he asked them how many marbles they would have left if he gave them 18 and then took 10 away.

I have no words...

Very precise, following those directions to the letter--or word, as it may be in this case! LOL.

The Mother said...

Exactly. But let's hope Frank's remaining words will get him through HIS homework. Otherwise, he'll have to borrow a few words from Marie, and that would mess up the numbers.

Give the girl a bonus mark for attention to detail!

That's how my son is teaching his brother to play Scrabble. 300 points for using all his letters, landing on a triple letter (for X) and using a triple word score. He usually wins. But, his brother is catching up.
