Poor Baby Duck was struggling with his maths homework this morning, so I had to lend a hand. I’m no maths whiz, but I can still nail fourth grade maths. Go, me. I get frustrated, though, when he says, like this morning, that they haven’t actually covered the concepts at school that they’re expected to do for homework.
It reminded us both of that great joke:
Maths question in class: What’s one plus one?
Maths question in the test: What’s one plus eight?
Maths homework question: If Johnny has two apples and he eats one, calculate the mass of the sun.
