Real World Math
As a middle child out of 7, my daughter’s math word problems always manage to strike me as hilarious.
- You have 4 chocolate bars that you have to share with your two sisters. What equation shows how this would work out?
- You have 7 donuts you must share with your four brothers. What equation shows how this would work out?
“Mommy, what’s so funny?”
“Well…do they want to know the *actual* answer to either of those questions or just what they wished it would work out like in a mathematical la-la land?”
How would that work out in YOUR family? 🙂
