Connor's current homeschooling topic in math is subtraction with borrowing and addition with carrying. Today I overheard two choice quotes:
Mom: What's one hundred minus sixty.
Connor: [Thinks for a bit, mumbling out the work he's doing in his head.]Forty. It's amazing how much damage sixty can do to one hundred.
Some time later:
Connor: Hmmm...three minus nothing, so it's uncontested.Posted by Jeff at February 27, 2003 04:14 AM | Link Cosmos
