Boy are we in trouble!
Thursday, March 5, 2009
Yesterday, when Levi returned to school, he found out that his Math teacher had misunderstood and he was not given all of his work. He called me over to the table for help. They have been doing Geometry and graphing stuff. I mean... how hard can it be, right? So he shows me the problem and it says, if the figure ADG is rotated 145 degrees counter-clockwise, what are the new coordinates? I take a moment. The boy is staring at me intently. Waiting for some type of answer. I had nothing. What in the crap is this talking about? Finally he broke the silence with, "MOM I'm waiting." I replied, "As I see it we've got two options." "Yes?" he asks. "I can either drive you over to Mrs. Eudy's house so she can teach us both how to do this, or you can use one of your 34 homework passes." I said calmly. "You don't have a clue do you Mom", he says. "Nope, I fully realize my math capabilities and this is not one of them", I said proudly. "I choose the pass," he replied. "Good choice", I said.
