me- Hey, Levi needed you the other day. He was stumped on his math homework.
Mom- Really? He can usually figure it out.
me- He said he has never had this stuff about "rate".
Mom- Oh you know, tell him rate equals distance times time.
Me- Yeah, it wasn't a distance problem. It was a graph about some radio stations, and listeners and another number.
Mom- Tell him rate is the same as ratio and (at this point she lost me) ....number of (wow, is she still talking?).......rate and ratio divided ( does she think I am going to remember this?)....and then he can just solve for "X" (seriously, what is she saying) and that is how you do rate.
me- Yeah...... I just told him he didn't have to do that page.
Mom- Okay, have fun next week!
(the math gene didn't come from me, and I am fine with that, lol)
