Call To my Mom (aka the math whiz)

me- Hey..... Wyatt did terrible on a math test.
her- What happened? I thought he was good in math?
me- He is. He just got everything mixed up.
her- What was it on?
me- LCM's, GCF's, he did it all backwards.
her- Understandable.
me- Then throw in some prime and composite numbers... also backwards. And he added to get the square roots instead of multiplying. It was a nightmare.
her- Yep.
me- Do you think it would be wrong of me to write a note to his math teacher? I mean, he didn't get this stuff at all!
her- I think she probably got that from his grade.

hilarious...and so true. Technically that's what tests are for though, so help the teacher see if the students got it! Now time for a little review :)

That was kinda funny! Gotta love your mama!

Sometimes it takes my son several times of doing math to really "get it".

Shannon said...

Yep, I ended up writing the note to see if he could do some extra credit work but she assured me he still has an A in math.

Carolina Mama said...

Bless his heart! That is so hard. Great he still has an A! Your mom is funny.

I probably couldn't have handled that in high school. You're Mom seems to have a grip.
