People really gave Barbie a hard time when she said, "Math is hard!" All the poor girl was trying to do was admit that she had a few faults. The thing is, she was right!
Recently, I subbed for a math teacher at a middle school. He left me a work sheet to go over with the students and asked me to put some examples on the board. Um....uh....did I mention that I am an elementary teacher? I looked at all of the letters, numbers and symbols on that sheet and I began to sweat! Thankfully, when I went to turn on the camera and projector, he had left a sheet with the examples.
Some students had a few questions, and I directed them to try and figure it out with another student who was having the same problem. Thankfully that worked!
Plus, it's Junior High, so.....
Quote from a seventh grade boy, "Hey substitute lady! Do you think my tractor's sexy?"
Ugh! It was quite a day.
I brought a copy of the math worksheet home with me to see if I could do it, and check the answers on line. I've been avoiding my homework for quite some time now!
