On Monday, I was telling Geoff about how well Matthew was doing in understanding his Grade 3 Math...particularly the concepts of multiplication and division and when to apply them.
Geoff took it upon himself to test the truth of this and gave Matthew the following simple problem:
"Matthew, if I gave six cookies to you for the three of you [kids], how many would you each get?"
Matthew: "Sheesh Dad, that's easy. I get six; they get none."
I'm not sure it's Math we need to be working on.
