    When the math is too easy

    This is a bragging post. Straight up.

    It’s a new year, and I’m kicking it off with a big positive, over my usual, sarcastic fare.

    G (in 1st grade, if you still needed reference) is right now Math Hats. In his class they alternate between sight word memorization and basic math memorization. He has to work on the sight-words, but the math is something he’s known since TK. So we’ve been upping the ante. He has to tell us not only what the problem asks for, do it as if it was subtraction (and he’s gets negative numbers totally fine), and multiplication. Not at division yet, but at this rate, I might have to bust it out.

    Check out the video:

    Also observe that S2 is also hanging in there too (he’s chilling on addition and basic 1x and 0x multiplication).

    Oh — I’m also enjoying that G can go into the negative, but can barely pronounce it.
