We all know that kids say the darndest things. Sometimes they make us laugh and other times they simply baffle us with their profound reasoning, and here’s the perfect example.
Studies have shown that students who practice math problems frequently have better math grades. Too often, parents and teachers think students do not have an aptitude for math when the problem actually lies in the lack of math practice. Understanding the power of practice, Mom decided to quiz her son on a math problem, a simple one involving apples. Her son’s precious response—hilarious!
Mom, Dad and son are seated at a restaurant awaiting a bite to eat. Mom takes the opportunity to quiz her little genius on some math problems. She recorded the question about apples. This handsome little boy gets the answer right, but mom wants to ensure he understands how he got to the right answer.
Mom asks, “Why does it equal 41?” She reiterates the question, “If you have 25 apples, and I give you 16 more apples, why would you have 41 apples?”
What this young wiz kid says will have you laughing out loud?
