Fun with Math

Fun with Math

Molly has a surprising new form of entertainment while I drive her around in the car.  She is doing a math self-assessment.  For fun!  Her idea, I swear!   And this from a girl who was doing extra math tutoring just last year!  You have no idea how happy this makes a dad.

Specifically, Molly is doing the official State of Texas 3rd grade math assessment practice workbook.  It’s an old copy that she inherited from Claire.

Occasionally as we drive around, Molly will ask me to check her math.

Molly: “Dad, what’s 18 plus 7?”

Me: “I think you probably know that one.  Do you have a guess?”

Molly: “Mmmmm… 25?”

Me: “Yep.  Well played!”

I asked Molly what she enjoys about doing math for fun, and she just says, “I dunno.  I just like it.”  She did tell me me she does sometimes get frustrated by multi-step questions.  I told her a little challenge can be a good thing.  She nodded and kept plugging away at the workbook.

How this happened, I do not know.  I guess the math tutoring worked! 🤷🏻‍♂️
