I am reduced, to a new low.
I cannot do 4th grade Math.
HOOOOLY COW, shocking and pitiful, even for me a math lowlife.
I am blaming tonight's incident on the "new math" style, in which my son's homework is designed.
Each day, a cute, vexing packet of HELL comes home, and takes me 20 minutes to figure out.
Each day, this cute packet, designed for people like me, with math anxiety, perplexes the shit out of me, and nearly reduces me to tears.
I can only imagine how it makes my son feel (psst... not empowered, I'll bet!)
I am about toorganize an angry mob, in picketing the school and demanding Singapore math, and perhaps CANING, for the idiots, that came up with these math games.
