ok so her homework tonight is math and the problems are about clocks and telling time.
each problem shows a clock with only the hour hand and they are to write the time based off of that. most of them, the hour hand is pointing between two numbers.
she kept writing, for example, 10:30, 6:30, 5:30, etc and i made her change them all to 10, 6, 5, etc because there is no minutes hand.
but when we got to the last page it was multiple choice, it showed a clock with the hour hand between the 5 and 6 and the choices were 5, half past 5, 6, or half past 6. so then i got to thinking that maybe she was right and this was how they were teaching them? i think it's pretty stupid to be honest if this is the case. it would make more sense to add in the minutes hand and teach them how to look at a clock correctly... right?
