• 52. But please ask him to show work and go through the steps, or he'll never learn.

5+7=12, carry the one, 1+3=4 plus 1 equals 5. That's how he gets 52.

• anime, they don't carry numbers anymore. My kids think I'm a magician when I do math that way. LOL.

• They do at my kids school. The teacher refuses to use Everyday Math.

• Wow, lucky you! I can't stand the way my kids do math. It's so much more complicated the way they do it. Defies logic.

Answer by QuinnMae at 7:27 PM on Oct. 29, 2013

• If you can't do simple math you NEED to talk to the teacher so they know you are not a resource for your child at home.... this is VERY important!!

• Bait+epic fail = 52
As Crafty suggested, it might be a very good idea to tell you child's teacher that you are able to type numbers, find answers on Cafe Mom in less than a minute, but are unable to use a caculator application.
