Okay all you smarty pants people out there. Riddle me this... UPDATED
4th grade math problem.
Write a number sentence to solve the problem using either multiplication or division. Then draw a picture to show the new number sentence.
( your number sentence must equal zero by either division or multiplication, and cannot have a multiple function math sentence. It's one or the other like (x)(y) = 0 or (x)/(y) = 0.
Then show me how to draw a picture showing the answer...
Annnnd go. I'm loosing it.
Dumbest question ever.
Here is the answer.
32-8-8-8-8=0 (use multiplication or division to rewrite number sentence...)
0x0=0 or 0/0=0
kicker? There is no drawing for this one, or the other question where 0 was the answer. Which is why she didn't mean for the kids to circle and complete those two questions. She felt they were poorly written examples for this worksheet. Ya think?
Who writes these worksheets? Gahhhhhhh! Lol
If you want to do it step by step which is how we would have been taught-
you could also use
Still do not understand how just because you can get the same answer by solving the original equation (or number sentence as they are now called) and then using a multiplication, or division function to get 0, helps them correlate the whole thing. It isn't helping me that's for darn sure.
I'm sitting in her class now listening to the morning math lesson. My head already hurts, think I need to go volunteer in the library until math is OVER! Lol
