It’s Mathematically Delicious

 

What happens when you give your kids on the math team

Instead of counting the number of marshmallow hearts in their bowl—

they give you the mean, median and mode.

Is it pathetic that I have no idea what mean, median and mode are? Math was NOT my subject! But I like lucky charms :)

I don't even know what those things are!

What a fun activity. We also ate lucky charms because I started that as our tradition also when you gave me the great idea when we were sort of neighbors in Utah. I didn't know you went the extra mile and handed out fun activities too. Luckily Carter's teacher did some fun counting activity with the marshmellows at school. I love how you make holidays so fun!

You give him an F for not following directions. Did you ask for that? No. Then you tell him really annoyed that you are going to have to wait until Dad gets home to check it!

Cami said...

Great idea!
I know what the median is.
I used to know what a mean was.
Mode?
Fun for you!

Paige's response cracks me up.
