These kids use the word “literally” incorrectly all the time but this one has it figured out.

1/2 It does look like a Jeff. Max… not so much.

Yeah, it looks more of a ‘Benny’ to me.

My wife’s a teacher and she’s always showing me stuff like this. This is particularly good, though. What grade level is this?

Instead of writing what each shape is (hexagon, square, etc.), they took the directions literally and ‘named’ the shapes.

Lmao! I didn’t get it until this!

I like the fact that this kid is thinking out the box.
:wink:

OH!
I thought it was in reference to something like a cartoon.
Thanks

I wouldn’t weep for his or her future, they might find a good job in comedy, or test writing.

At least the kids thinking out of the box. I’d get hung up on word problems. Like why does this kid have 47 apples? And why is is he eating 12 of them? What is he deficient in and where is he stealing these apples from? Why is he stopping at apples?

A 7 sided figure is a “heptagon”

I might have answered George.

He should have named the shapes: Dumb and Dumber.

Here is everyone’s’ favorite math problem>>

Two trains are on the same tracks; heading towards each other on the path for a cataclysmic collision. One train is going 127 miles an hour. The other train is going 143.5 miles an hour. The trains are 1796 miles apart.

Exactly how long will it take before the two trains SLAM in to each other and make an unusually large noise?

:thinking:

PS… the two train engineers are sociopaths named: Jeff and Max.

it depends on how far apart they are…
