Y = WHAT?!?

Oh wow!!  It’s Tuesday!!  I almost forgot to link up with Supah over at Adventure’s of a WannaBe SupahMommy for Post-It Note Tuesday!!  I think I’m just a little distracted today, but I can’t let Tuesday pass me up without posting!!


Ok, here we go.  For the past week and a half I have been teaching myself how to do the new-age Math that my tween is learning.  Or should I say….TRYING to learn??  It’s crazy stuff like finding the slope and y-intercept of a line, finding the rise and run of a flight of stairs…
















Oh Yeah….I’d kick her!!



















Soooo….lesson learned….Waffles with Chocolate chips are the ultimate snack when learning about slopes and y-intercepts!!

Go!  Link up with Supah and have an awesome day!!

Actually, I will need it in a few years when my guy gets to be a tween. You can laugh at me then :)

LOL. Thanks for the laugh! I was never good in math and it shows when I try to help my niece with homework.

Oh gosh, slope is the WORST! Hahah.
And I totally love Jillian. That woman isn't large, but man, she is SO in charge. I guess there's a new show where she comes and lives with you for like two weeks and gets your ass in shape. I can't wait for it!

Don't hate on me but I LOVED this stuff. For the first time with math, I did really well. I could look at a line and figure the integers (or what ever they are called). Loved it! Don't remember much about it beyond that! LOL! Real useful stuff, huh?

I have just started to tell my daughter is she "yo-yo" "You're on your own!" Haha. But I like the way you taught it. Effective and tasty too.

As for Jillian or whatever her name is, I would just sit my fat ass on her. HAHAHA

OMG...I am cracking up b/c I am an Algebra kids always ask me when they're going to have to use this crap. Then I ask them what they want to be when they grow up...they typically have not thought past lunch, so I get some inane answer.

I always revert to the fact that Algebra is training their puny little brains to solve problems in a logical way...because who doesn't need that skill as an adult?

BTW...the waffle thing? BRILLIANT!

Kick her? I'd sit on that bitch if she pointed her finger at me like that!!!

The waffles and chocolate really are a genious!
