In Washington D.C. parents are upset at math problems that came home with their third graders from school. Problems read something like, "bloodthirsty aliens the sucked the blood out 828 teachers and left them for dead,” "killed 163 terrorists, 296 murderers, and 206 arsonists. How many criminals did he kill on an average day?” and “Baking Africans, Americans, and Indians in ovens: "How many desperate people were in each oven?" Would you be upset by these math problems?
Steve says he would have been interested in math if he had questions like this and Slacker doesn’t think there is really anything wrong with it. When it comes to his son Noah, if he is in a pinch trying to teach him something, he will try cows but it never works and he ends up describing the problem with Star Wars terms.
I’m not a fan of those math problems to be honest. These children are in third grade and should not have to deal with these kinds of problem. They should have like Slacker normally says, butterflies and rainbows. Let them be kids!
