Homework Woes

I don’t know which problems to do.

I didn’t get the notes from the board.

I have no idea what I am doing.

I can’t find a pencil.

Where is my calculator?

Now I need an eraser.

That is not a parallelogram.

That is not how you find the area of the parallelogram.

I did say one half.

How am I supposed to know!

I am just too stupid to do math!

Ok. That formula is A=bh.

Now, I need to add each area.

Thank you for helping me.

Sorry about the attitude.

  1. This is really powerful and vivid! To be honest, it also gave me some math PTSD flashbacks! I’m pretty sure I said ALL of these things to my parents as they tried to help me with math! And I think my son said many of these things to me as I tried to help him with HIS math.

  2. Oh, homework! Oh, math! Besides Physics, I don’t remember not wanting to do homework in school…maybe Vocabulary workbooks for Mrs. Farmer, but I actually liked learning about all the words, just not the homework. But you can’t have one without the other!
    I love that your slice is just conversation! This will be inspiration for a structure in a future post for me. Thank you!
