Home Schooling, is it quality?

I just helped Dustin with his math homework.

EG: Simplify this ratio 15 cats to 50 dogs.

Answer: 3 cats to 10 dogs or 1 cat to 3.333_ dogs

Dustins answer: 3 continous

EG: The temperature went up 7 degrees between 1990 and 1997.

The temperature went up 6 degrees between 1997 and 2000.

During which period did the temperature climb the fastest?

Answer: 1997 to 2000

Dustins answer: 7...between 1990 and 1997.

EG: A line goes from x,y coordinates (1,1) to (4,2) on a cartesian graph. Find the slop.

The formula is Slope=m where m=(y1 - y2) / (x1 - x2)

Answer: 1/3

Dustins answer: 9

Matter of fact, out of 60 questions, he only got 1 right by accident.

**He said it didn't matter. He'll still get a C.**

First off, I'm wondering HOW?
