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?
