Division Halloween

Gray: Which one do you say first, the inside or the outside? Is it 72 divided by 8 or 8 divided by 72?

Me: You say the inside first. 72 divided by 8. But I can see how that would be totally confusing.

Gray: I like to think of it like it’s Halloween and 8 is planning to scare 72, but 9 is totally hiding on the roof to scare 8.

Me: … I’m not sure how that helps with the math, but it’s fantastic.

  1. Creative math!

  2. I’m telling you, that kid is a genius. Whether he is taking things apart and putting them back together, designing bracelets or copying his brother’s handwriting in graffiti — he is way, way too smart.
