Mom Graded It Wrong!

Math is a struggle for S. Currently, we are working through the Key To Algebra Series. Today, when I checked her work she had missed nearly every problem. I am weary from grading, redoing, regrading, redoing, regrading...

Today was going to be dad's day. When he got home from work, I explained that he was going to have to help with her math. (Thankfully, engineers love that. :-) ) I showed him that most of the mistakes were careless errors, and that it seemed she really understood the concepts. I wanted him to make a point to tell her that in math, attention to detail is especially important. His first question to her was, "Why do you think you got all these wrong?" Her reply, "Mom graded it wrong!"
