In math we practiced our resiliency with some tricky problems that followed patterns. If John, Mark and Anna have 10, 9, and 8 pencils respectively and they each lose 2, how many do they each have left? Well, taking away 2 makes a pattern like a staircase so they have 8, 7, and 6 left!
If Eve is 7 centimeters shorter than Joey, and Joey is 91 centimeters tall, how tall is Eve? We tested our skills and solved the problem so many different ways. You can hop back 7, you can take out 10 and subtract 7 from 10 and add the leftovers together, you can exchange a bundle of 10 for ten ones and take away 7 that way, AND YET the answer is 84 any way you solve it. We love math!
