    I hate to see how he handles multiplication problems.

    You can if you’re adding negative numbers.

    Put some REAL Money on the table, they’ll get his attention.

    I think he’s just flat-out determined not to learn anything.

    I too was/am mathematically challenged by the four basic operations of so-called Simple Arithmetic. I can just about manage to balance a checkbook. To this day I don’t know
    how to solve the problem of cars starting at different times
    and speeds, nor of tanks filling at the top and emptying at
    the bottom. I didn’t care, and it was not taught in a way that
    engaged any interest. Nor was Plane Geometry. Algebra
    lost me completely; looking at equations made my head spin,
    and being told that one of the basic rules was that a negative
    multiplied or divided by a negative equalled positive struck
    me as complete insanity. As I understood it, algebra had
    been invented by some crazy wog, who had been out in the
    sun too long, and who had nothing better to do than invent
    intellectual games for which I had no interest or aptitude…
    If math CAN be made interesting, it certainly WASN’T. I
    know just where Calvin is coming from.

    This was many years ago. From what I hear of New Math,
    [via Tom Lehrer], I’m glad I missed it. Shudder to think how
    traumatic that would have been. Old Math is confusing
