    Ah, that look on a teacher’s face when the student actually starts learning! (Especially when they start learning to ask the right question and then (hopefully) figure out how to find the answer!)

    An answer that programmers know all too well.

    Well, the gears are turning after a little teacher-WD-40!

    Burke is sharp. A teachable moment, i.e., difference vs the count

    Something is wrong. This strip has a kid asking a question that a kid might actually ask.

    Hmmmm…. I seem to remember an issue like this cropping up back in the year 1999… or was it 2000? Or 2001?

    It’s the difference between inclusivity and exclusivity. Look it up.

    Another step in the right direction.

    Bryson kids are rarely shown in the act of learning; they are show already knowing everything, and spouting it out, in the most obnoxious ways. Or they’re shown using their super-human intuition, figuring things out on their own. (Which is nothing but a self-love fantasy for the author, as they’re all little versions of himself.) When they’re shown being taught something, or at least being pointed in the right direction by a teacher, “Frazz” is immeasurably better. Far, far more accessible.

    Learning is fantastic. Learning from someone who cares about teaching is even more so. I wish like hell we’d see more of it in this strip.

    Just my opinion. (For those who can’t imagine why anyone but themselves may be entitled to one.)

    If I climb floor 1 through 5, I go up 4 floors. If I count floors 1 through 5, I count 5 floors.

    How arbitrary, writing “10” but also “fifteen.”

    @chromosome – Exactly! Cardinal numbers (counting) vs. Ordinal numbers (order)… 8^)

    And therein lies the message for these times: If you don’t understand inclusivity, the same stuff is going to seem harder.

    Because when you /start/ question 15, you’re at point 15.0, but when you /finish/ question 25, you’re at point 25.99999….

    Or because 15-15 is zero, but when you answer only question 15, you’ve answered one question.
