I check his homework for him sometimes and last night problem number three was “Using estimates find the quotient of 30,497 and 48.” The super smart guy’s simple answer “Ok”. Seriously, that’s all he wrote was “Ok.” I told him, I think they want you to actually show what you rounded each number to then divide. His response “Oh well, I just thought they wanted me to do it in my head.” Oy……
