When some parents revealed their kids’ homework, it caused the kids to slant their heads and ask for assistance. Thankfully, some Reddit and Twitter people weighed in and offered their opinions.
Students are given increasingly challenging school assignments as they age. On the other hand, children do occasionally face challenging assignments.
In situations like these, some parents turn to the internet community for assistance in finding a solution for their children. A portion of them are posted on Twitter and Reddit.
Grade 1 English
A mother was perplexed by her first-grader son’s English assignment, which required him to circle the pictures that resembled a fish’s fin at the end. The options that were accessible, though, were not what was shown. A frog, a spoon, a jar lid, and a hamburger bun were among the options.
Several Reddit users shared their opinions with the bewildered mother, suggesting that the last sound did not always have to rhyme with fin. Among the responses were “spoon” and “bun,” both of which ended with a “n.”
Kindergarten School Work
When an adult assists, kindergarten homework problems are typically simple to complete. One parent, though, was unable to name the picture written on the work sheet using the three-letter term. The image showed a rabbit playing with her own bunnies.
Thankfully, a thoughtful Redditor came up with the greatest solution: a pet. The individual claimed that these worksheets aim to confuse children by altering the letter’s sound at the end of the word in an attempt to make the final one more challenging.
Grade 3 Math Problem
Elementary school math problems can frequently be solved quickly using all of the provided numbers. But a third-grader was required to answer the following: “Janell had fifteen marbles.” A few of them were lost by her. What number does Janell now own?
A Reddit member proposed that the answer was less than 15, but they felt that a third-grader was not the appropriate audience for such a topic. Some readers thought the student ought to respond with something like the query, such “Janell lost her marbles.” Someone else said, “She has some left.”
A Six-Year-Old’s Homework
While some six-year-old students’ educational problems are visual, one student’s assignment was so complex that even her parents couldn’t understand it. A print of multiple apples and a paint splatter surfaced on her activity sheet.
How many apples could the paint cover? was the question. The maximum number is 20. The question baffled a number of Reddit users as well, with one person thinking it was a riddle.
Grade 1 Math
A grade one Singaporean math issue was shared on Twitter by someone, and it looked to be nearly unsolvable. One guy did, however, figure out the solution but slightly changed the query.
Another Math Problem
People were confused when another math question was posed on Twitter. Students were required to determine a form’s perimeter based on calculations of another rectilinear shape in this question.
“It’s very much justified to ask these to a [ten-year-old],” a person sarcastically said in response to the article, offering a convoluted explanation.
Solving for X
While math might be challenging at times, there is typically only one answer. But this particular math issue proved to be too difficult for the Twitter community.
Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony takes forty minutes to play with a 120-piece orchestra. How long would it take to perform the symphony with sixty players? The question said, “Let P be the number of players and T be the playing time. One Twitter user retorted, stating that it might be too complicated:
In the instance of this Beethoven 9 challenge, the math is unimportant. I can speak from experience when I say that the speed of the symphony has nothing to do with how many musicians are playing it.
One website where users go to ask questions is Reddit.
