Hayden's favorite subjects in school are math and science. I love that he loves math. I think that math can be intimidating to some kids. I always check his homework before he takes it back to school and I am amazed at some of the word problems he gets. I for one hated word problems as a kid, still do. This one in particular puzzled me:
On a game board, landing on blue means to move ahead 1 space, landing on red means to move ahead 2 spaces, and landing on orange means to move back 1 space. If you took 30 spins, about where would you expect to be on the game board, relative to where you started?
I'll be honest, this took some thought but I finally came up with the answer. Are you smarter than a 4th grader? (answer in comments)
