Thing Two has had word problems in his math homework every day this week: an uphill battle for the two of us to get through, to say the least. This cartoon made me laugh right out loud when I saw it today!
It also reminded me of this one:
I'm a biologist. Biology is a discipline more geared toward those good with words than those good with numbers, unlike (e.g.) chemistry and physics. I don't even want to discuss how many math, chemistry and physics classes I was required to take as a Biology major, though! Ugh. I got through calculus I and II entirely through the good graces of my college roommate, who was able to translate math into English for me.
And speaking of math atheism, one more...
Yes, I'm a dork. But we already knew that.
