For the homeschooling parent, math is often one of the scariests subjects to try to teach. Even if the teaching parent is a math whiz, they still have to find ways of breaking down complex concepts so that the student can understand it.
In fact, I have heard it said that the math teacher who is naturally skilled at math often is not the best math teacher. These kinds of people often have little sympathy for the poor sot to whom numbers and mathematical logic makes little sense.
In honor of all of us parents (and those precious teachers) who have to teach math, I want to share this video.
I’ve been there.
The blank stare.
The nonsensical answers.
Someone was watching me teach math when they created this video.
