blondeviolin Posted February 13, 2012 Share Posted February 13, 2012 I've written some about the MEP meltdowns my 5yo has had while we work through the teens sections of 1b. Today, at the bottom of the sheet, she was given a series of numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). She was asked to place them in two different groups that would have equal sums. She pulled out the corresponding rods, and before trying any combination she said, "Nice try, but that's impossible.". Then she went on to explain that the sun of all five numbers was 15. And with 15 being odd, it did not split up to two equal parts. And this is why I LIKE MEP and want to keep it up. I just have to decide if we'll run through SM 1b or finish up MEP 1b (10wks left) first... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
