Elm in NJ Posted February 13, 2008 Share Posted February 13, 2008 one of my 1st grade twins. They are halfway through CLE maths 2 and they are doing great. But now we are doing borrowing, one of them keeps putting negative numbers for some of the questions. He has just finished arguing with me that in the problem 51-17 , 1-7 is -6, and 5-1 is 4, so the answer is -46. He refuses to consider borrowing because according to him that is 'stealing' and since he is not giving back the 1 ten again, he is not going to take it in the first place. Talk about twisted logic. OH, well. Back to the table! Elmeryl :confused: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
