Wordless Wednesday: Geometry? Seriously?

I don't remember learning geometry in 3rd grade math... and, I am the first to admit that I was far from a star student when I did have to take a class in it in high school.  So, you can imagine when I am helping my 3rd grader with homework lately how long it must take!  He seems to get it, which helps, but I am always amazed at the advanced levels of math they are introduced to in elementary school!  He has a test tomorrow and it was his idea to write up flash cards to study tonight.

I guess I finally found a reason to have paid more attention when I took the class all those years ago... who knew that the "real world" application I'd have would be helping my kids with their homework!

Holy Cow, Geometry in third grade? All I remember about third grade math is trying to memorize the times tables and failing even at that. Good luck!
