Math problems

Mr. 6 checked out some books on math from the library last week and has been happily writing long addition problems for himself and solving them. He has really gotten the hang of carrying a number to the next column. He asked me if long subtraction was the same as long addition was the same and so I explained that you borrow from the next column rather than carrying the number. This led to long multiplication and long division which he is still getting the hang of.

Of course, what do you do when you learn a cool new thing? Teach it to your brother. Mr. 6 spent quite a bit of time explaining long addition to Mr. 4 and the two of them happily practiced math problems while I got lunch ready.
