Smarter Than An 8th Grader?

HH was helping Sydney with her Algebra this evening.
He came strutting into the living room and smugly said to me, "I wish this 8th grade teacher would challenge me a little bit."
Smart A#@.
He knows darn good and well that I have been unable to help her with anything math-related since around the 3rd grade.

Math is horrible. The program my son's school uses is so confusing! I hate it!

Yeah, but you just wait until she brings home her trigonometry. You'll show him who's boss then. :)

ohhhh I soo feel ya there. My husband is a math wiz. Amazing to me since he seems like the one that would know nothing about math, and all about, SPORTS lol. I always struggled in math, so my boys go to him, thank God they have him! My older brother is in algebra 2, in high school, do you know his own teacher couldnt help him!!!! had to get him a tutor..now if that doesnt say how confusing the mess is, I dont know what can! What teacher should be teaching if they cant help! Heck, at least we know not to fake the understanding of the crap LOL.
