Math Whiz

These photos are a couple months old but I came across them on my phone and decided to post...

One day Ellie came home excited to show me something. "Look, Mommy! Look what I can do! I can add ANY number I can think of!"

A couple days later she said, "Look, Mommy! I can subtract any number too, but I am not sure how to do the negative sign. Is this right?" Slow down girl, slow down.

P.S. I realize the second answer is not right, but come on... this girl is only in 1st grade. Had she chosen her numbers a bit more strategically, she would have gotten the answer just fine. Those negatives are tricky creatures.

I totally forgot how to "borrow" from the next column when subtracting (and I went to MIT!). That is some tricky stuff, indeed. Way to go, Ellie!!!
