Grade 8 Math

From T. Rex comes this little quiz:

You Passed 8th Grade Math

Congratulations, you got 9/10 correct!

My mother is probably thinking, “Why the hell couldn’t he do that in 1967?” Well, once I figured out that algebra is a language with subjects, verbs, modifiers and punctuation — a revelation that didn’t come to me until I actually taught it — it all made sense. Good thing, too, since my job is working with numbers. (FYI, I missed Number 6.)

If Mrs. Burget was still alive, she would be so proud.
