DD2 is doing long division. She gets it. She can do most of it in her head but they still want to see every step. Silly but ok.

On today's worksheet, she is required to solve the problem, show her work AND explain it in words. How do you do that? Um, "I divided this by that and got the answer?" I don't get the explaining part.

It also makes me crazy that she can get the answer correct and still be counted wrong if she uses a different method to solve the problem.
