Applied mathematics

Today my mum accompanied Matei while she fruitlessly attempted to get her prescription filled, and returned home very impressed by the new vocabulary he had heard.

"We met so many wankers today!" he informed us brightly. "First we met two, and then we went to another shop and met another one!"
"How many wankers was that in total?"
"Three!"
"Well done."

At least you can say he's good at maths.

But, do you ever have a sneaking suspicion that as smart as Matei is, he knew very well that "wanker" was a bad word already and was just doing that for a shock?

Brilliant. I can't wait to see this approach incorporated into primary maths.

Is he able to identify the wankers on his own and distinguish them from non-wankers? If so, you may have a prodigy on your hands.

Write that down and take it in to school. The teachers can use it as evidence of his mathematical knowledge and ability to apply it in daily life.
Well done, Matei. Took me years to learn to identify wankers and you've cracked it at this tender age!
