Of course, I did what I thought right. I sided with my 7 year old. Not because he's the 7 year old, but because I was never taught this "non-determinant number" thing that my
So here I am 3 hours later looking up the answer I gave my 7 year old to see if it was correct. It's moments like these that I am SO grateful that I have assistance with homeschooling, at least in this case via an on-line math program. They would be so screwed if I were teaching them math. I know my strengths and my weaknesses as a homeschooler. What I can and cannot teach them. The things that I can teach them vastly outweigh what I cannot (at this specific point it's math, skateboarding, guitar and knot tying), everything else I totally rock at! Just ask my kids, I'm sure they would agree. They better, or they are in trouble.
Oh, and I found the answer thanks to Wikipedia "Zero is an even number, because it is divisible by 2."
HA! By the way, I'm not even going to search the non-determinant number thing because at this point, I'm right. Why rock the boat? I'm rolling with my rightness.
