Talking Non-Cents

| TX, USA | Learning | January 24, 2014

(I’m tutoring a student in algebra after school.)

Me: “Okay. So, now you just need to divide 150 by 25.”

Student: “I need a calculator.”

Me: “No, you don’t. How many quarters would it take to get $1.50?”

Student: “Six.”

Me: “Good. So 150 divided by 25 is?”

Student: “I told you I need a calculator to do that.”
