top banana graduation treat

pretty soon the end of school year 2012-2013 
will come to an end. and many will graduate.

hopefully they will use their knowledge to figure out complicated math problems in their next grade level or in the real world. lord knows i had my share of trouble trying to help my 10-yr-old with some of the math problems he brought home for homework. and i thought i was fairly smart, until i read those tricky math problems.

:>P

blah. what happened to 2x2=4 kinda things? at the rate they are pushing our kids to learn pre-calculus in elementary school, no wonder we will all be flying space rockets in like 10 years or so when they graduate.

so how is your math anyway? 
see if you can figure this one out. 
(here'a hint, read from left to right, not up and down.)

ok, that one was a little hard...
so let's try it in steps.

STEP ONE: 
woah! is that a chocolate covered banana?!?! why i think so!
you can cover the banana the way i covered these in my last post, so the banana won't break.

ok this next step takes a bit of skill cuz it gives you options.

STEP TWO:
hey! what is that? a diploma saying "top banana"?!?!
why i think it is.

so let's take the last 2 steps and stick them together to see what we have so far.

STEP THREE:
heehee
now for the last part of the original math problem.

STEP FOUR:

another heehee!
you can get details on making the cap here if those are unclear to you above.
and yes i purposefully put it on crooked just because i could.

anyway,
so the answer to the original math problem has been solved.

and here it is!

it's a super-goofy-ultra-silly grad treat for your super-awesome-graduation-kiddo-person-adult-friend-neighbor-family-member-acquaintance kind of treat.

i mean, look at all the stress that you went thru trying to figure out just ONE math problem. imagine what they had to do and thank God you already graduated!

so let's do this:
and pat that person on the back or give them a huge hug for being a top banana and graduating!
plus remember to remind them to keep using those brain skills of theirs when they enter their next grade level or real world cuz,


CONGRATS to ALL you TOP BANANAS of 2013!

especially my daughter graduating from middle school & going into high school and driving soon-YIKES!
my mind's gone already.
