It's late on a Sunday night and this little guy has left his math homework to the last minute. He hates math. Numbers really make him sweat. When he opens his book to look at the problems, he wishes they'd all go away. Suddenly a monster appears and offers to do the work for him. Sign on the line and it will all be done. So, he signs and when the monster asks if the boy will pay now or later, the boy chooses later. So, the monster gets to work and does it all. Addition, subtraction and graphing are not this little guy's problem anymore. But the next day at school when the teacher calls the boy to the board, he doesn't know what to do....his hiney is toast." Back at home he owes that monster and now he comes up a bit short. Will he find enough coins that will add up for him? Now it's his turn to do his homework and with the monster cringing in the background, the little boy tackles the decimal problems. The monster shouts, "You need me." The boy works on and as he does he starts to put that monster right where he belongs.
What if a monster showed up in your bedroom and said he would do all of your math homework for you?Would you pay him to do that?What if he got all the problems right and you got an “A” for your work?But then, what if the teacher called you up to the board to show everyone how to do the problems?Uh oh.
