Klogic Vs. Math

I thought math was supposed to be a strength of the Korean Education system.

I wondered what was taking her so long to put the students into pairs. Everything seemed so straight forward. But to my 5th grade co-teacher something just was not right.  Something needed to change.

So she moved a student here. She moved a student there, and still she couldn’t get the pairs correct. She rearranged pairs, looked at the class with her hands on her hips, sighed.

I was becoming tired of this.

Guess how long it took her to realize there were only 25 students in the class.
