Below is a scan of part of a maths test paper that was handed in in our lower school this week. The pupil unfortunately got the answer wrong, which is unremarkable in itself, but what's interesting is the very literal answer given when asked to show his working...

Brilliant. I love how minds work.
"Show how you worked it out", the student has done a drawing of themselves thinking. One must think to work it out. It's a very literal answer.

It's a drawing of a small person with thought bubbles, small-child style.

It would be more impressive if they got it right

I agree in the fact that the student is being taught how to calculate the correct answer to the question, but the answer that has been given is in fact more correct than you might think!?

Funnily enough, that was the first one I mentioned to the teacher who brought me the above.

Would have been better if they'd put something random in the thought bubble, like a puppy - would explain the wrong answer at least :-P

No No No, the working is not the answer. I mean the answer of £1.11 when it should be £1.30.

Anyway they could also have shown a neuron firing to into synapse, ie how did you work it out -> I thought about it (duh)
or drawn a picture of a calculator.
