When it doesn’t add up

Filed under: Uncategorized — Andrew @ 12:51 am

A few nights ago, Sam had a word problem in her math homework that involved reading a departure and arrival chart of an airline, and determine when I flight that left Warsaw Poland would arrive in Paris France. Sam did the arithmetic and put the answer in the blanks set aside for it. Then she added a PS note and pointed out the time zone differences would adjust the way the Parisians would consider when the plane arrived (as opposed to judging it on the time zone of the country where the flight departed.) Then she added a PPS that pointed out that if the plane left Poland then it must not have been run by Jet Blue.
