My brother who's a 6th grade math teacher came to visit this weekend and likes to quiz him. He asked him what -12 + 9 is and he answered correctly. I had no idea he even knew about negative numbers. He then went on to teach him exponents.


Your brother is amazing! Wolf was doing negative math on his own at 3 or 4. Amazing what they figure out isn't it?
