The Mathematical Set..

Who remembers this?
Is it still being used in Schools?




You first lose the small Pencil
Then ruler gets missing
Then cleaner disappears
Then the sharpener gets lost
The only things that lasts is protractor and that yellow paper.

Were you able to learn how to use everything in the set perfectly?
What's the item that always disappears first for you?

    Mine never lasted even a week. I hated that protractor and maybe that’s why I never got to like or understand angles in mathematics even though I loved the subject.πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

  9. My baby sis misplaced her ruler,my mum despite her exposure and all of that still scolded my baby sis. I have finally concluded that Being a British citizen and having been around several countries my mum still will not change her African mentality.

    1. What does exposure have to do with scolding a child? Even oyinbos scold their kids, although they wouldn't spank.

    2. Lol! Let her be with her mentality.

    3. In your mind you've sounded as an exposed British citizen !
      LOL

    4. Who told you oyinbo don't smack? Some of them do.
      I live in the abroad and my children speak Yoruba very well and we roll like Africans as per the discipline path and eat all our Nigerian food and our oyinbo food too. I have also instilled discipline in them. Most times I don't even need to use eye contact they already know and understand.
      God help us nurture our children the right way.

    5. 16:00 we both know how African mothers scold their children is very different so don't go there. I'm not trying to put anyone down use your senses! if you can read and understand you'd get my point.

    6. Anon 16..00 even a dullard knows better than to compare Africa scold with western scold. Make una dey chill abeg everything no be to pull muscles.

  11. We weren't taught how to use all the items in the set, just buy and start using.

    The sharper or eraser goes missing first before the small pencil.
