Rabbit Math

The joy of being an elementary teacher

When addition only makes sense to Little Johnny


The first grade teacher. Miss Figpot asked Little Johnny, “Johnny if I gave you two rabbits and then two more rabbits and then two more rabbits, how many would you have?”

Johnny replied, “Seven rabbits, Miss Figpot.”

The teacher asked again, “Listen Johnny, If I gave you two rabbits, plus two more rabbits, plus two more rabbits, how many rabbits would you have altogether?”

Johnny smiled, “That’s easy, Teacher, I would have seven.”

“Ok Johnny,” Miss Figpot said. “Let’s try it a different way. If I gave you two cans of Pepsi, plus two more cans of Pepsi, plus two more cans of Pepsi. How many cans of Pepsi would you have?”

“Six cans.” Johnny answered.

“OK,” said the teacher. “Now think of that with this question. If I gave you two rabbits, then two more rabbits, then two more rabbits how many would you have?”

“Seven, Teacher.” Johnny replied.

Exasperated, Miss Figpot asked, “Why seven?”

Johnny replied, “Because I already have one rabbit at home!”
