“Amen”: Child wittily answers Math problem

  • “Amen,” wrote the child as he wittily answered the problem in Math
  • The child must have experienced a hard time in understanding the language used in the text
  • So, instead of giving the right answer to the problem, he just answered it with “Amen”

“Amen,” wrote the child as he wittily answered the problem in Math. The post went viral when netizen, Julieta Dela Cruz Muñoz posted the photo of the activity in the learning module.

The module is written in a Filipino dialect because the Department of Education mandated the use of the mother tongue of the students for easy comprehension.

If the Math problem will be translated in English, it is actually asking for the correct form of the numbers written in their place value. Ginatos stands for hundreds; tagnapulo means tens; and tinagsa means ones.

The child must have experienced a hard time in understanding the language used in the text, so instead of writing the numbers as the answer, what he wrote there was “Amen.”

With the witty answer of the child, social media users gave different reactions. Some also shared their experiences, while others supported the child’s answer saying,”oo nga naman! very important ang prayer. AMEN..” where she also included a laughing out loud emoticon.

Embracing the new normal set up in education, many methods have been used as alternatives to make sure educating the learners continues despite the threat of the virus. To avoid compromising the health of students every time they leave home to go to school, distance learning is employed in the form of using modules and online classes.

However, it is a lot more challenging not just for the students but to their parents or guardians as well. Since no teacher is around to do the explanations, the students must be guided by their parents or guardians.
