While playing online math tic tac toe, Phillip was showing me that if he clicked on the answer box, it would pull down a list of numbers to choose from. I immediately saw that it was only a list of numbers that had been typed before, and the number he was looking for (5) was not there.
I typed in “5” for him and left it for him to click enter. He said, “Mom, I could have picked from the box.” I said, “It wasn’t there.” Wanting to see for himself, he deleted the answer I had typed and pulled up the box to choose from. Sure enough there was the number 5 right at the bottom. He clicked it and said, “See?” 😀
