Use base ten blocks to model 156. Place 2 tens below the hundred to form a rectangle. How many groups of 12 does the rectangle show? How much of the dividend in not shown in this rectangle?

This is an actual math problem from my sons math book.

If theirs a 200 pound man in a pastry shop with a 20 dollar bill and he's ready to buy, in order to know his volume change you have to know the value of pie (pi). ;0

We never used our blocks for math, but... I guess you could have. I mean, it helped more for volume than it did for math problems.

You can't model 156 with ten blocks and further more why do they assume I would model it as a rectangle. It is just the worst example of academia imaginable.
