One of the problems I have doing math homework is wanting to take shortcuts (get ‘er done). I suspect, however, that it doesn’t save time in the end.
Then, of course there are cases that prove that being meticulous is essential:
“Spain builds submarine 70 tons too heavy after putting a decimal in the wrong place”
And, if that’s not enough…
“Spanish Sub’s New Problem: Once Too Heavy, Now It Can’t Fit in Dock”
Take your time, follow the steps, and check your work kids! 🙂
