A Short Story

Some time back Ingel observed this conversation between his brother and his nephew.

“If I give you one book and one more book, how many books do you have in total?” Ingel’s brother asked him.
“Three.” his nephew replied.

His brother, feeling dismayed asked again, expecting his son to have already learned basic arithmetic.
He asked again, this time mouthing every word of his question slowly.
Ingel’s nephew, replied hesitatingly, “Three”.

Disappointed, his brother thought maybe toy cars which appealed to his son worked better.
He asked enthusiastically, “If I give you one Tomica toy car and another Tomica toy car, how many will you have?”
With a smile on his face, the nephew answered, “Two?”
Hearing the answer my brother felt triumphant and Ingel was equally pleasant.
Yet one mystery remain.

“Now, if I give you one book and one more book, how many will you have?”
Promptly his nephew raised his fingers and answered, “Four!”
Exasperated, the father questioned his son, “How so?”
In a intimated voice the young nephew replied, “Because my uncle just gifted me a book this morning.”

Ingel is always reminded of this story whenever he teach students of new concepts.
Though funny, it serves as an important reminder to always view situations from his students’ perspective.
