## Main Question or Discussion Point

I just have to put this in here! In a comic strip titled "FOXTROT" drawn by Bill Amend, today (I'm reading it in the Washington Post), we have a teenage girl writing on a homework paper:

"First, I looked in the back of the book, but it wasn't an odd numbered problem.

Then I asked my little brother, but he wanted me to pay him $5.

Finally, I found it on the internet with Google."

Why is she writing that? As she tells her little brother:

"My math teacher wants us to show how we get our answers."!!
