### How Many Squares?

What does a substitute teacher do during 5th grade math tests? Sometimes he takes it himself. It's embarrassing if he can get only four of six problems correct.

This WAS a tough little practice test. Six questions and 30minutes to complete. The best student score was 4 correct...same as mine. Take the test to see how you do. Then "comment" with your answer. No cheating please!

How many squares do you see?

(I missed one !!**%\$&^% square! ...had to look on the answer sheet to find it)

That's 10 unless you count the pink square it's printed on.

I see 10, and I usually get these kinds of things wrong...

Another Substitute said...

There are definitely 11. Do it systematically. Top to bottom, left to right. There's the 5 little ones, the big one, & 5 middle sized ones forming a plus sign.

11. But it took more than one counting to find them all.

The answer is, indeed, 11 squares

(I missed the biggest one)
