At a Loss with a Pyramid


I used to have the husband by my kids' side in terms of assignments most especially in Math. If there is someone they should call when it comes to graphical requirements and computer works, they call upon their Daddy to assist them. And now, that one moment has come when I needed someone to do the hard stuff for the kids, and I have no one but myself to do it.
I must admit, since he left for work, I have had a few worries. That includes the task of refilling the water dispenser, fixing plumbing works and electrical wires and a few tasks only a strong man could do, (I'm such a weakling, aside from having backbone problems".
So for the last few requirements in school, my daughter was required to create a 3D image of a pyramid. When I learned about what the teacher wanted, I was not happy at all and was out of bounds on how to do it, in fact, it kind of scared me a wee bit. 

But I immediately turned to Facebook where most guy friends were online. With the help of Google and friends who sent me instructions on how I could make an equilateral triangle as perfect as possible, 

And lo and behold, with some use of creativity I have in mind, our pyramid was made a reality. It may not be perfect but I like it the way it is. I just hope this could pass the daughter's teacher's standards.

I'm sure the teacher appreciated it!

Pareho tayo when it comes sa mga ganyang projects asawa ko din pinapagawa ko. Wala kasi akong tiwala sa gawa ko. Hehe. But you made it sheng. For sure, pasado yan sa teacher nya. Galing!
