Lol, at least I'm not the only geek here! (see a couple posts above yours)


Also, WW is back up now and I just tried the second code I got, and this time it worked! Yay! To everyone who hasn't gotten one yet, don't give up! And thanks to everyone who had great tips on how to find the diamonds!

I agree that this game is unfair to younger players, and they do say that no one under 18 is allowed to enter the contest. I thought Webkinz is supposed to be for kids? However, FOIL is not needed for this math problem, order of operations (PEMDAS) is. Sorry, I'm just a nerd and studying to be a future teacher, I don't mean to be patronizing...

Thanks for the math lessons, now I officially feel pathetic. I knew FOIL didn't sound right but it was all I could think of off the top of my head. We don't use simple acronyms in college calc! It's sad that I knew it was 'please excuse my dear aunt sally' but wrote FOIL anyway. Oh well. Either one I don't expect small children to know. I don't even expect them to know division or multiplication.

I hope everyone is getting lots of diamonds/dresses still! And for those with used codes, keep trying!

No FOIL was needed, just order of operations ... they learn that in the 4th grade.

I'm hoping that this contest isn't like the flying rug one where it was impossible to win anything.. I'm crossing my fingers hoping that I'll win something!
Thanks for posting this up! You guys always are the best with getting news up. =]

Blah, I just can't get away with anything I clearly need to revisit simple math before continuing on in college calc.

Aw, don't feel bad! They look pretty similar, and younger kids really wouldn't know how to do either one. I'm just a nerd!

My friend has a 4th grader, the only reason I know that's when it's taught .. I have had to help her w/ her homework. lol


Calc is much different. Not a ton of basic math going on in there. Tons of algebra though.
