Subjects moms once thought were useless

Math
 
Son:  I ate four chicken nuggets. Can I be done?
Mom:  I gave you six nuggets.  There are four nuggets left.  That means you only ate two.  Keep eating.
 
Physics
 
ZhuZhu Pet Ramp Assembly Instructions:  Step 12.  Assemble the tunnel tops by pressing one hinge post into matching hinge notch on the tunnel section and then snap in the other hinge.
 
Chemistry
 
Silly putty + fleece = hardened vomit-looking stain.  Add vegetable oil + laundry detergent and water = fleece without silly putty.
 
Geometry
 
To remove an oval-shaped object (head of a 5-year-old) from a rectangle (space between two stair railings), turn sideways and pull back with force.
 
Word Problems
 
A car leaves the garage at 6:45 a.m. carrying two children, ages 3 and 5.  It travels five miles at 35 mph because of rush hour traffic, and spends an extra ten minutes waiting at red lights.  It waits in line at the drop-off for the school for 20 minutes, and then accelerates to 60 mph to rush off to the day care.  If the car travels another ten miles, what time does the driver arrive at work?
