“He handed me my test back and I was looking over it and I just immediately lost it, I was laughing so hard I was crying,” Maeve Lindell said. “I showed it to my friend and pretty soon half the class was laughing about it.”
Teacher Jordan Marks told BuzzFeed News he gave Maeve the extra points because he appreciated her artwork all semester. He said he picked the number at random.
“It’s the end of the school year and she really deserved it,” he said.
Marks added that he often tries to do things to make math a little more fun for his students.
“Anything I can do to try to get a laugh out of the kids I try to do to break up the monotony of the classroom,” he said.
