She has her hand raised when they're learning multiplication. She's the one who, while everyone else is assiduously avoiding eye contact, hopes she gets called on to do the problem at the board. She could do her homework in pen, but she chooses not to, cause that would just be showing off. When she gets bored in class and it looks like she's not paying attention, that's because she's a chapter ahead of everyone else, double-checking her answers. "Show your work" is seen as a challenge either because it's all in her head (how do I show you neurons firing?) or because she has to choose the most elegant solution. If a train leaves Chicago at 2 p.m., she's the engineer. (See what we did there?!)" Sent from my iPad

Considering they are trying to appeal to the "smart girls" market, one would think they could think of a better way to do it, than printing a slogan right across the bosom of a "baby-doll" tee.

I was that girl, but I would've never worn that!

Better than one I saw that said something along the lines of "I only go to class to plan for the weekend!"

I suspect, that like many other slogan shirts, not many will sell.

The bosom reminds me - when we do our annual tie-dye party I have to remind the women to carefully place the bulls eyes - most do not want two in the front!

Did you see the one they're referring to? I think it said something like "I'm too pretty to do math." Or maybe it said homework. At any rate, I wouldn't wear it, but I see what they're trying to do.

It's clever! If I were a girl ignored by the boys, except when they needed help with math, I'd definitely wear it.

I have to say that I agree with you. It's cute for any girl, not only the smart ones! Ive seen some of the tshirts that kids wear now days and this one is very mild compared to some others. Im not a math person, not that I didnt try. So if I had been, I would have worn this shirt! Ah heck I would have worn it anyways.
