Is It or Isn't It???

In preparation for our next Unit of Inquiry, Pattern, Rhyme and Rhythm, we opened a discussion about odd and even numbers and some of us wondered if 0 was an odd or even number or both.

After lots of thinking, there were strong opinions on the matter.

Luis:  "I think that 0 is even."

Beenish:  "I think it's an odd number because no one gets anything."

Matthew:  "I think it's odd and even because people don't know if it's odd or even."

Beatrix:  "I think it's an odd and even number, just like Matthew."

Irene:  "My mom and Dad say it's not odd and it's not even; it's really a magic number."

Kyle:  "Yes, and there are more odd magic numbers, like negative numbers; -1."

As you can see, it is a subject that needs more investigation.....

What do you think?
