There are times when every kid is going to get stuck on a question in school, no matter the subject they might need a bit of assistance in figuring out the solution to a question. But when it comes to this young man from Dalmellington, Scotland, he may have taken it a bit too far; but he was quite clever about it!
Leanne Gormanley says she was just getting dinner started when she heard her Amazon Echo device in the same room where her 9-year-old son, Bryce, was supposed to be doing his math homework. When she went to investigate she found he was getting more help than he likely should have been by having Alexa do all the work! “As I was cooking, I could hear Alexa in the background saying something, so I went into the living room to check — and there I caught him,” the mom told the Daily Mail. “He was completely oblivious to me being there, so I went back into the kitchen, got my phone and videoed.”
I would say it’s a fantastic effort son 🤣🤣🤣 NOT. Alexa is NOT how you do your home work Bryce. 10/10 for cleverness on this aul boy 🤣🤣🤣 really could not believe the cheek of him doing it when I was in the vicinity🤣🤣🤣🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🥰🥰 mailto:email@example.com

Video by Leanne Gormanley from Facebook.
In the video, which has been viewed 2.8 million times and shared over 40 thousand times, you can see Bryce asking the device for the answer to a math question and writing it down, when his mother asks what he thinks he is doing he responds with a cheeky grin and proceeds to continue to ask for answers as his mother informs him that is not how homework is done and that he will be doing it all again himself.
But the question must be asked, is this any different than using a calculator to get the answer? Is it cheating or is it just a good use of the technology available to him? You can be the judge for yourself but it seems this mom was not impressed.
