Two Manhattan teachers are in hot water over an offensive homework lesson.

The assignment used killing and whipping slaves to teach math.

A teacher at O.S, 59 sent the questions home with her fourth-graders last month.

A second teacher planned to give the questions to her students, but changed her mind.

Both teachers face disciplinary action.
