Common Core From The Past

cashier 1

It’s amazing that we didn’t start teaching Common Core Math to our kids earlier as you can see how easy it is to do.

13 x 7 really is 28 because after all the steps clearly show that to be the case. If you’re not familiar with Common Core Math find a kid in elementary school or middle school and see if you can do their math homework.

 

 

It’s no wonder I can’t get back the correct change from a young cashier unless they have a register that tells them how much !

    There wasn’t anything wrong with the way were doing math and now kids can’t think on their feet – they can’t recall what they memorized, because they don’t memorize anymore.

    Our granddaughter is learning this type of math and her homework may as well be in Greek. I can’t even understand it, let alone help her in any way. I’m waiting to see what they do with fractions.

    I see what the problem is. The problem is that you guys are under the assumption that the goal of Common Core is to improve learning. Silly people. The goal of any policy advanced by the Left is as follows:

    1. Do things differently than the old folks (i.e. the conservatives) did because to continue doing it their way would be like saying the old folks were right, and this would deprive liberals of their feelings of superiority.

    2. Reinventing teaching methods guarantees more jobs for liberals. “Educators” (there’s no such thing as teachers any more) must be re-trained, and ideally this training should occur in places like Florida, San Diego and Hawaii, and of course we will need bigger administrations to manage everything, which of course means bigger salaries and it goes without saying that there should be bigger pensions. Also, don’t forget that the Department of Education will have to be expanded to as well so that they can study the results and reinvent the wheel yet again when they discover that our children are becoming even more stupid than they were before.

    See?

    Here are your answers as to why this is happening. It’s all part of the plan.

    Back in the ’60’s they came up with “New Math” which was probably pretty much the same thing.
    It was scrapped after a bunch of parents raised hell about it.

    I.R. has it nailed. All part of the plan. Good find, Terry.
