Proof Common Core Is Killing Common Sense

Accelerating the deliberate dumbing down of America…

My brain hurts enough just reading news stories about common core, so I know it can’t be good for the kids who are mercilessly subjected to it firsthand.

Proof Common Core Is Killing Common Sense

In this assignment, seven-year-old kids in 2nd grade were told that they were wrong if they simply subtracted one number from another to find the correct answer. That’s apparently not considered the “friendly” way to do math. Instead, they were told to add numbers to each number first, then subtract *those* numbers to get the right answer.

Anyone else feel an aneurysm coming on…?

“What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”

    I think that Common Core is BAD but in this case, that’s not so.
    If you want to do that problem in your head, it’s easier to add 30 to both numbers so you’re taking 300 from 560, which is 260.
    If you want to take 29 from something, take 30 away and “give one back” is what I had my students do, which is essentially the same thing.

    The 5 idiots who designed common core don’t apparently understand math. Looks like we’re doomed if we let this go on.
    The correct answer is still correct despite how the student arrives at the answer.
    Time wasting buffoonery that offers nothing to the critically thinking mind, but I suppose that’s the goal isn’t it? #DumbAmurika
