Videos have been posted to help parents confused by their children’s Common Core homework this year.
Why do they need videos? Because NO ONE understands these nutty principles.
And watch as children are asked to explain subtraction using pictures:
Each morning, a local math teacher takes one simple homework question, and spends a few minutes explaining the methodology required to solve it. Each lesson takes a little over one minute for the teacher to explain.
But here’s the irony: the one-minute lessons are explaining long processes for simple problems like 9 plus 6 — math that took children a few seconds to solve before Common Core standards.
As American students fall behind in global rankings, I can’t imagine how these ridiculous standards are going to help.
