I ...See, my husband actually understands this crap. I don't! I have NO IDEA how to solve a problem like that. I get the question of how the kid can use 6+4 to know the answer, but why can't we just teach them that 6+6=12 without major gymnastics?! Also, have you seen the articles of books required when they get older? We're going to raise a generation of kids who hate to read because it's just not fun.

I'm just waiting for it to come home. Fortunately, her teacher has told us that even though she has to teach some of these methods, if we want to reach her "old school" math at home, that's fine. They get the same answer. <br />Jana @ Jana Sayshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/15501814243709445827noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5910185897876102936.post-71605277429123586802015-01-15T11:30:22.137-07:002015-01-15T11:30:22.137-07:00Common core is by far the dumbest thing anyone has...Common core is by far the dumbest thing anyone has ever come up with!!!!!Semper Aghttps://www.blogger.com/profile/06405862710967982552noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5910185897876102936.post-82744340269039695922015-01-15T10:11:15.812-07:002015-01-15T10:11:15.812-07:00I've never heard of that 10 thing.

I was just complaining yesterday about how it took a math professor five minutes to explain how to solve a solution when it took me less than 5 seconds to solve it in my head. The way they want you to go about solving problems is so ridiculous!
