it's common core mathAll the need is someone who can add up their numbers and see they don't compute........... buncha dumb fugs
Do NOT get me started on 5th grade math common core SH*Tit's common core math
Yeah, I don't think they even do that these days... I literally can't help my kid with math unless it's telling her whether the answer is right or wrong, every time I try to show her something she tells me its the wrong way.Ya don't even hafta carry to the next column.
Oh, it's far more complicated. They were being taught 3 ways to reach the same conclusion. Way's to reach different mindsets. Sounded okay in theory... But when an educated parent can't help with 2nd grade math... Because the one approach we we taught, is only one approach... We are all wrong. It's embarrassing. As a parent the " first teacher".At about 2nd grade level. There's only single digit numbers. Ya don't even hafta carry to the next column.
I taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade math. My BOSS was a language arts teacher and somehow they made her in charge of the math department (long story with a terrible ending). She would ASK ME how to solve problems.This is probably 2nd grade...I think I have PTSD from 5th grade math. I brought the worksheets to work with me and had math people with bachelors degrees try and figure it out, then they tried to teach me. Out of 100 kids in 5th grade, 80 of them required extra help each day. All 4 core teachers were helping before, during and after school. A few times I did his math for him using the old way and although it was 100% correct, only got a 50% because the process was wrong...but my process was correct and so was the answer. What a joke.

As the father of 2 little girls now. I am not looking forward to this at all... That whole subtraction thing looks like complete nonsense; what a joke!This is probably 2nd grade...I think I have PTSD from 5th grade math.
