4th Grade Common Core Math Problem Takes 108 Steps to Complete

If your child got the answer in two steps, he’d be counted wrong.

This would be kinda funny if it wasn’t so damn sad (or real life).

Check out this video of mother-of-three Karen Lamoreaux, member of Arkansas Against Common Core, completely owning the ridiculous educational failure that is the Common Core State Standards in her testimony before the Arkansas Board of Education on Monday.

“After listening to what was said this morning, I have come to the conclusion that this board is clearly as uninformed as the parents were when these standards were adopted.”

Oooh burn.

Too bad the board cut Lamoreaux off after only four minutes. She didn’t even get a chance to mention the privacy and testing concerns she had. Then again, to list all the concerns she probably actually has about Common Core wouldn’t have taken a mere session; it might have easily taken all day (or week… or month… or…).

Dumbing kids down is absolutely right. Apparently if you just know how to do simple math because it’s, well… simple, under Common Core, your answer would still be counted wrong because you didn’t do it in some convoluted, idiotic way that basically renders doing the math entirely pointless by the time you’re finished anyway. A simple 4th grade division problem regarding 18 students counting off to 90 takes an absurd 108 steps to get “right” via Common Core?

These are the “rigorous” standards that will make our children “college-ready”? Wha…? Did the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland write these standards when he was smoking crack?

Wooooow. No wonder New York principals are reporting deep concern over the fact that their elementary school students are becoming so upset during Common Core testing, they are literally throwing up and soiling themselves. That’d make me want to puke, too.

And then there’s the fact that this generation will be running society pretty soon…

  1. Hey guy….I was reading you forum and searching as a replacement for something absolutely stimulating in divers aspects after my operation attempt, and I was deep down on cloud nine of a tall reckon of questions with answers here. I pooped a raffle of opportunity reading this forum, and wrote an excellent installation attempt http://writingessays.top. Credit you guys

  2. Maths is a very tough subject for most of the people and this post will be a great relief. It describes the tips to complete the math problem.

  3. To solve mathematical problem by using simple steps. This is the beat approach to make mathematics easier. This is a very informative video. I have got some problem solving ideas from best essay writing service reviews.

  4. Common core isn’t that bad, it’s definitely better than what we use to have in a lot of ways.

    Memorizing multiplication tables is a terrible way to learn what multiplication is.

    These parents should talk to someone to who does research on education.

  5. Now this is absurd. For a simple division question maximum number of steps that need to be done will be 3 or 4. But to go through 108 steps for a simple elementary level division question, now this is what we define as stupid. Parents are right in their concern as it stresses their children. This all happened due to those absurd rules and for this purpose, essay writing services can be of help to you.

  6. I like your style. Thanks for this wonderful images.
