Joe’s got it. The student isn’t even supposed to actually solve for the answer (the total number of cars). Instead, the student is supposed to describe, in words, the equation that would need to be solved to come up with the answer i.e. “In this problem, in order to come up with the total number of cars, ‘Mike’ would add together the number of blue cars and the number of green cars that he saw”. This is utter tripe, and is why, if “Common Core” survives long enough, my daughter will go to a private school.
This new math is probably suggestive of George Sorros who wants to destroy America. The kid has talent on loan from God and that is a good thing.
The boy will probably be referred to the school psychologist and his parent’s guns taken away because he hears voices in his head that give him math answers!
The precursor to all this was 'estimating' answers, and our kids had trouble with that, "Why not just work the problem and get THE answer?" was the most often asked question.
Out of the mouths of babes...
“Mike is visually impaired and saw 0 cars”.
Typical Common Core illogical question. The fact that Mike saw 17 blue and 25 green cars give no information on the total number of cars he saw - just those of those colors.
Common Core is an attempt to outright kill education altogether. It seeks to actually break a child’s ability to think straight. It’s one of the most evil creations in the history of the human race, and every single person behind it should be jailed without parole for life, for crimes against humanity It is an absolute outrage, and a mind rape of every student it touches.
Exactly, they are going to graduate non-functional people from these schools
2. Can you add words together to come up with a sum?
brainless + parasite = democRAT voter
Does the Toy Store provide their employees with a health plan that provides contraceptives and abortion services? What type cars were included? Were there global warming causing SUVs? Were there any government subsidized electric cars? There is just not enough information to solve the problem.
He/she got the number sentence (17 + 25 = 42 - with the square around the 42).
“I do what the voices in my head tell me to.”
EXACTLY!!!! What the HELL does that sentence mean???? It’s ABSURD!!
“on my computer calculator I punched the 1 and 7 keys and then the + key and then the 2 and 5 keys what came up was 17+25=42 “
This problem by, its last requirement, puts the attention on the composer of the problem, and not the problem. What a bunch of narcissistic self absorbed nincompoops.
Just like Hollywood making movie after movie with attention given to moviemakers themselves and older artists with themes about growing old instead of writing about things the readers want to read.
The poor students are left scratching their heads wondering why the teacher wants an evaluation of their problem presentation.
I’ll givum an evaluation!
So, if he had written that “17 is the answer because I saw Lou Costello add that way 7 x 13 = 28. he would get an A for “creative thinking”?
This allows the dummies to feel good about themselves
I’m guessing a number sentence is an equation and what the problem is really asking the student to do is write 17+25=__
Formulating math equations from word problems is an essential skill, but in my opinion, a bit abstract for second graders.
The only public school officials who know about that are the ones who administer schools with a classical curriculum.
Common Core isn’t age appropriate. No wonder it drives the kids crazy.
