Common core is easy. If you don't understand it, that means you never learned math. Common Core is suppose to teach how to solve it and why its that answer. Its essentially prepping kids for proofs. The people who hated are retards and there a lot of retarded engineers in the world.
>>7642649 I think the big issue with Common Core is that people see "Ebul Goverment trying to tell me how to do my job" and because of that they're completely ineffective at implementing what it calls for. Most of the issues people have with common core are due to shit teachers who refuse to learn it and are thus unable properly implement it.
>>7642664 Nope. That was the old system of doing math in your head. Mental math is a legacy of an era of no computers/calculators. They're trying to teach kids how to think. But like this anon said>>7642660 "Ebul Goverment trying to tell me how to do my job" Too many people think the government is telling them what to think. When in fact its the opposite. The current system of STEM education is memorization. Which is bad, because at the university level too many kids cannot think. They are weeded out by their second year. The market demands more American talent. But we have a generation of teachers who are horrible at math and, well, everything else. So like George Carlin once said: "Garbage in garbage out". Common core is fixing this error. Its essentially smart people rewriting education policy, instead of policy fags.
Why would I a thinking organism compelled by millions of years of evolution to procreate and form emotional bonds and relationships with my fellow human beings "care" more about a huge fucking space rock and its other organisms than my own evolutionary imperatives?
Even more to the point even if I did so why would I refrain from doing so if every other member of my species did not? So I could pat myself on the back?
Go take your proto religiosity somewhere else faggot.
>>7642686 I'm adding to my kids' education with tricks n tactics that they'll need to live. Being able to do math in your head is not just for making change at a shop till, it's for use in time and space management. Use of fuel over time, distance covered, how many units needed to do x amount of work etc any number of practical things use these skills. I hate meeting grownups who fumble around with basic tasks or just give up and hire someone because their heads are full of useless cheese. >mfw harvard business school graduate, ceo of his own company, looks like a cunt trying to do, well anything.
>>7642649 You can't teach common core though in an educational system where actual mathematical thinking is thrown out the window. We're taught by memorizing a set of instructions to get to a particular set of questions. So common core is completely bullshit if you're just gonna end up teaching them by saying >here's the formula to find the radius of a circle >find the radius of a circle with some arbitrary area
Well everyone, I just said fuck it and taught her how to multiply and divide by powers of 10.
The way they're teaching adding and subtracting is kind of dildos at this point, because for about a month now I've been looking at this homework thinking that learning multiplication and division would be way fucking easier.
