    My 1st grader got the same kind of question. It made no sense to the point where I couldn’t even help her understand what the worksheet was asking. Common Core has to go.

      First, if you’ll notice, the post is from October 2012…Common Core hadn’t even been implemented into any school curriculum until the 2013 – 2014 school year. For someone who hates Common Core so much, you have some more research to do.

    2. William Carr says:

      Common Core is a State-by-State set of standards, and has nothing to do with the Federal Government.

      It’s a mystery why people have started out hating it for no reason.

      But the theory I’m working on is that Tea Party folks got confused and thought it was a Federal standard.

      It’s a simple word problem, that teaches how to turn a sentence into a math equation.

      What is six more than 2+2 ?

      Answer: 6 plus 4 is 10.
