    An answer to a math problem is useless if you don't understand the problem or the answer. We've been teaching people to do arithmetic in a vacuum, but nothing in the world works that way. We're teaching kids to do math but not teaching them to apply any of it.

    I wonder and I'm just going to ask if anyone on the Debate Politics Forum agrees with Glenn Beck when he says that Common Core is "breeding an entire new generation of slaves'?

    If anyone agrees with Beck, and if Florida Rep Van Zant is correct they'll be homosexual slaves, eh?
    I think we need standards and the Common Core is a framework. What I don't like is how the standards are being used on high stake test as if all students can reach the same level at the same time which completely ignores the fact a bell curve exist. Just a fact. Some in the education field are grounded in reality. They give entry points for kids that are on IEPs but the only time you can use them is if the child is taking an ALT test which if very rare. Otherwise, they all take the same test and are expected to be proficient on grade level standards 5 months into the school year (they are tested the first week in March for ELA in MA). It's ridiculous.

    I don't think this is true. I learned how to apply those basic math principles I leaned in elementary school later in middle and high school, and then more in NNPTC. Plus, many children who learned math prior to CC were learning at least basic applications of those principles in some way or another. It just wasn't standardized or absolutely required in the classroom. It was more of just part of the majority of teachers' own plans.

    Many people have issues with fractions and the best way to teach that is to apply it to something like pie or pizza slices or money. I don't know anyone who didn't learn at least some math concepts and why math works the way it does and how to apply it sometime during their childhood. It was just informal.

    Gonna keep that line eh? With all the evidence that goes to show how utterly stupid the methods are, how unnecessarily time consuming, how it will move education in the US backwards rather than forwards.

    Thanks for not watching the videos where you would have to confront some of these realities.

    Common core has major issues. My daughter is having to go through this garbage and some of the work that she brings home is just badly written. Not that i can't figure it out but it takes a while to understand what they are trying to get at because it doesn't explain itself very well and the instructions are not clear.

    It would flunk any kind of comprehension test.
    as for his guy? open mouth insert foot.
    of course the only homework she brings home is spelling words and math that is it.

    of course she gets graded on other work that she doesn't even bring home so i have no idea how she is even doing.
