According to NBC Washington, this is one of the ridiculous ways Common Core teaches kids problem solving and critical thinking… with simple beyond reason math problems.
I found this image on Facebook and shared it and even asked my stepfather to take a look at it. An aerospace engineer (a career involving a heavy amount of calculus) could not figure out what was going on here. If you’re making math so hard that someone who studied his ass off in calculus classes can’t understand it, you’re making it too hard for kids. Burn Common Core to the fucking ground.

yes!!

I can’t even begin to understand why this new fangled way is necessary. Like…I’m so confused right now looking at this shit. Bish whet?

Fuck the American public education system. This shit is why out children don’t tank top 10 globally. This is why our children can’t get jobs.

It looks to me like they’re basically doing it so that you start with the number you’re subtracting, and you add numbers until you reach exactly the number you’re subtracting from, and then you add up all the numbers you had to add EXCEPT for the first one.
I don’t know if there’s a kind of system to how the numbers have to add up, but basically they’re taking one basic subtraction problem, and turning it into four addition problems. Subtraction is not that much more complicated than addition. This is stupid, and I hate that this is just going to teach more kids to go hate mathematics, which is a REALLY IMPORTANT SKILL.
