10 seasons, 214 episodes and a whole lot of heartbreak later,
We finally made it.
Welcome to season 10.
ARE A HAZARD TO YOURSELF AND OTHERS
My Sims moved to a new house in a neighborhood without roads. They ran across a vast distance to get there. It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a little moving day enthusiasm!
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.
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.
Why should you do this confusing bullshit when the ‘old’ way is easier and FASTER?
This can’t even be real what the actual fuck is this shit?
what the hell
Am…am I the only person who this makes sense to?
This is like writing down how math works in my head for me. /shrug
explain this beriani
I think it’s trying to work in chunks - and that is much more applicable for mental maths, and can be really useful there. So, like, you find the nearest thing you can easily count in.
Say you wanted to find the difference between 27 and 63; you can say ‘well, 3 takes me to 30, and 30 more will make 60, and 3 more will make 63, and that adds up to 36’ - and that may well be easier for kids to learn than trying to carry numbers, at least for lower-level numbers. And it’s, as mentioned, a useful mental maths strategy.
I can see it working well with low-level maths, but I’m not sure how well it would work with higher-level shit; but as a way to teach kids intuitively how subtraction works and what it does, I can see it being useful.
when i was in primary school, i remember the moment my brain clicked and found out that strategy on his own, and i felt very smart (yes i had low expectations i guess)
but seriously, if they tried to explain it to me in this shitty way before i got there on my own i would have cried and killed someone
What the actual fuck is going on?
