This second grader’s revenge against Common Core math will make your day

common core

Yahoo: The litany of frighteningly stupid Common Core math worksheets never ends. Perhaps now, though, kids are starting to fight back in satisfyingly creative ways.

An alert reader sent The Daily Caller this image of her seven-year-old son’s perfectly reasonable homework answer. The boy attends a public elementary school in San Jose, Calif. He is in the second grade.

The math curriculum used by the school is GO Math! The publisher of GO Math! is produced by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

The parent who sent the homework question to TheDC noted that the curriculum aligns with the Common Core math standards. “If you look closely under the math question, you will be able to see the Common Core standards in a blue-colored print that aligns to that particular question,” she explained.

The constantly burgeoning inventory of sad and hideous Common Core math problems is very long.

Just this month, for example, a frustrated dad posted his kid’s absurd Common Core-aligned math homework on Instagram.

In February, a group of Common Core-aligned math — math — lessons oozed out of the woodwork which require teachers to ask students if the 2000 presidential election was fair and which refer to Lincoln’s religion as either “liberal” or nothing.

In January, The Daily Caller also brought you a surreal, subtly cruel Common Core math worksheet. (RELATED: This Common Core math worksheet offers a glimpse into Kafkaesque third-grade hell)

January also brought a set of incomprehensible directions for nine-year-olds. (RELATED: Here’s another impossibly stupid Common Core math worksheet)

In December, Twitchy found the most egregiously awful math problem the Common Core had produced yet until that point. (RELATED: Is this Common Core math question the worst math question in human history?)

Over the summer, The Daily Caller exposed a video showing a curriculum coordinator in suburban Chicago perkily explaining that Common Core allows students to be totally right if they say 3 x 4 = 11 as long as they spout something about the necessarily faulty reasoning they used to get to that wrong answer.

“Common Core allows students to be totally right if they say 3 x 4 = 11 as long as they spout something about the necessarily faulty reasoning they used to get to that wrong answer.”

I knew this was coming. The Left relativist worldview has now gone from moral relativism to mathematical relativism. There is no TRUTH. Do as you will.

Can you imagine the cars that might be designed by Common Core grads? Is this proof that America is being influenced by space aliens from the Planet Stupiter?

Good for this child!!!!! This is not exactly Math made simple is it? I never saw anything so convoluted and unecessary in my entire life,. and I’m 69. I grew up with the old math way, which was simple and straight forward. I believe those who wrote this are brain damaged

🙂 Thank God for the innocence and truthfulness of the very young….maybe this is the ONLY thing that keeps us going back to center every once in a while after all those forays into “the next big thing.” (Code words for: someone always makes a lot of money writing/selling textbooks & training seminars for the “next big thing…..and then the NEXT big thing….and so on.”)

You guys don’t get it! You people are soooo out of touch with reality it is sad! Common Core aligns with Hard Core. The government these days is filled with WHORES and CROOKS, so, math must align. Whores must be paid and the crooks get away with murder. Enter common core! How does it work? Simple: “Common Core allows students to be totally right if they say 3 x 4 = 11 as long as they spout something about the necessarily faulty reasoning they used to get to that wrong answer.” The key here is “as long as they spout… Read more »
