lmao.gif My classmate told me just the other night that his brother passed an exam doing exactly like that. He started each answer with some real info, then adding random text. He also passed the exam with good grades. damned.gif

Actually, the student's first paragraph was a really good analogy. Good job. chuckle.gif

Common Core Education. gaah.gif

I read another article about crap like this earlier today

This Common Core math problem asks kids to write the ‘friendly’ answer, instead of the correct one!

Considering young people these days were not taught cursive writing (but it's being brought back now) I think the A was deserved. chuckle.gif

Quote:The teacher wanted the student to solve “530 – 270 = ?” in the following manner: First, add 30 to both numbers, changing the problem to “560 – 300 = ?”. These numbers are the “friendly” numbers, because they are supposedly easier to work with.

The student, however, simply subtracted 270 from 530 the good old-fashioned way, arriving at the same answer. Unfortunately, this is not a Common Core-approved technique.

Yeah, obfuscate everything as much as you can as a teacher, that way, what little if anything that used to be learned can be thrown out. We need friendly numbers so that... wonder.gif Can someone tell me again why we need friendly numbers?
Why put an extra step in an equation for unicorns? Who came up with this shït, Microshaft? The windows 8 philosophy, it worked too well, people understand it, lets break it and call it a day.
