**Can someone
credibly, sensibly, logically, and seriously explain to me the
intelligence behind teaching this "new way" of doing math???**

**It seems
obvious to me that there are way too many steps to figure out the answer.
You add up the number in the box to get the answer.
But wait, how do you or where do you get the numbers in which to manipulate?
The two original number are there because that's the problem but where do the
others come from?
And what if you pick the wrong ones?
Now wouldn't that mess up the whole process?
Too many steps and too many places to make a mistake.
In addition, (pun intended), it takes much longer than the tried and true "old
fashioned" method.
If I was a business owner, I would ban this method because of these issues. Hey
time is $Money$ **

**And this is
just subtraction!!! What about addition and division and multiplication???**

**In my opinion, it is obvious to
the most casual observer that this Common Core method is STUPID!!!**

**As I said earlier, can
someone credibly, sensibly, logically, and seriously explain to me the
intelligence behind teaching this "new way" of doing math???**

**Until then,
this method is STUPID and should be dumped!!!**

**Here's more
proof of stupidity!**

**The only logical answer is that
Juanita must know how many friends she has and the amount of stickers she
already has. We, being the readers, will NEVER determine the numerical
answer,
which is asked because we don't know the number amounts!!!**

**If the teacher giving this to
her class expects the kids to give the numerical answer, she should be fired.
Which is a good reason why they SHOULD have "Pay Per Performance"
clauses in their contracts.**

**As I've said in the past,
"There is no limit to the ignorance that one encounters on the surface of this planet.
When you
think you have found it, someone else proves you wrong"!!!**

**From these few examples, there
is no wondering why other countries are surpassing the US in math!**

**NOW THIS!!!!!**

**Just unbelievable, until you
see it!**

**You be the judge...so sad,
but probably to be expected...**

**AND MORE
"AGENDA" COMES TO LIGHT!!!
THIS WAS NOT EXPECTED BUT MUST BE DEALT WITH!!!
THIS IS JUST MORE MADNESS!!!**

**AHAH!!! THIS MUST BE THE ORIGIN OF THE
DYSFUNCTIONAL COMMON CORE!!!**

**Another look at "twisted math" and
the attitude around it, (tongue in cheek). In addition a perfect look at how the
media twists stories!**
