A mom whose child apparently attends school in New York City is not a fan of Common Core math. She recently posted a copy of this ridiculous math problem:
The Common Core standard that aligns to thisÂ question â CC.1.OA.6 â indicates that this convoluted problem is for first graders.
The mom who posted the problem, Amber Papadopoulos, previouslyÂ tweeted numerous politiciansÂ urging that New York withdraw fromÂ Common Core:
Papadopoulos is just the latest in a long line of parentsÂ to post ridiculous Common Core math problemÂ to Twitter. We recentlyÂ wrote aboutÂ a kid who missed a Common Core math problem because he didnât use âfriendlyâ numbers. In January, we noted a confusing Common Core problem that required firstÂ graders to use ânumber bondsâ to completeÂ a Â âmath story.â
Backlash to the Common Core standards has been growing around the country.Â Gov.Â Mike Pence, R-Ind., recently signed a lawÂ withdrawing his stateÂ fromÂ the program.
