The new Common Core curriculum continues to confuse and flummox parents and children alike. Here’s the latest example of a math lesson for first-graders reportedly from Common Core. Can you figure it out?

Here’s a reader-friendly version:
common-core-example1

And the text:

Use the number bond to fill in the math story. Make a simple math drawing. Cross out from 10 ones or some ones to show what happens in the stories.

There were __ ants in the ant hill. __ of them are sleeping and __ of them are eating. 9 of the sleeping ants woke up. How many ants are not sleeping?

A “math story” and a “number bond”? And this is for a first grader.  Looks more like they’re learning how to doodle instead of how to add and subtract.
