Common Core math hilariously explained in under two minutes – this was helpful!

Ohio mom Melissa Strzala posted a video on her Facebook page that will leave you laughing while giving you the understanding that the only people who benefit from Common Core math are the textbook publishers.

After taking a tutorial on the subject at her local library, she recorded and posted her findings on Facebook, which quickly went off-the-charts viral, and for good reason.

Her Yoda dry erase board is pretty nifty too!

I’ve been attending new math tutoring classes at the library so I can better help the kids I watch with their homework. I plan to share a video on Facebook every time I learn something that I feel will be beneficial to share with parents.

    The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.

    Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex. It takes a touch of
    genius – and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.
    – Physicist Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

    Be aware, today’s students learning Common Core are the teachers of the future!

    You conservative idiots are all doing math wrong. Here is the correct, progressive (socialist) way to do it.

    Phil Daro, the original Common Core math chair, has been an employee of a Pearson company for about 20 years, between textbooks and testing, Pearson may be the biggest beneficiary of the nationwide revamping of Math education.

    Daro has no degrees in mathematics and your local high schools would likely not hire anyone with his education (BA English, UC Berkeley) to teach math.

    His Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice is a retelling of the 1992 Mathematics Framework for California Public Schools. No significant difference, with even the misnamed College Preparatory Mathematics (CPM) claiming it’s texts are aligned with the Common Core with only content additions, going all the way back to 1989 when the NCTM (a math education 501c3) released their 1989 “Standards”, not of what math should be learned but rather a straightjacket for how it should be taught… inductively, with lots of group work and a minimum of practice.

    Phil Daro also directed the drafting of the ’92 California Framework.

    California math students began a downward path immediately upon the new programs being introduced but it took a few years for it to become obvious. Enjoy the ride.
