"C" the answer is always "C"
When in doubt, pick the longest one.
ummmmmm i think the correct answer is peanut butter but blue was close......... heres the way they teach it i guess ..... because the way its written i had no freaking clue what they were even asking so i had to look it up and heres the way they do it .... no way to teach math IMO..... so i guess the answer is C
For 13 - 9, think 9 and 1 more is 10, and 3 more is 13. That's 4 more. Or, start at 13 and subtract. Think 13 minus 3 is 10, then subtract 1 more to get 9. That's 4 less, so the answer is 4

Wouldn't it be just as easy to memorize the flash cards like people used to, Oh wait, some don't want to so now we have this new math

einstein The corect answer is what ever the student wants because it would be Politicaly incorrect to tell them they were wrong. Might hurt their feelings!

I used to notice this same thing with my kids math problems. It is like the sent the question writing offshore. The questions seem to be poorly worded and not very precise in what they are looking for as an answer.
Oh my God we need a headache symbol
Take a quiz of sample NY Common Core questions - Newsday. Try this one!
I have been working with young people teaching electrical and blueprint reading and figuring materials lists,also plumbing and reading rulers and calipers. If that is the math they are being taught,it explains alot!!

Try being the teacher that has to teach it.
Um, public education hasn't lost its way. Well the teachers haven't. Too bad politicians have found they can make money and are "legislating" how things should be done.
I'm an engineer , and feel I'm at the very least decent in mathematics, with that being said I get lost as heck with my gf's 12 year old sons math work.
I never know what the crap the questions are asking.
And IMO his basic math skills are very poor and I blame this style of teaching.
I tried to teach him core math skills and she got pissed at me because that's not how the school teaches it.
He's gonna be lost when he has to do real math....
Funny this comes up now.. The other night we were playing dominos with our 17 y/o granddaughter and her friend who's a senior in HS. When it came time to add up the left over dominos, I, as most of us would, added all of the dots on all of the dominos. I noticed that both of the girls were physically counting each dot on each tile... I asked them once "why don't you just add the numbers"? They said, "oh, this is just easier"..
We're doomed.
what ever happen to this math? 14-8=6
