Moron Parents Ruining Education
I have had enough of the stupid shit said about Common Core. Now we have asswipes all up in arms about a basic math problem.
Common core requires elementary students to understand the proper mathematical definition of terms. For example with simple multiplication A x B = C, A is the multiplier and B is the multiplicand.
The issue? A student was marked wrong because they wrote 5x3 as being the equivalent of 5+5+5. The correct way to write is 3+3+3+3+3. The multiplicand is the number being multiplied.
Parents are up in arms because Common Core requires that students understand the proper use of mathematical terms.
