    My wife and I fight the common core BS every time our kids bring homework home. We both laughed at this, thank you.

    In the end, 2+2 will always be 4, and the square root of 100 will always be 10. It's the same math as before, just a way of having students look at a problem from another perspective. Teach them the way you learned it and then tell them to explore other ways. The problem with CC was its implementation and the fact that a lot of teachers don't understand the subject matter their teaching to any proficient degree and so they completely muddle the delivery of the content. And, don't worry about the tests. If your child made any progress by the end of the school year, then they'll be just fine the next. Of course, this is just my 2 cents and you can all think I'm full of it.
