>>

I know you're all trolling...

..but in case not, math teacher here. And a parent.

My 6693 - 2573 is a completely different problem from 2002 - 1997. Kids need to learn how to deal with both efficiently. The method you'd use for the first is stupid for the second. Vice versa.

My 5 year old did 15 + 7 in her head - quickly - the other day by realizing that 7 is just 5+2. Most kids that age would have to use their fingers.

>>

>>702915967

You retards seriously can't understand that? Have you never added by parts in your head before?

Like 13+26. Mentally, you add the 6 to 13 first to have 19, then add the remaining 20 to have 39.

You're just breaking the number up so its easier.

>>702916070

>Teached

Taught, my European simpleton. Taught.

>>

>>702916314

That being said, the worksheet is stupid. The things I just described don't really fit that problem. Don't blame common core and alternative problem solving strategies whenever you see a shitty worksheet.

And keep in mind most adults (including teachers) suck at basic math. So they have no idea what they're talking about...

...but that doesn't mean Common Core is bad. Just idiots implementing it.

>>

The idea in OP's pic was twofold

Firstly, it supposedly helps students "make sense" of numbers by illustrating how numbers can be broken up and rearranged to get the same sum

Secondly, its supposed to simplify adding my making 10, which is an easy number to work with

In practice however, this system is retarded as fuck. It moderately helps the high level kids but completely fucks over mid and low level kids.

Good news however is that this system failed so spectacularly that its being phased out now and will be gone completely in another two years or so

>>

>>

>>702916276

Me too.

I think thats the idea. Trying to teach kids to do this. But i dont think its the right way..

>>

The concept can be useful for something more complex. Like... X*9 = 10X-X

1234321*9=12343210-1234321 is much faster than long multiplication.

But using this to add 7 and 7 is fucked.

>>

What kind've dumb fucking shit is this?

Yes, we all number substitute in our head. This isn't meant to be something you're fucking taught, you should pick it up and start doing it naturally once you have a basic understanding.

I can't imagine how utterly useless i would be at shit if i wasn't allowed to learn this basic shit naturally, useless hand holding shit.

Also that sheet better be for fucking very young kids, i was a retard at maths when younger and even i would've had no problem with 7+7

>>

>>702915967

That instruction sentence is fucking retarded. Why the hell would you explain such a simple concept in such a difficult manner?

>>

>>702916577

yes! i am first! you can't even solve so easy problem

>>

>>702915967

sorry OP, I can't add numbers. I can only add soccer balls, fans, clocks, and colored shapes.

>>

>>702917032

that sheets probably geared towards kindergarten or first grade, but its currently no different for older kids, just more complicated numbers to work with.

the idea is that while most people do number substitutions in their heads, its not conscious. By being aware of it, kids supposedly become better at math.

In practice though this failed as badly as napoleon did in russia

>>

>>702916426

I think the complaint was about how arkward and needlessly complicated the question was worded.

It should just have read 'Break up the numbers in a way that makes addition easier' or whatever.

>>

>>702915967

7+7 = 7+(3+4) = (7+3)+4 = 10+4 = 14

>>

>>702917716

You think that way now because you're past the point of learning how to think like that. The kiddos need to learn how to think like that.

>>

>>702917032

> kind've

No, not all people do this in their head - that's the problem. Educators noticed that a large number of students were not understanding how math works, they were just memorizing well enough to pass and move on. They didn't just complicate math for the hell of it, they did it to make sure all students were forced to learn math rather than memorize.

>>

I like they too. It's so intresting. They can be red, green or yellow. But most of all I like green.

>>

>>702917793

Did you even fucking read the question?

This isn't some complicated concept. The question makes the little trick of adding towards tens appear like rocket science.

You a teacher? Until you've taught kids, you have no idea.

Things that shouldn't have to be taught: how to type a letter on a keyboard.

Things I've spent all fucking week teaching: how to type a letter on a keyboard.

I certainly didn't intend to teach it, but some kids have no clue, growing up with touchscreens. I thought it would be common sense... nope.

import java.util.*;

public class HelloWorld3 {

public static void main(String args[]) {

Scanner Console = new Scanner(System.in);

System.out.println("Hello World");

String Hello = Console.next(); //Reads User input

if (Hello.equals("Hey")) // Begins if statement

System.out.println("What is my purpose?"); // if statement ends

String Hello2 = Console.next();

if (Hello2.equals("butter"))

System.out.println(":(");

}

}

So this works fine, but if I change if (Hello2.equals("butter")) to (Hello2.equals("You pass me butter")) it stops working. What do I need to add?

>>

>>702918330

That's my fucking point. It absolutely doesn't have to be. Word the question differently and it's as intuitive as fucking walking.

'number bounds', 'skip count'.

What do these words accomplish?

Just show someone how to add towards tens and how it makes the subsequent addition easier.

>>702915967

That's actually how I do math tho. Always habe, they didn't teach it I just figured it out. Like say I the equation was 7+5, it was always fast for me to add the three then the two together to get twelve then just memorize the answer. But my brain works different because I had the umbilical cord wrapped around my neck three times. I'm not retarded or anything, just certain things I have to do differently. The way I add is different, but for some reason I subtract like everyone else. And I learned a different way to tie things, like my shoes. I am kind of depressed to know tho that common core is the way I do math, because for most people it's just more complicated it's not easier

Common core is not that bad, it's just more of a logical approach to math rather than just saying "know how to add"

If you can't understand it and it upsets you, seek help; chances are you're retarded and autistic

>>

>>702919048

Do you not get what I'm saying? Like at all?

Instead of making it more intuitive for children, this stuff is actually obscuring a natural and logical way towards the problem.

Math may not be intuitive for everyone, but shit like this is making it even more unintuitive than it needs to be.

For me it's more like I just solve the right column first and put down my answer and then the left column next and put down my answer. Sort of like how I was taught in school before math was declared racist and common core was invented.

26 6+3=9

____

9

26 2+1=3

39

After reading this thread I feel better about this, apparently this is common for people to do, and I've told people I work with about it but they act like I'm strange and say it's to complicated.

>>702919390

if (Hello2.equals("You pass me butter"))

Isn't You pass me butter a perfect match to this?

But it doesn't work, program just ends there. If I don't put in any spaces, like change make it just equals(butter) and just type butter, then it works again.

>>

Wasn't taught common core but this is already kind of how I do things like that.

For something like 7+6, I'd add 3 to 7 making 10, then add the remaining 3 to 10 to make 13.

Sounds stupid when written out, but it's what I think a lot of people do quickly in their head without thinking about it.

Nigger. Listen here.

6/6 of a pizza equals a pizza that has 6 slices.

Marty and Luis go to a pizza shop. They don't like the same toppings so they decide to order two separate pizzas.

Each pizza comes with six slices.

Marty ate 4 slices of his pizza.

Luis ate 5 slices of his pizza.

How in the fuck can Marty have eaten more pizza than Luis? HE CAN'T, FUCK STICK! The question is a charade to make sure that kids understand fractions. What's sad is you guys think this kid saying "hurrr well I guess Marty got a bigger pizza because I can't into fractions durrr" is somehow profound.

Trust me, I hate common core. But this picture has no context and you're reading something into it, trolling, or you're just as bad at basic math as this kid who got question number 8 wrong.

whoa, do not call him a simpleton. he is ignorant sir, I am a simpleton

>>702920454

Lets put it simple for you. Marty orders a 24' pizza and Luis orders a 16 inch pizza. Marty's slices are 4 inches each and Luis' are 2.666 inches each.

Marty eats a total of 16 inches, which is the size of Luis' pizza. So Marty eats more.

>>

>>702920454

It states "Marty are more pizza than Luis" which is a known fact. It did not say how can Marty have eaten more pizza than Luis. Yes the fraction 5/6 is larger than 4/6 but that is not what they are asking

>>

>>702920454

No dude, you're wrong. The problem states that Marty ate MORE pizza and HOW is that possible.

The only way to eat more pizza despite a smaller fraction is to have eaten more surface area. Therefore he has to have a large pizza, while Luis ate a small pizza.

5/6 of a small pizza - while fractionally larger, is less pizza than 4/6 of a large pizza.

The kid was correct.

>>

>>702920921

No where did it say that both pizzas where the same size. It wasn't a trick question, it was a bad question.

Here's all you need to know about Common Core.

It was co-written by some tool named "pook" who admitted they did common core to end "white privilege"

http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2015/03/teacher_admits_he_wrote_common_core_to_end_white_privilege_.html

He teaches at a school that doesn't teach common core because they don't allow it.

So how fucked is that?

>>

>>702919989

no it didn't

stop lying

>>

>>702921155

To add, he teaches at a private school that costs over $30k a year. No common core there where he teaches.

Again, fine for you poor white folk, but not for the rich kids. You poor white folks can slum with the blacks I guess.

>>

>>702915967

I've seen this before and was rather confused about it. But when I think about it, I do it, too.

When adding numbers I just subtract from one, and add to the other to make the nearest 10.

So in this case you make 10 and are left with 4 so you end up with 14.

Just makes for easy counting in your head.

God damn are you retarded or something?

The question is asking what is 7+7=?

It is proposing that one way to solve this is by finding the "number bonds" AKA 3+4 (which equals 7 for you retards)

Then use these number bonds to easily add 7+7 by adding 7+3 to get 10, then adding 10+4=14 which gives you the answer to 7+7=14

God damn how can you guys be so dense?

ITT trolls don't understand Common Core math while small children do.

They might be attempting to phase out Common Core wherever the anon who said they were lives, but at STEM schools around Chicago they seem to be keeping it.

Common Core math emulates the number structures of other cultures- namely Asian ones- who count like so: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-10+1-10+2-10+3...

Most European counting systems go: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14...

The European counting system makes rapid number processing more difficult, because it doesn't inherently clump numbers into tens, which is useful since we use a base-10 mathematical system. It's the reason Asians are better than us at math, or so they say.

References- I am an undergraduate education major who just finished 80 hours of observation in a STEM 4th grade class in the Chicago burbs.

I just barely passed until HS because there was actually a good math teacher. He asked me why I wasn't showing any work, and I told him. He'd ask me every once in a while on a new subject how I got an answer, and after I explained it he was okay with it. He was chill as fuck and the only reason I passed most of HS honestly.

Sidenote, I went to school in Texas, which doesn't have this common core garbage. It probably wouldn't be confusing if I was taught it or learned it myself, but I already know how to do math. No need in re-learning it in a completely roundabout way without a teacher.

Yeah. I'm missing something too.

The problem is with how ridiculously convoluted the question is.

Adding towards tens is a pretty intuitive concept for most people. But the question uses so much unnessary vocabulary and is just so awkwardly worded, it would confuse the average student more than teach him something.

>>

>>702915967

It's teaching kids how to do math in their heads because their parents are too shitty to have taught them already.

>>

>>702921795

Bragging about skills and not showing proof as you talk is deplorable anon.

Have some pride.

>>702921795

>proud of you're self..

People missing the very obvious bait.

German uses addition in counting and French uses multiplication and addition

Time for me to find a pen and paper to post better maths.

This is the correct analysis. Since Marty ate less, fraction-wise, but the question asserts he ate more pizza, the only way that is possible is if the pizza was larger, so he literally ate more by area.

It implies he does indeed understand fractions. And lateral thinking that would do a Mensa member proud.

Now if this question was in a section where he was supposed to determine true or false, then he got the answer wrong. But that would be the teacher's fault if he didn't know that.

>>702915967

isnt this what learning your times tables is for? They still teach that right?

7x2 is 14, x3 is 21, x 4 is 28.....

>>

>>702916314

Shit that's what that pic was trying to say? I learned that by myself without common core. What else do they teach, that any number times 9 is just that number times 10 minus itself?

>>

>>702923370

Sure, the wording doesn't make any sense because you have not been taught what they mean.

But, seeing as the children who have been learning this have probably been taught what these words mean. This should be a nonissue.

I mean, I was able to just self-intuit what they meant by reading the question and I don't know the first thing about Common Core.

Number bonds: a group of numbers that add up to another number. 3+4 in this case

skip-count: Using the number bonds to count larger amounts than 1. So instead of saying what's 7+7? then counting from 7 to 14 one by one you skip some numbers.

The wording outside of those is pretty horrendous though

>"skip-count by seven by making ten or adding to the ones"

Even knowing what skip-count means that sentence is fucking retarded. I can agree on that, but that isn't the fault of common core. That's just someone who is illiterate and can't form a basic sentence.

>>702923912

Forgot your tens and hundreds

400+200+24=624

>>

>>702916314

Wait. the fuck? 5th graders in the US need fingers to count 15+7? We did that shit in the first grade.

>>

>>702923912

Green x light blue is 10x10 each time

>>

>>702922929

My teachers always thought I was cheating. They'd ask why I didn't show my work, I'd say I did it in my head, they'd make me do it in front of them. Ironically all the other students were cheating off of me haha

>>

>>702924617

5 year old not 5th grader you fucking mong

>>

>>702923912

Dark blue x green (10x1)8=80

Light blue x black (10x1)12=120

120+80=200

>>

>>702915967

Day tell'n yo to skip count all up in da place nigga! Wat the fuck is wrong wit yo? It easy Seben plus seben be forteen, but yo can also be gett'n dare by by seben plus tree den four dat be forteen also. White boy.

>>

>>702915967

>doesnt understand basic maths

Shouldn't you be in school right now?

>>

So if I'm reading this correctly what one does in there head would be

7+7=?

Then you split a 7 so now its

7+3+4=?

And then just make a ten to make it easy?

10+4=14

I always did this shit in my head but is that what's being taught here?

>>

>>702924440

>>702924646

>>702924943

Fucking hell.

> am retard now

>>

>>702920285

>>702918494

it's just the visualization of (a+b)*(c+d) = ac + ad + bc +bd

what you're seeing here is just that 13*12 = 10*10 + 10*2 + 3*10 + 3*2

>>

>>702923353

actually this one helped it make sense to me, the first (from left) is hundreds, second is 10s, third is ones.

>>

Is this the average common-core detractor?

Cause this seems like basic math shit

>>

I have 2 friends who in administrations in schools.

One is a Principal, the other is a Vice Principal.

They both hate but like the Common Core. They taught me Common Core in 5 minutes. It's basically how ANY decently smart person does when they need to do math in their head.

You break down numbers/ equations to simpler steps... even if it means alot MORE steps

This method would have been great to start teaching kids back in the 50s when they were counting using dun dials or whatever they did back when faggots did what they were supposed to do and hide.

But we now have phones in our pockets that are thousands of times more powerful than any computer they had back in those days.

USA's math would jump a 100 fold if we just accepted calculators after elementary school.

>>

>>702925463

Yep, just tried another looking at it like that and boom!

>>

>>702916440

The irony behind this is we say "taught" in Europe whilst the US is the kind to used the "-ed" suffix.

Learned is a perfect example. It's learnt you spastics.

>>702925463

>>702925920

Forgot pic.

Btw thanks to all the Anons in this thread for helping me learn something new!!

>>

>>702925897

Oh shut up, every human being should be able to do basic addition and substraction in their head, even with a calculator in your pocket.

If you don't have at least a tiny smidge of intuition when it comes to mathematics, then a calculator won't help you one bit.

>>

>>702926469

*sigh*

> after elementary school

which is wear you do you bulk of ur additional subtraction, multiplication, and division.

I'm glad you're big on math, but evidently your reading comprehension is for shit

>>702924855

I actually slept through my senior year of math when since Mr. R taught Seniors, too. I would do enough work to know I knew how to do it and then copy of of the other people to get my work done. It would've taken me too much time since I was too late to check out a Calculator because my school only had a limited amount. One day this bitch who tried to cheat on my best friend with me decided to keep me from copying because "I'm too dumb and don't deserve to pass." Asked Mr. R for the weeks work and got it done in that hour, with like 6 sheets of paper filled with work. Can do anything without graphing calculators except the super complicated graphs.

Fun part is she tried to get him to fail me by saying I was looking up the answers, even with my pages of work. He laughed.

Freshman year I only did half of my final, but since I got everything I did right he gave me 100 anyway.

>>

>>702915967

thats pretty funny, and dumb

>>

>>702927017

Yes, fucking well after elemantary school you still should not overuse calculators.

I know exactly where it ends.

Kids typing in 13+8 into their calculators because it's just their first instinct. They don't even look at the prbolem before taking out their calculator.

You can't do advanced math without understanding how numbers work and what terms represent. A calculator takes that understanding away from you.
