“That’s right, it’s absolutely true that Common Core does add steps, but I think that’s an improvement in a way, because it’s the way I do it in my head,” so it’s a way of learning to do math in your head?
The older experienced ones ignore them. The younger ones that don't know any better drink the kool aid.
Common core is still going to teach the old school way to add, but when they a talking about is common sense reasoning, that is "adding steps," they're talking about guiding kids to do common sense reasoning sooner. And yes, it's how many (intelligent) adults would do the simple arithmetic in their head (although self learned).
If I asked you what is 87 plus 65. Many people would think: Well 87 is 13 away from 100, and 65 minus 13 is 52, so the answer is 152.
I guess becasue
Common core is not indoctrination
Educational theory is easily the 2nd most intellectually dishonest profession behind economics.
So you see what the people administrating Common Core are doing? They are training children to be little activists to push for less civil liberties.
those kids at yale were pre-common core
