It took Sophia Abelita just under two minutes to demonstrate exactly why kids — and their parents — are so frustrated with Common Core math.
Attempting to solve a simple 3-digit arithmetic problem, Sophia first shows how students are expected to complete the problem using Common Core’s “base 10” method. It takes her a minute, twenty seconds. Then Sophia flipped her paper over and completed the same problem — in fifteen seconds!
Is it any wonder parents all over the country are demanding that schools ditch Common Core?
