Uncommonly Dumb

My fondness for Common Core math (which was never that strong to begin with) has ebbed to new lows as I watch Katie sobbing as she is trying to figure out why she is required to solve a problem using some stupid method when she knows how to get the right answer.

And I can confirm that she does know how to get the right answer, because I've checked. However, drawing little bar graphs is making her insane.

Which is making Gretchen and I insane.
