Today's Common Core Failure 
22nd-Mar-2016 09:51 pm
On Katie's math worksheet for today, we find the following assignment:

Write a math problem that uses the word time interval.

The question for you: what is wrong with this question?

While the grammar is wrong the practice is good. Having students develop math problems helps them understand how to apply math to their life.

I would agree that the idea is a good one. I'm just getting tired of things that haven't been proofed properly, let alone tried out on actual students.

Katie had a math sheet a few months back that started out with an example (as they tend to do) showing a square that was 10 cm on a side that had an area of 100 square inches.

Um, excuse me?

Fair, I've just seen common core getting a lot of flack, and at least on math it's pretty solid. I can't speak to the producer of the worksheets.
