NY Parents Need TV Show to Explain Their Children’s Common Core Math
New York parents were so confused by their children’s new Common Core-aligned math homework that one New York TV station ran segments featuring teachers explaining the concepts.
The six “Homework Helper” segments showed parents how the new Common Core curriculum asks students to draw out problems, such as adding 9 + 5, before solving them.
Comedian Louis C.K. famously complained about his own children’s Common Core homework,tweeting, “My kids used to love math. Now it makes them cry.”
