Common Core Math

Published: September 22, 2015

Common Core Math, A Painesville, Ohio father showed his distaste for complicated math problem solving skills taught under Common Core standards by writing a check that no bank could possibly cash.

Over at Buzzfeed, the site shows a picture of a check the man used to pay Melridge Elementary is filled out using his kid’s fourth grade longform math strategy

Instead of a dollar amount, a cryptic series of X’s and O’s accompany eight boxes with more O’s indicating the amount of the check.

Your guess is as good as ours as to how much Douglas intended to write. Maybe you should ask a fourth grader.
