The controversial Common Core education initiative touted by the Obama administration continues to confound parents as well as students.
According to a report by The Daily Caller, one North Carolina father with a Ph.D. was thoroughly stumped by this Common Core math worksheet brought home by his five-year-old son:
“I have a Ph.D., and I have no idea what is supposed to be done with this homework assignment,” said the man, who wished to remain anonymous.
When the doctor spotted the “K.OA.1.” towards the top of the worksheet, he recognized the assignment as part of the Common Core curriculum for kindergarten math.
This is certainly not the first time that problems with the Common Core math curriculum have been exposed. Another Daily Caller article points out one Common Core math assignment that attacked Ronald Reagan and referred to Abraham Lincoln’s religion as “liberal.”
In a recent piece by Campus Reform, students at George Mason University were thrown for a loop by a Common Core math problem that is indicative of math lessons taught in elementary school classrooms.
