#CommonCore This is how the Government gets the unemployment rate.

What. The. Fuck. Is. This. Shit.

what “progressive” education in america is turning into.

THE FUCK’S THIS SHIT

what the hell is that supposed to even mean? I had to read over the explanation twice, and I’m taking algebra 2.

"It doesn’t matter how you get the answer so long as it’s right" ~Every Math teacher I’ve had in collage.

You can cut the five up in to 2 and 3 to make it easier to process mentally but it ultimately equals 13. You cannot get 10 as an answer for 8+5. That’s not how math works. I read over that answer and the question five times now and I am still confused as to what you’re even expected to find as the answer because it sure as hell can’t be 10.

This is stupid and that teacher is an asshole. What a condescending correction that is incorrect anyway. The only way you can plausibly make 10 by adding 8+5 is with the base 13 number system, not this bullshit conceptual math.
