    Common Core Mathematics

    What is your opinion on Common Core mathematics? Donald Trump promised to do away with Common Core and bring back the former methods of teaching mathematics in the classroom. What is your view?

    Re: Common Core Mathematics

    my view is that

    $P[\text{Trump says }\neg x \text{ today |Trump said }x \text{ yesterday}] \approx 1$

    I'm just a dumb engineer w/o kids. I really have no view of Common Core math.

    From what I understand the goal is to teach kids a deeper understanding of the basics such as multiplication and division.

    The algorithms and drawings I've seen are absurd but those are anecdotal and probably chosen as examples for their absurdity.

    I think the deeper problem is that the leaders of certain parts of this country don't have much interested in kids learning.

    Educated people are harder to lie to.

    I believe the goal of the government is to control the population, an ignorant society that can easily be manipulated if nobody knows anything.
