Re: feelings about common core

I will talk some math with you if that is what you want.

Sounds and feels like a large load of kaboobly doo.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Some new initiative that will work even worse than the previous one.

Re: feelings about common core

I think it is a terrible way to promote the more "liberal arts type" education. It was the primary reason as to why I decided not to even apply to Chicago or Columbia.
