Common Core Math: Wrong Answers are OK?

By on July 22, 2013 in Why Fight? with 2 Comments

Champion News has a video from a Common Core Math presentation from Community Consolidated School District 46 in Lake County, IL.

But even under the new common core if even if they said 3 x 4 was 11, if they were able to explain their reasoning and explain how they came up with there answer. Really in words and oral explanation and they showed it in a picture but they just got the final answer wrong. We’re more focused on the how and the why.

This is unreal.

    Why was the video stopped? I would have liked to heard the response from teachers and their reaction to its okay to get a wrong answer as long as you were on the right track? Just curious!

      Probably to keep it short. I’m not the one who did the video.
