So this new video of an apparent teacher training session on Common Core math — in which the trainer explains how getting the wrong answer is right — will come as no surprise (via Stanley Kurtz):

This cartoon I posted back in 2007 still says it all about constructivist, “strategy”-obsessed, non-math math:blog comments powered by Disqus
