I gotcha. I thought it was funny Spongebob meme, so I posted it anyway.Just as an FYI, that has been debunked. There was a real memo to the city council that said the police were going to have to alter their tactics. The one that was supposedly sent to the residents never happened. Fake News.
Algebra at such young age huh. Wasn't actualy so uncommon in ancient times.
I remember algebra being waaay different.Algebra at such young age huh. Wasn't actualy so uncommon in ancient times.
My issue with that though is, the kid clearly hasn't been taught to think that way.
It kinda sorta is in a 10+x=8+5 way. x=3. Decomposed, you break down the 5 into 2 + 3. Add the 2 to the 8 and then the remaining 3. I think the teacher intended a logic exercise to stimulate more advanced thinking, but maybe a bit too complicated and advanced at such a young age. Dunno. I'm honestly mixed about it.I remember algebra being waaay different.
No that's just how they try and teach basic math now.It kinda sorta is in a 10+x=8+5 way. x=3. Decomposed, you break down the 5 into 2 + 3. Add the 2 to the 8 and then the remaining 3.

The problem doesn't NEED algebra though, that's the biggest problem with it. It's 8 plus 5, that's it. It's over-complicating the issue at hand for no valid purpose or utility.It kinda sorta is in a 10+x=8+5 way. x=3. Decomposed, you break down the 5 into 2 + 3.

Honestly, Common Core makes no sense to me. #Thanks ObamaIt kinda sorta is in a 10+x=8+5 way. x=3. Decomposed, you break down the 5 into 2 + 3. Add the 2 to the 8 and then the remaining 3.

I agree with you guys. Just trying to think of reasons why they would teach it that way. I think it was meant well, or at least not in malicious intent. But yeah.The problem doesn't NEED algebra though, that's the biggest problem with it. It's 8 plus 5, that's it. It's over-complicating the issue at hand for no valid purpose or utility.
