Response to NBC News on Common Core
October 31, 2014 04:07 AM PDT
The podcast usually focuses on current research findings but I would like to deviate for a moment to share a video response to the troubling NBC News story about the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.
The NBC video clip talks about convoluted Common Core approaches to "simple" math problems and describes parents and children struggling with these problems for hours. I made a YouTube video to try to correct at least some of the misinformation (and I did draw generally on past research in mathematics education).
Next week will feature a return to form with Episode 1420.Episode 1419: Sean Yee & Jonathan Bostic
