What is 2 x 6? In Common Core math, nobody is quite sure

EGADS, and I thought “new math” (kind of an oxymoron, but whatevah) was a mess…does anyone else remember the rote memorization of multiplication tables? The wonder of memorizing FACTS, ya know those things that never change…I wonder if all of this newism for unchanging things like… Oh, I don’t know MATH, is to make new educational textbook authors relevant. I wonder if they really believe they can improve on mathematics…SMH.
Here’s another thought, most people in Universities today wouldn’t know how to “critical think” if their lives depended on it their…they obediently, vomit back up & parrot the nonsense they are told by intelligentsia types, ya know the ones who came up with the Common Core twaddle. sheesh
