Fuzzy Math of Common Core: (3 x 4 = 11?)
Hat tip: iOwnTheWorld
Common Core Curriculum Director: "But even under the new common core if even if they said 3 * 4 was 11, if they were able to explain their reasoning and explain how they came up with their 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."
