Following this train of logic. It would only take Marie 5 minutes to saw a board into one piece.

O'Brien held up his left hand, its back towards Winston, with the thumb hidden and the four fingers extended. 'How many fingers am I holding up, Winston?'

Just her variation on this.

Holy shit, that's exactly what the point of Common Core is!

and she gets paid only 77% as much as a man who does it in 0 minutes! the outrage!

If it took her 10 minutes to cut once, it would take 20 to cut twice. The pieces are not part of the problem, the cuts are. This is stupid.

Feminists don't get fencepost problems :)

Holy shit, I had trouble with the concept of spans vs counts briefly in grade 1. I couldn't ever rationalize my thought process to my teacher. I think I can now. Might be too late.

10 minutes to cut a board? Marie needs to get some power tools.

[–] Paranoidroid 1 points 10 points (+11|-1) ago 

Marie needs to get back in the kitchen and make me a sammich.

Is this common core math? And a Communist teacher?

[–] solvire 2 points 11 points (+13|-2) ago 

Yeah I would have liked more context. The feminist remark was pointless.

When I saw this post previously, someone mentioned that the teacher was incompetent, the answer was correct in the answer key. That being said, common core is stupid for other reasons.

[–] xenoPsychologist 0 points 11 points (+11|-0) ago 

thats not right. making one cut took 10 minutes... two should be twice as long.

[–] omringduyk 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Well.. that also depends on how long the second cut is, if it's the same length then it should take double as long. but even then there is less wood for grip and that might cause it to take longer.

The whole premise is dumb as shit to start with.

Why white people don't want nigga mamas teaching their kids.

[–] Rellik88 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Wait so following this common core crap. Two pieces took 10 minutes, so each board piece took 5 minutes? So three pieces equal 5 minutes each? But it took 10 minutes for 1 cut thus 20 minutes for two cuts?????

So homeschooling my kids, fuck this shit.

It doesn't say how big the new peice is. She could do it in 10 seconds. Or a few hours if she makes a spiral cut.
