One of the questions was; what does 2+2 equal? The child’s answer was 5.
Their were several other math problems with the WRONG answer.
The mom was very concerned with her daughters explanations of how 2+2=5 could be correct. Reportedly her teacher said, “With the “new math, close is good enough.”http://www.defendruralamerica.com/.
Can you believe it, 2+2 = 5? This is math? Not English or philosophy, where there is room for many arbitrary answers. But math? Where the slightest deviation from correct calculations could send our spaceship to the sun instead of the moon?
As a retired nurse, I can not imagine how I would figure out how many milliliters of a chemical (medicine) to draw up in a syringe to inject into a 20 lb. infant or a 200 lb man. What would be “good enough?”
When I hit the play on a video titled Agenda 21 for Dummies; at 7:06 minutes into the video I see on the screen
2 + 2 = 5.
I did a double, triple, quadruple take.
This is called Connected Mathematics. The new world order version of math. If this is truly what is being taught, it’s no wonder why Del Norte County comes in dead last in academics out of all the counties in California.
Connected mathematics teaches “Mathematics is man-made, that it is arbitrary and good solutions are arrived at by CONSENSUS by those who are considered EXPERTS!”

Guess it’s time to talk with our School Board and find out if all of our public school children are being taught New Math. If they are, I hope I’m never in their care if they have to inject me with meds.
