I feel really good about having a 1'st grade teacher that knew both math and how to teach 1'st graders arithmetic. I feel really disgusted with brainless nimrods - who shall remain nameless but for his initials J.E.B B.U.S.H - who think they are smarter than Einstein, LaPlace, Kepler, Aristotle, and my 1'st grade teacher Ms. Williams.

I actually ran across someone who counted change correctly. Of course she is a grandmother type who was taught right to start with.

Here's my Common Core question Q: 2+2=4. Show your reasoning. a. Because the additions table I memorized in 1'st grade says so.

Actually- since a lot of them are LIV they are probably LII too. They think they have signed up but didn't.
But-But- 8 million people are now insured thanks to the wonderful Obamacare law. Obama just assured us of that yesterday and told us the debate was over. And of course- he would never lie or exaggerate something as important as this. /sarc off

Same here-I can't tell you how many different schools I went too. Yet somehow I managed to learn math. Of course I had a solid foundation. I had to memorize my addition and multiplication tables along with the basic commutative and associative rules.. Some things are just so fundamental they have to be memorized.
