Teacher fired after assigning violent math problems to third graders

Living life one day at a time


The only scenario in which mathematical problems are presented in such a shocking manner could be considered acceptable or warranted, would be in a classroom of children (not at THIS age) that the majority of, were failing, or in danger of failing.
The 'wtf' factor of word problems like these may actually serve as a learning aid, or at least compel the children to whom such homework is assigned, to actually put it in front of their faces. I am not saying that it applies to the children in question. Given the AGE of the children that this work appeared in front of, it is certainly unacceptable. This educator neglected to even glance at the work he gave his students, after downloading it from a homeschooling website. This is what happens to lazy people. Lazy people get burned.

that's effing funny , wish they gave us math problems like that :3


[HIATUS] oops.


And you know, the dangers of consuming marbles IS relevant to this age group. I would present the information in a different way, but hey  little Timmy did DIE from eating 1573 marbles.

At first, the unnamed teacher at the Trinidad Center City School claimed he had been ordered to assign the problems, but it was quickly discovered that the teacher had actually downloaded them from a free homeschooling website look at this math problem "John's father gave him 1359 marbles on his birthday. John swallowed 585 marbles and died. 9 of John's friends came for his funeral the next day. John's grieving father gave the remaining marbles to John's friends in equal numbers. How many marbles did each friend get?" i always knew math was evil Wow, lol. What kind of homeschooling website did he get these math problems from?? uhohimdead wrote: PinkCeres wrote: ""I was sleeping one night when a hungry vampire sucked 3652 liters of blood from me and 1865 liters of blood from my little brother. How much blood did the hungry vampire drink that night?" With all the Twilighttards spawning everywhere I'm more surprised the American math average didn't increase. World is full of idiots. im more surprised that you didn't notice that the human body only has at most 56 liters of blood elephants have about 450 liters of blood unless the vampire was a vampiric whale i doubt they have the capacity to drink that much LOL!
