In school math was a subject I approached with trepidation. I usually was the last kid in class asking my teacher to check my problems so that I could continue my homework when I was at home. Here at The Educator's Room, we've written about math instruction intensively especially with the introduction of new tests based on math supported by the Common Core.
According to The New York Times, New York State reported that just 22 percent of the eighth graders who took this year’s Common Core-aligned math test received a passing mark. Take a moment and solve these questions and leave us a comment with how you scored!
