This actually makes me really mad.
I stumbled across a video today that appears to be a 4th Grade teacher showing parents how to do Common Core multiplication.
The teacher seems very nice, but what she is teaching is insanity!

You'll note that video calls it an "amazing solution" but that's just spin (as Bill O'Reilly would say).
It's not amazing, it's insanity.
And the comments to that video show that almost EVERYONE agrees it is head-up-your-ass stupid!
