A Painesville, Ohio father showed his distaste for complicated math problem solving skills taught under Common Core standards by writing a check that no bank could possibly cash.
A picture of a check that the man used to pay Melridge Elementary is filled out using his kid’s fourth grade longform math strategy.
Instead of a dollar amount, a cryptic series of X’s and O’s accompany eight boxes with more O’s indicating the amount of the check.
Your guess is as good as ours as to how much the dad intended to write. Maybe you should ask a fourth grader.
