I really am starting to H-A-T-E Everyday Math. I've never minded it before.
This year, I hate it. I'm not sure if my students this year are all just completely inept at math or what but holy man.
I'm thinking perhaps subconsciously I left my file tote at school Friday so I didn't have to face these tests. I mean SERIOUSLY. They can't follow a simple direction that says "Write three equivalent fractions". Some gave me 1, some gave me percents and some gave me decimals. Considering this is the first question on the test, it's just not good.
The more I grade the more I wonder if I have been alone in my classroom teaching. I mean, really? AND they got to use a reference folder to help them and they STILL don't get it.
