... Racist

The State of Oregon on the “A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction: Dismantling Racism in Mathematics Instruction.”

One section argues that “white supremacy culture shows up in math classrooms” when students are required to “show their work.”

So instead, they said that people of color can "show" their work via Tic Tok.

Simply preparing another generation for failure.

The only way to ensure equality is to apply the same standard for everyone. There will always be those that excel, those that get by and those that fail. The ones that fail always look for an excuse. It's normally someone else's fault they failed. That is applicable to everyone, all races included.

Show your work is to display the evidence that you are using the correct formula. Math is not capable of being racist.

Isn't everything in traditional Western Civilization racist to the woke? Yes! Because it all comes from predominately White peoples. And that is the problem for them.

Now the anti-science looney left is saying that breast feeding is "ethically problematic" because it endorses "gender roles".


Who are these people? We are not talking about AOC and your average trailer hood Democrat, but academics.

We live in a strange world.

Viemar Germany. Not kidding. Every debauchery was prevalent and pushed on the culture. People hear the words but don't really understand Viemar's hyperinflation. Citizens economically bled out. Communists and progressive movements. Foreigners buying up buildings, etc..

It's unfolding today though and intentional. It's planned. Viemar is where they're taking us to bring the reset. The people doing this know what reactions will be because it's been done many times in many nations.

https://www.firearmsnews.co...n-the-streets/377401

We all recognize the Trump affiliates are anti to the communists.

Quote from the article:
There are some similarities here in the United States. A culture war has been brewing the past several years which has divided us into Red verses Blue. It is concentrated around violent pro-Communist groups like the Anti-Fascists (Antifa) and Black Lives Matter (BLM) on one side while the other consists of various groups including a small minority of identitarians called the Alt-Right. There have been numerous attacks by the Leftist groups and violent clashes between these oppositional groups across this country from Portland to Charlottesville. This has led to many injuries and some deaths.

Elements on the Left have called for the murder of police officers in defiance of the existing authority. In recent days we have seen that play out around the country. There is no way to really fully connect how many peace officers have died from this type of activity. There was also the 2017 Congressional baseball shooting which was an attempted assassination of Republican Congressmen by a Leftist gunman Some of these groups openly calling for violence are Antifa, BLM, Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action & Immigrant Rights, and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) in California.

You can easily see these same patterns with the previously mentioned Weimar groups. There are even Red Guard factions for Antifa like the Red Guards Austin or Red Guards Kansas City. These new groups have adapted to use the internet and social media as their means of gathering information, disseminating propaganda and maintaining exposure to the public. These groups can also spy on individuals today almost as easily as any government agency. In recent days we have seen widespread violence on the streets, police stations burned, politicians, police officers and even the military kneeling before the protestors. Entire areas of certain cities have burned with millions of dollars in damage. So far though, firearms have yet to see more than token use. However, the Leftist/Communist organizations continue to grow bolder and are actively acquiring firearms and training. It is only a matter of time before they escalate their use of force.

It was called the WEIMAR Republic, not "Viemar" (sic)

It's also the name of a very old city in central Germany

I've been there many times.

Not kidding....

It was both. The city and the Republic, which was not limited to the city. The Republic existed from 1919 to 1933. Unrest and debauchery wasnt limited to that time period.

Oh, you're talking about the W and V. Yes, W pronounced as V.

Lots of people don't know things related to golf or cricket or other such things... not saying it's "racist", but "math is hard" enough, when you lack the comprehension of the conext, its another level of suck

Everyone know how many hours are in a day. or how many eggs are in a dozen...

But they probably know what Kim Kardassian's favorite color is, who Brittany Spears is sleeping with, what happened last week on The Walking Dead, and they damn sure know how to google all that sports stuff all the rest of us know.

I once worked for a guy who told me that because he couldn't elevate his poor performers, he had to occasionally bring down his top performers. It didn't make any sense then and it doesn't make any sense now. This is nothing more than another scheme to hold back those who produce, in order to allow the slackers to catch up.

I understand if someone is asked

Johnny has a bakers dozen of biscuits and Mary takes 5 how many biscuits does Johnny have.

If the reader doesn't know what a bakers dozen is then that is an issue. But that is a teaching issue. There is nothing wrong with the question if there is an explanation of what a bakers dozen is.
Show your work.

A bakers dozen is 13 biscuits.
There are a few theories as to why a baker’s dozen became 13, but the most widely accepted one has to do with avoiding a beating. In medieval England there were laws that related the price of bread to the price of the wheat used to make it. Bakers who were found to be “cheating” their customers by overpricing undersized loaves were subject to strict punishment, including fines or flogging. Even with careful planning it is difficult to ensure that all of your baked goods come out the same size; there may be fluctuations in rising and baking and air content, and many of these bakers didn’t even have scales to weigh their dough. For fear of accidentally coming up short, they would throw in a bit extra to ensure that they wouldn’t end up with a surprise flogging later. In fact, sometimes a baker’s dozen was 14—just to be extra sure.


So 13 take away 5 and Johnny has 8 biscuits after Mary takes 5 because the baker didn't want beaten.

So I get that if a student doesn't know what a bakers dozen is that there would be an issue.
But I don't see how that means the student shouldn't provide how they got the answer.
Perhaps we should go back to beating the students.

Because the baker was white. White is bad. Therefore baker is bad. Therefore learning about the baker is white privilege.

My question is what are the progressives going to replace it with? We know how Ebonics turned out. What is next for math?

Actually, it's also another way to show the "teacher's" success rate, less failures. It's sad but, true.

"A Plan to Future-Proof the Texas Power Grid"
Jesse Jenkins, assistant professor and energy systems engineer at Princeton University; op-ed, New York Times; February 18, 2021.
https://www.nytimes.com/202...nion&pgtype=Homepage

It's not a fully worked out plan, just an informed overview of how this looks, in hindsight.

I try not to be hoodwinked by misleading oversimplifications of any kind, whether it's from a politician with an "R" after their name (I'm thinking of Texas governor Greg Abbott) with a soundbyte to shift responsibility from the "R" political brand onto advocates of wind energy and other renewables, or from a "Tucker Carlson" expressing a careless animus against wind energy; from a Green New Deal zealot that's misinformed and is erring in a roughly opposite direction, or even a mislead from some other forum member.

If it weren't for me, what would that particular Pennock's "user account" (immediately preceding message) ever have to say here?

Not much.
