Another Common Core Math Problem Has Parents Baffled

(FOX NEWS)- A parent shared a picture of their child's perplexing Common Core-style math test.

The student, asked to solve 5 x 3, was penalized for writing "5 + 5 + 5" instead of "3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3."

The student was docked another point for again mixing things up on an array representation of 4 x 6.

It all seems completely foreign to many parents who grew up memorizing multiplication tables and other basic arithmetic.
