We haven't had something good to argue about here recently, so let me toss this out here. I stumbled across this on Twitter the other day, and the ensuing discussion was pure hilarity. Keep in mind, the question posed here is HOW IT IT POSSIBLE? Alleged "Teacher" grades kid's answer given of a POSSIBILITY of how it could be as wrong because in their mind, it is not possible, along with a few self-professed "scientists" in the ensuing discussion, once who had zero problem assuming that all pizzas are created equal, but when asked if Pizza was changed to Dinosaur (he claimed to be a paleontologist, so I went with it) all of a sudden he had to pump the brakes because there wasn't enough data here to assume anything in regards to sizes of any hypothetical Dinosaurs.. then proceeded to just stand firm and call the entire question "asked wrong" so it would fit his view of what it should have been asking all along while enforcing the "Teacher" was right. My thoughts on this were as follows, "Because 5/6 of Rhode Island is totally larger than 4/6 of Alaska" To that, if we keep the same question... Marty __X__ 4/6 of his __Y___ Luis __X__ 5/6 of his ___Y__. Marty __X__ more of his _Y__ than Luis. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? Some reasonable substitutions.... X= Drove Y= State X= Mowed Y= Lawn X= Swam Y= Lake X= Cut Y= Hair etc.. Does it make the "Teacher's" grading any more right? I gotta admit one thing, the kid that answered this belongs in a think tank if this is what our modern day academia can come up with in how we need to approach this "new math" crap.
