Common Core Question Asks: “There are 25 Sheep and 5 Dogs in a Flock. How Old is the Shepherd?”

Common Core Question Asks: “There are 25 Sheep and 5 Dogs in a Flock. How Old is the Shepherd?” | PUNDIT PRESS.

In an intentional attempt to study and potentially confuse children, children were asked “There are 25 sheep and 5 dogs in a flock. ?” Why might you ask this supposedly common-core aligned ?

According to the teachers who created this problem, it is to teach students that they must:

  1. Explain the meaning of a problem.

  2. Plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt.

  3. Continually ask themselves, “Does this make sense?”

It does not make sense.  Therefore, the answer is Chewbacca.
