Parent Uses Common Core to Write Check

See Why This Dad's Funny Dig at Common Core Math Is Going Viral

We laughed — real hard — when Stephen Colbert took on Common Core math and scratched our heads when a teacher tried to explain a Common Core math problem. But what happens when a parent gets frustrated over the process?

One Ohio dad decided to make a point when writing out a donation check to his child's school. In a photo that is going viral on Twitter, you can see that rather than simply filling out the check, the father used longform Common Core standards in the blank spaces, leaving the school and the bank to figure out the problem for themselves:

I don't know about you, but I'm stumped. I plan to ask my fourth grader to explain it to me tonight, and in the meantime, I hope the bank tellers went to school in the past five years, because otherwise, I'm not so sure this school will be getting their donation anytime soon!
