Frustrated Father Vents Homework Assignment

The nagging, the battles, the lost papersdo you dread school work as much as the kids do? well, you aren't alone.

A fed-up dad appears to have authored a hard-hitting note to his childs teacher in the space given to provide an answer.

"Jack used the number line below to solve 427 316. Find his error. Then write a letter to Jack telling him what he did right, and what he should do to fix his mistake, the assignment instructed.

That seemingly perplexing question prompted a response to the fictitious Jack character from the parent.

Dear Jack, the upset parent wrote. Dont feel bad. I have a bachelor of science degree in electronics engineering which included extensive study in differential equations and other higher math applications. Even I cannot explain the Common Core mathematics approach, nor get the answer correct.

In the real world, simplification is valued over complication, he added, signing the letter as a frustrated parent.

Since posted online, the response has been widely circulated on the Internet and shared thousands of times.

Its not clear who authored the letter and where the homework was assigned.

We say "Good for him!"
