The Scout Report doesn't usually review three-minute videos, but this one from Vox is worth it. First, because the video itself explains in sharp detail the seemingly incomprehensible pedagogy behind the "new math" that the Common Core utilizes to help students draw logical conclusions about the underlying principles of mathematics. And second, because the accompanying article, with its yellow "Launch Cards," provides a great overview of the Common Core and related topics. There are 18 cards, each dedicated to a different aspect of the Common Core. Topics include answers to such mysteries as, What is the Common Core? as well as who created it, what problems it's trying to solve, what is the federal governments role, and other intriguing answers.
