Common Core is designed for children to no longer rely on anything other their own reasoning about how they answer a math question, and then being capable of competently explaining how they arrived at their answer. A San Jose, California second-grader competently explains that the answer came from talking in his brain and he agreed with the answer his brain got!
With Common Core math, knowing that 3 x 4 is 12 is not the important issue. If a child believes that 3 x 4 is 11, and can explain how he/she came to that conclusion, then that child will get along well with Common Core.
Maybe your doctor can think about and “feel” the correct dosage for your meds, rather than clearly evaluating all the factors.
