The leading contender for today’s failure is the one who marked this child’s “reasonableness issue.” Because their mark – and comment – was very unreasonable indeed.
The question and answer went viral after it was shared the furry manifesto on Reddit.
“This makes me SO ANGRY.”
“I’m particularly triggered by how the teacher felt the need not to emphasize.”
“Ironic that the question is called reasonableness.”
“I find it especially funny that the question is about the mathematical definition of ‘rationality’ (the property of a number, quantity or expression to be expressible, or contain quantities that are expressible, as a ratio of integers)… the teacher didn’t know what it meant and just used the wrong words.’
“And gave the wrong answer.”
“With that answer, can’t you conclude that the child knows that 5/6 is greater than 4/6?”
‘Yes, and the question itself probably wants to highlight that as well. It feels like “Reasonability” should actually say “Relativity”, and then this would be a good trick question to highlight to kids that while 5/6 is bigger than 4/6 of the same pizza, 4/6 of a larger pizza still be larger than 5/6 of a smaller one.’
