A second-grade student reportedly attending elementary school in California does not appear to be a fan of the Common Core math curriculum.
The 7-year-old’s parent sent the Daily Caller a copy of a note that the anonymous child left on a math assignment.

“17 + 25 = 42,” the student reportedly wrote. “I got the assignment by talking in my brain and I agreed of the answer that my brain got.”
According to the Daily Caller, the unidentified San Jose school uses the GO Math! curriculum by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
“If you look closely under the math question, you will be able to see the Common Core standards in a blue-colored print that aligns to that particular question,” the parent explained to the Daily Caller.
No additional details were provided by the Daily Caller about the student or school the assignment was given in.
Earlier this week, TheBlaze reported on one “frustrated” father’s viral response to a Common Core assignment given to his son.
“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,” he wrote.
