Ohhhhh - You Is So Wrong!
Click to enlarge and see if you can spot the *challenge*.
See if you can reconcile the second sentence with the ultimate sentence!
These Singapore Math books are just littered with mistakes. I don't understand how the bleep Frank Schaffer Publications could have published them. And I don't understand how the bleep major booksellers agreed to peddle such sloppy content.
I mean, what could me more frustrating for a kid learning or struggling with math than to assign impossible or incoherent questions???
And, again, it would only take someone of slight mathematical aptitude maybe 2 hours to edit the entire book.
Furthermore, it's by no means just this text. Almost every website I've visited with *sample SAT questions* and other math problems is similarly riddled with egregious mistakes. It's potboiler math!
