Mary Davis: Math prep

May 5, 2014 

Regarding the May 5 news article “ Schools to discuss policy on zeros”: Is this common core math? When is a zero not a zero? When teachers are forced to give students a grade of 50 when they turn in no work or work that is of less than 50 percent quality.

But I suppose this is just preparation for higher education at UNC-Chapel Hill.
