Chicago schools are finally starting to teach practical math that kids can use in real-world situations . . .

1. Lajames has an AK-47 with a 200-round clip. He usually misses 6 of every 10 shots and he uses 13 rounds per drive-by shooting. How many mofos can Lajames ice on a drive-by before he gotta reload ?

2. Willie has 2 ounces of cocaine. If he sell an 8 ball to Antonio for $320 and 2 grams to Juan for $85 per gram, what be the street value of the rest of his shit ?

3. Dwayne pimps 3 ho's. If the price is $85 per trick, how many tricks per day must each ho turn to support Dwayne's $800 per day crack habit ?

4. Raul wants to cut the pound of cocaine he bought for $40,000 to make 20% profit. How many ounce bags will he need to make to get the 20% upside ?
5. Marvin steals Juan's skateboard. As Marvin skates away at 15 mph, Juan load his .357 Magnum piece. If it take Juan 20 seconds to load his piece, how far away will Marvin be when he get whacked ?

Those are the types of questions I've been getting in school. They make it way harder and way more complicated than it needs to be.

Exactly, proof-based math like this is for Upper Division Math Majors studying Number Theory. And even there, students would be able to understand why natural numbers work the way they do.

That's the result of common core, when you actually do get the easiest questions ever you can't figure it out. I saw a video on Facebook where this woman's father asked her "If you were born 5 years ago, how old would you be today?" She was 23, she kept answering 18. Probably a result of being taught common core.
