College students and others at George Mason University were dumbstruck by the tedious nature of an elementary level Common Core problem during a short series of interviews conducted by Campus Reform last week.

The problem, 32-12, was demonstrated to those on campus the traditional way and juxtaposed with the Common Core method.

“That was extra difficult for no reason” one interviewee told Campus Reform.

“Make it simple, cause that’s confusing.”

Last week the SAT, America’s leading college entrance exam, was revamped to closely align with the Common Core curriculum according to an announcement by the President of the College Board and “architect” of Common Core, David Coleman.
