No, Common Core Does Not Teach That 3 x 4 = 11
As we were saying just the other day, the AFA's Bryan Fischer flat out does not care about the truth of the claims that he makes on his radio program, provided that he has some source to which he can point to support them, no matter how unreliable or misleading that source may be.
And he provided another example of this on his radio program yesterday when he played a clip of some educator stating that, under Common Core, it doesn't matter if students think that 3 x 4 = 11, so long as they can explain how they arrived at that answer, they will be correct.
Fischer was outraged, saying "this is somebody that is training teachers on how to implement this Common Core curriculum and she says 'look, we will be happy if a student says 3 x 4 is 11, we will accept that answer, we will be happy with that answer, we will affirm that answer":
Of course, if you bother to do ten seconds of research, you can easily find the longer, original video that doesn't get cut off right before the speaker says that any student who answered that 3 x 4 = 11 would be wrong and would be corrected:
