8th grade we was doing algebra and arguing global warming, we had to know the worlds map precisely by the 8th grade and doing 8 page papers on different countries. But I was at a magnet school, curriculums vary drastically between magnet schools and public schools.
THE fu*k!!!!

Anything is hard if it's your first time looking at it in a long time and if you haven't had any review.

You could probably post a cumulative 4th or 5th grade exam (from the present) on here an people would be stumped by a lot of stuff on there.

Mainly because you haven't seen a lot of it in over 10-15 years and because you haven't had all school year to learn and review it

I know Comedy Central airs it sometimes[Idiocracy]. Funny, and pretty damn good social commentary. Looks like we ain't that far off from that movie being a reality.

honestly, if you have money or go to really good educational system then you get taught right..if you don't you are on your own...

thats whats wrong with america...every kid growing up doesn't receive the same education...my parents who grew up in india were already doing algebra by the 6th grade...as you can tell, they dont fu*k around over there.

bunch of retards on this site, i could of passed that test when i was 8.



but of course I went to one of the best private schools in DC, i guess this dumbed down thing is for poor ppl

the percent questions are standard pre-algebra math, that most private schools teach kids before then take algebra 1 or test into geometry.

maybe if your parents put the crack pipe down to actually send you to a good school youd be able to do basic things like spell, and find percents of wholes.

poor ppl lawse

I think I would have done just fine at this even in the eighth grade.

You have to remember that when you're in school and constantly around that stuff it can be pretty easy. Just like in highschool calculus you get by, but 10 years later you put a lot of that in front of me and I'd easily fail because I haven't done it in so long.
