Are you better at math than a 4th (or 10th) grader

Math 0

newslash.formatblows (2011678) writes "This blog post discusses the National Assessment of Educational Progress test (specifically, the math part). One of the school board members took it and was unable to answer any of the 60 math questions, though he guessed correctly on 10 of them. He then goes on to claim that the math isn't relevant to many people. What do you think?

P.S. — if you want to feel like Einstein, check out http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-buzz/post/test-your-math-skills-on-questions-meant-for-fourth--and-eighth-graders/2011/12/07/gIQAVnHhcO_blog.html for some sample questions"
