A ridiculous Common Core test for first graders

It always pains me that my nieces and nepthews tell me that they hate math. I'm developing an understanding of why...

See a copy of the test here: http://roundtheinkwell.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/the-math-test.pdf

It took me a few moment to work out what the hell they wanted with the boxy things in questions 6-8. Question 1 is deplorable.

If the intent of administering such a test is to kill off all the joy and beauty a child might find in mathematics I award an A+.
