So tell me, what is the answer to half past one? What time is it, if it is half past one?

UPDATE

So I had my daughter write and draw 1:30 and the teacher marked it wrong!

Apparently my daughter said the answer is 1:15. WTF?

UPDATE 2

blank stare.... wth?

Well Im going to re-teach my daughter that because its incorrect.

Meaning teach her the right answer, which should be 1:30

Quoting lapcounter: It's the common core bullshit she doesn't agree with it either.
Quoting thetrollcat:

OMG ARE YOU SERIOUS??? Im not yelling but seriously, they really are saying its 1:15?

OK I really gotta go talk to the school now...

Quoting lapcounter: My girl's had this question earlier this year and I said 1:30 and the teacher said no it's 1:15.

UPDATE PART THREE
This is what the work sheet looks like only it was blank except one thing completed. My daughter had to fill out the other two. It was random either drew the clock, wrote out the time, or stated how the time is told. The sheet specifically said, what is half past one.
