Throughout the United States, the improvement of mathematics curriculum and tests have been implemented. This means math standards have been strengthened and a new level of accountability is in place. If you have specific questions or concerns please check with your school officials for advice and information.
Well, I am with you on this! The schools do not teach math the way they should! It has been made more difficult to understand math! Why can't they teach it the way it used to be? How can we as parents help them, when we were not taught that way? Also, calculators should be ruled out as a means of teaching to add, subtract, divide, and multiple. The new math is not acceptable in my opinion!
True that my 7 and 8 yr old bring math homework everyday. I'm surprise they already teach division, estimation, and round. My kids have hard time learning. I meet with their teacher, their answer was all kids have to do their work from the computer. We test them how many problems they solve on the computer, they do everything on computer in class only time they do paperwork is homework. I'm just frustrated to see my kids' report cards. They are working so hard, still get the same report every semester. I'm just worry they might repeat their class.
