Have you seen your child's math homework lately?
I have a question..
What is up with the new common core math? I get it is counting back.. but what is the point of this?
My little guy is in first grade, and I home school. I am following a common core curriculum and in first grade math 8+3=11 isn't that simple. It is 8 equals 5+3 , 5+3+3 equals 5+5+1 which equals.. We did the common core way for 30 seconds before going back to to 8+3=11..
Can anyone explain the point of teaching the new math..
Its like going around the block to get to your next door neighbors house. lol.
