A big frustration we see with parents coming into our center is not being able to help their student with their math homework because they feel it is not the same way they learned. Instead of helping their student by teaching them "traditional math" they hinder their student by confusing them with a different method when they haven't fully mastered the methods put in the classroom known as Common Core.
Traditional math instruction focuses on teaching students formulas and procedures to solve problems, whereas Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in math emphasizes understanding key concepts and skills in greater depth. CCSS also encourages critical thinking and problem-solving, whereas traditional instruction may place more emphasis on memorization.
Additionally, traditional math instruction often follows a one-size-fits-all approach, whereas CCSS provides a framework that allows teachers to design instruction that meets the needs of individual students. CCSS also provides resources and support for teachers to implement the standards in the classroom.
While traditional math instruction has its merits, CCSS has been developed to better prepare students for college and career by teaching them the skills they need to succeed in the 21st century.
