Why Would They Change Math? Math is Math!

Apr 27, 2018 | Gilbert

Sounds familiar? The fact that this conversation has made it to a famous movie proves that many parents are struggling to help their kids with “New Math”.

Are you a parent frustrated with common core math (“New math”) standards? You are not alone. Many parents in the Gilbert, Chandler and Mesa communities have been challenged with helping their child with their math homework. Common core standards have shifted math education. It is challenging for a parent to help their child when math taught in school is different compared to how they learnt during their school years.

So what changed with the new common core math standards?

  1. Each concept is taught in more depth to build a solid understanding. Students must be able to apply math skills to solve complex problems.
  2. Math concepts build on each other in progression and new learning must be integrated with previous learning.
  3. Students need to understand key concepts and procedural skills and be able to use that understanding to solve a variety of problems.
