Parent/Guardian Resources for EM4 Strategies
Would you like to help your child with homework, but don't understand the way it is being taught? Have you thought to yourself…”That's not how I learned to do ...."? For many parents/guardians, partial sums, partial products, etc., are unfamiliar and can be roadblocks when trying to be a partner in their child's math education. These resources explain why we teach alternative algorithms/strategies and when they are taught to students. There are also slideshows that take parents/guardians through each algorithm, step-by-step. Please explore them and hopefully you’ll find them helpful.
