The fourth grade teaching team had a great turnout at Monday night’s Common Core math class and meeting that they held for parents. 31 parents attended the meeting to learn more about the Common Core math standards, as we are transitioning to these standards this school year.
Fourth grade teachers Ms. Jacque, Mrs. Mazon, Ms. Sarah and Ms. Miranda wanted to assist with any confusion or frustration parents may have when trying to help their children with math homework.
Common Core math problems often look quite different than past math problems. To help better understand the new standards, the teachers gave parents math problems that the students receive. The teachers and parents solved the problems together, step-by-step.
We hope the meeting helped those in attendance better understand the Common Core math standards.
The teaching team hopes to hold another class for parents during the year.
