Understanding Mathematics

Math Help for Parents and Students
In response to requests at parent conferences and parent meetings, we have created this web page as a tool to help parents understand math  instruction in the elementary grades. Talking to your classroom teacher is always the first and best step,  but these resources can be helpful for you and your child as the student moves through the math curriculum.
Some of these sites (Learn Zillion and Khan Academy) require that you create a FREE account and then lead you to specific videos that guide you through lessons about the math your child is learning, based on their grade level. Parents should search the site and view videos specific to their child's level of instruction.
The Math Guide links on the right side of this page are  from the  Council of the Great City Schools'.  They are  parent roadmaps in mathematics that provide guidance to parents about what their children will be learning and how they can support that learning in grades K-8. These parent roadmaps for each grade level also provide three-year snapshots showing how selected standards progress from year to year so that students will be college and career ready upon their graduation from high school.  Choose a grade and click!
Keep in mind...this page is a "work in progress". New links to helpful areas will be added as they are discovered. Feel free to contact us if you find a resource that is especially helpful to you and your child. Send the link to [email protected] or call 440-392-5069
