Math Homework Help is here!
New Math. Ugh. I know I sound like an old fuddy duddy when I say this, but I cannot stand the ‘new math.’ It makes no sense to me.
Brian does his homework here at the kitchen table, so I am usually watching and listening as he works through math problems. Maybe this new way is better, I don’t know. It seems like it’s many more steps to get to the same result.
And my son is good at math and loves it! I don’t know what we would do if he was struggling. I look at a math problem of his (4th grade) and I can get the answer, but not show the work that the teacher wants to see. It’s very frustrating as a parent to not be able to help them with their homework.
I suppose this is parenting in the 21st century. If parents can’t figure it out, we go to the Internet or Ask Alexa. Here are some of the great sites I found when looking up ways to explain math to my 4th grader.
