As I’m in schools throughout Michigan and the United States, every place I go has a different way of thinking about math and different levels of rigor and expectation.
I love this blog because I have a chance to bring (hopefully!) relevant and useful topics based on a snapshot of what is going on in schools every day! Today, we’re going to tackle subtraction with regrouping.
