Our past few blog posts have highlighted the direction we are taking with some of our schools this spring to really develop the coherence and connectedness of the Common Core standards in the math classroom.
This week, on our website, we are launching a new tab – video tutorials! We are pleased to finally be able to provide this much-requested feature, but first…
There are so many different types of math programs available – Everyday Math, My Math, Go Math, Eureka Math/EngageNY, Math Expressions. They’re all designed around the same standards, though the way each program teaches the standards can be very different.

When those sweet little faces arrive in kindergarten at the beginning of the year, they often don’t come with much background information.
We live in a “plugged in” culture, where students spend extended periods of time consuming visual images. This severely limits their visual memory or their ability to access and recall images and real-life situations that happened to them.
Blocks are an essential part of any early childhood experience, whether in a classroom or at home.

Once students have a solid conceptual understanding of equivalent fractions and comparing fractions, the next thing we want to work on is helping kids add and subtract fractions, whether with common or uncommon denominators.
