The Everyday Math Program like any other curriculum has pros and cons but compared to other programs it is one of the better math programs that I have taught as a teacher. It is difficult for parents to understand because it uses a variety of methods to teach students a variety of ways to solve problems. Some children may have difficulty if they have not been taught this program since Kindergarten because it is a spiral curriculum It builds from Kindergarten and continues on. Parents may not be able to assist children because they never learned Everyday Math but workshops and teachers have made time and seminars available to explain the program. The students like it. Lessons are mostly hands on and engaging. Games are motivating Students have fun without realizing that they are learning and practicing higher math skills such as skip counting, algebra, geometry and problem solving.

As a parent I do not like the math program. It called Everyday math. My kids don't seem to mind it, however, it is the only math that they know. My older child, now 15, has had a hard time in math due to the district changing the program when he was in Elementary, therefore, deprogaming my child and reprogramming him for a different math. We all know how hard this is. Otherwise I have no real problems with the school. TK
