The math summer slide problem is exacerbated with the recent introduction of the Common Core Standards, a new set of national academic standards for math and English language arts adopted by 45 states.

Implicit in the Common Core Standards is the expectation "that kids will enter third grade knowing everything they should in second grade, so you don’t need to spend the beginning of the year reteaching,” says NCTM's Gojak. More reason than ever to make sure your child's up to speed during the summer months.
