I have received several questions regarding Everyday Math and Investigations Math. These seem to be the two most popular curricula in use in South Dakota schools as local districts align to the Common Core. This video explains both of these curricula better than I ever could.
If your school is using Everyday Mathematics or Investigations Math, this video is a must watch. You will learn the difference between traditional math algorithms, and the way our children are now being taught “math.” Please watch and share.
- Students who learn math by Investigations Math rarely become efficient, confident and fluent math users.
- Insufficient time to practice in Everyday Math. Learning standard algorithms is a waste of time. There are calculators.
