leeannpal Posted March 2, 2012 Share Posted March 2, 2012 As a student in public school, I was generally terrible at math. As an adult, I've picked up some tricks that I think are conceptual and have been teaching them to my daughter who is in 3rd grade at a private school. What I'm not sure of is exactly what conceptual math is? Yesterday, my daughter had a word problem that she was trying to do in the car mentally since she couldn't write well while we were moving. The essence of the problem was to subtract 9 from 24. I reminded her to add a one to the 9 to make 10 and then subtract 10 from 24 and add back the one. She was easily able to do this. Is this a form of conceptual math? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
