JABarney Posted September 8, 2012 Share Posted September 8, 2012 Hi; I have spent countless hours researching math curriculum to the point where I am now experiencing the joys and agony of solving algebraic problems in my sleep! You see, I am attempting to plan out our homeschooling math progression after grade 6 (yes we are only in grade 4) and like many other 'good' homeschooling moms, I found myself researching as veraciously as I did when researching car seats and toddler safety! It's exhausting yes, but also quite fun in a geeky sort of way I could have never predicted only a few short years ago. Finally, after much resistance due to my "I can 'out-educate' my dc compared to any public school any day" attitude, I got curious about state 'standards' and the new Common Core especially as it pertains to math. One question I found myself repeatedly asking was "is the Common Core good enough?" I came across this online and thought I would share. Interesting is all I will say for now. Have fun in the discussion! http://math.berkeley.edu/~wu/CommonCoreIV.pdf Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
