My child starts school. the public school district uses "Everyday Math".
it seems that most parents hate it. many teachers hate it. even the people who support it just seem kind of lukewarm about it. a lot of people want to fire the Superintendent for foisting this program upon the district.
I'm not sure what to think. apparently a lot of other districts use this program. It's supposed to have been developed by a crack team of math educators at the U of Chicago. so it should be good, right?
what do i need to know about this program? what should i do as a parent to prepare for this?
i'm looking for personal experiences (either as parent or educator). A few quality sites may be helpful.
