If you have concerns about your child's Math program, which program your child should take, or what the heck are they teaching my kids now, please attend this Math presentation. Don't get your information from a web site promoting one method over another. Don't rely on a Yahoo group for information. Ask the professionals who are familiar with both methods, teach both methods, and measure the results. This presentation will help you guide your child, or you, to make the right decision in selecting Math programs and pathways through High School.
