New Website for Parents to Help with Elementary Math

mathIn response to a November 2013 parent survey asking parents what type of information and help was needed with regards to elementary math, Hilliard City Schools has created a parent website.  Parents asked questions about the curriculum being taught and why it was “different” from when they learned how to add, subtract, multiply and divide.  This website is meant to give parents some background on why different methods are taught at each grade level.  It will also show video examples of ways parents can work with students at home to help alleviate homework stress. more
