Is math a war zone in your homeschool? Are your children a casualty of the latest trends in math education in the public schools? Sequential? Spiral? American? Asian? What about manipulatives? Choosing math curriculum seems so complicated. In this workshop, we take a look at the “battlefield” through the lenses of Rainbow’s FAMILY factors in order to give clarity to the Math-field. Our workshop starts with an overview of the history of math education in the U.S., continues with a look at what needs to be learned when, and concludes with a comparative look at many popular math programs.
