Carmel-Clay Schools uses a program called Everyday Math. Everyday Math is based on the idea that children build understanding and develop skills as a result of many meaningful and connected learning experiences. To help children develop mastery of a concept or skill it is taught in a repeated fashion. This allows children to make new connections and continue to build their mathmatical knowledge as content becomes more difficult and challenging. Everyday Math allows your child to have a more solid foundation and a more genuine understanding of math concepts.
