BUFFALO, NY- Teachers are implementing the new Common Core learning standards in English Language Arts and Math classes in Western New York and all across the country.
The Common Core aims to teach strategies beyond memorization, focusing on pictures, numbers, and words. Some students find the math lessons confusing, and sadly, many parents can't help them because the lessons are foreign to them.
Fourth grade math teacher, Eileen Klag Ryan, from Maple West Elementary in the Williamsville School District explains different principles in 2 On Your Side's Homework Helper series. See a different tip each morning on Daybreak during Back 2 School Week. Here are all the tips below.
