Why Math Is Taught Differently Today

The reason for teaching conceptual understanding is to help students to see connections between the math they’re learning and the math they already know. This can be especially empowering for kids with learning and attention issues. It prepares them to solve the real-world problems they will face in the future.

Yes, math is being taught differently today. It may be a little more difficult for parents at times, but it definitely can be better for kids.
