In elementary school, your kid was exposed to core mathematical concepts that laid the foundation for more advanced math. By now, they probably understand our number system and how different kinds of calculations work; they can add and subtract and multiply and divide. They’ve got the basics of fractions and know how to work with shapes and measurements. Now, they’ll become deeper mathematical thinkers and dive into more complex problem-solving.
Most importantly, this is the time for them to master key mathematical concepts and skills that will take them all the way to high school math—and beyond.
