Everyday Math Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Why does my child learn different algorithms to solve problems?
Answer: When children first begin learning about computation, they spend a lot of time experimenting with a variety of algorithms and sharing their own problem-solving methods. Instead of simply memorizing a set of prescribed algorithms, they learn to think, use common sense, and understand the purpose of algorithms. They are then required to demonstrate proficiency in one focus algorithm for each operation--addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.Focus algorithms are powerful, relatively efficient, and usually easier to understand and learn than traditional algorithms. Once children have mastered the focus algorithms for each operation, they are free to use any method to solve problems.
