Everyday Math Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Why does my child have to move on to the next lesson if he or she hasn't mastered skills in the current lesson?
Answer: Everyday Mathematics is based on the idea that mastery of mathematics concepts and skills comes with repeated exposure and practice, not after just one lesson. To help children develop mastery, mathematical topics are introduced in an informal way, and then presented numerous times in different contexts with gradually more formal, directed instruction. When children revisit topics, they make new connections and gain different insights. Children regularly review and practice new concepts through activities, games, and assignments. This gives them sufficient time to internalize and master the concepts and skills that are the designated goals for their specific grade level.
