Subject: amazing test results in our school 4th grde assessments

our school district has been using chicago math since 1998, and our
assessments have been increasing astronomically since then. we are now
at 98% proficient and 65% are in the top achiever level.my oldest
child was in 2nd grade when it started and i hated it. homework was a
nightmare but once you get used to it everything just falls into
place.now my second child is in 2nd grade and she can whizz thru her
math homework by herself, she can add in her head 2 digit facts knows
reverse facts backwards and fowards. granted alot of the basic facts
must be drilled at home, they don't have time for it in class, and a
child who doesn't get support at home will have more trouble. so i
guess it depends on the particular child, but what i see my now 7th
grader able to do without any of my help or extra help at school
amazes me.
