I too would not be responding to your concerns if I did not know that Chicago Math(UCSMP) was a good program. I have used it for several years now and feel very strongly about it. It teaches children to THINK, and not just respond to an operational sign. Before this program, my students could compute but were never sure which operation to use unless it was stated. Chicago Math, now known as Everyday Math, teaches children to be mathematical thinkers and problem solvers. The test scores in our system have gone up consistently as our students become more confident in their skills. You can contact Everyday Math for further info and research at 1-800-382-7670. They also have a website at www.everydaylearning.com with a discussion section that you can join. Talk to the principal about your concerns. Make sure that the school is taking full advantage of available training so everyone has the latest training and information. If you need more information, write back. -Judy, for the Teacher2Teacher service
