homeschooling mama to DD 10 & DS 7
my question is for the moms / families actually taking this appraoch to math education in their homes --
this may be stupid
do you also "do" math .. like worksheets, or written problems on the white board or .....
I mean at some point .. you have to take writen numbers, and do additions and fractions and "work problems" ... right?
you know the good old "3 MMS + 2 MMs = 5 MMs
I didn't follow any named plan, but we didn't do ongoing "work problems" - it's one thing to do a few of this and a few of that once you already have an understanding of what they represent, but it doesn't take ongoing practice to be able to understand how to do written calculations. If math is threading through your lives, that part comes a lot easier/faster when it comes up.
ok, but -- even if you UNDERSTAND the "idea" behind addition .. at some point don't you have to pratice the "facts" (1+3=4 and so on). Apply the knowledge?
