MathRomp.com: old-fashioned math pedagogy in a digital context
Parents today face unparalleled challenges as we seek to raise our children to be successful adults. We know that our children must have a firm grasp of math skills in order to get ahead in life, and yet sometimes we feel that the schools are letting our children down by not teaching the rote skills that lie at the heart of arithmetic. Concepts are wonderful, but useless if a child cannot perform the basic math operations quickly and automatically. It's not the fault of our teachers, as they are bound to follow the dictates of the unholy trinity of big education, big publishing and big testing!
We know that you will not sacrifice your child's future at the ideological altar of the Common Core. We know that you will ensure that your child masters the basic math skills and fact sets necessary to even approach a conceptual understanding of mathematics. And we are here to help!
Let's face it: arithmetic has not changed all that much since the Renaissance well over half a millennium ago. What worked for our parents, and grandparents, and great-grandparents ... will still work for our children. The trick is to take the rote drills of yesterday, and package them in such a way as to be accessible to the digital natives of today!
