Somehow i have come to be a walking cliche: a parent that is can not to understand his kid’s math homework. Cursed you, New Math typical Core! cursed you to 7734!

So right here it is. Mine kid needs to sort “number sentences” (simple equations choose 3+4=7) into various groups. Doubles, doubles +1, etc. Among the teams is established solely together “Mentally Visualized 5-Groups.” I have a concept of what this way but ns can’t number out which “number sentences” would get in this group. Equations with a 5 in them? Equations v 5 as the answer? Help! any elementary college teachers please chime in.

If I’m analysis this and this right, holy spirit Visualized 5 teams would be equations v a 5 in them. Probably it makes an ext sense bundled v classroom instruction.

Also, win the strikes and use .

There is so lot wrong v public education these days, and also the standardizing the curriculum is just one piece of it. Where are the “get the federal government off our backs” people when there’s an actual require for them? Answer: castle behind every this federal testing/common core crap. Agh - don’t get me started.

Somehow i have become a wade cliche: a parent that is unable to recognize his kid’s mathematics homework. Damn you, New Math common Core! damn you to 7734!

So below it is. My kid has to sort “number sentences” (simple equations prefer 3+4=7) into different groups. Doubles, doubles +1, etc. One of the teams is established solely as “Mentally Visualized 5-Groups.” I have actually a concept of what this way but i can’t figure out i m sorry “number sentences” would get in this group. Equations through a 5 in them? Equations v 5 as the answer? Help! any kind of elementary school teachers you re welcome chime in.

Yes, it shows up Eureka Math specifies a “5 group” together an equation through a 5 in it.

I’d be more interested in where this ax “5 groups” even shows up in the typical Core - i looked through qualities K and 1 and also couldn’t uncover it. The closest I could find is K.OA.A.5, “Fluently add and subtract within 5,” or K.OA.A.3, “Decompose numbers much less than or equal to 10 right into pairs in more than one way.”

I doubt the ax “5 groups” is in the actual usual Core documents.

I see a lot of this term in Google searches indigenous Eureka Math, which is at commoncore.org, however it no clear if they’re just a non-profit do materials based on Common core or whether they’re in reality affiliated with typical Core - your URL makes it show up that the the latter and also yet I doubt it’s the former.

Sorry because that the slightly off-topic ramble, but because the OP pointed out – er, damned – the common Core, I assumed I’d post.
