How the Math Gets Done: Why Parents Don't Need to Worry About New vs. Old Math provides a roadmap to understanding what the symbols for math operations (add, subtract, multiply, and divide) really mean, what the clues are to interpret these symbols, and a kind of short story of how they evolved over time. to decipher the enigmatic squiggles of those verbs called operations. How the Math Gets Done: Why Parents Don't Need to Worry About New vs. Old Math compares the old and the new methods for math procedures from a "Big Idea" perspective by organizing the information in four sections: Definition, Organization, Relationships and Patterns, and Connections. Each section contains three chapters that clarify the issues related to each "Big Idea" section. The Conclusion offers parents even more hints and guidelines to help their child through this "math country" of procedures for calculating in math.

MEDIA REVIEWS
How the Math Gets Done is not a quick fix to raise the child's math grade for tomorrow's test, but about deciphering the child's thinking and establishing real math understanding for the long haul. Once a kid is in trouble, parents will not feel there is time to immediately get to the bottom of the issues, so they may want to skip around the book to locate the particular topic that is giving their child difficulty. This is the book that will wake parents (and teachers) up to the notion that multiple strategies are helpful and that opportunities for misunderstandings are lying in the path like so many land mines! -- Ann Hammond McCamy, Parent and Assistant Director, Delmont Public Library. Former curriculum writer for Lambert Book House, Education Coordinator at The House of the Seven Gables, and public and private school teacher
Oh my goodness, this book is brilliant and so helpful. As an educator and a mother, I can't help thinking that this is a book for everyone not just parents. How the Math Gets Done spotlights and breaks down into understandable nuggets the most intimate mathematical thinking of our children. While illuminating for us their understandings and misunderstandings, it pushes us -the adults- to think our very own understandings in the most non-threatening way, so that we can support our kids. -- Regine Philippeaux-Pierre, Mother of Two Children, Director, Excellence for All, Boston Public Schools
