Families are important partners in the process of teaching mathematics. Since the research on how students best learn math has changed, families may not be familiar with the approach used in your child's classroom. For this reason, a number of Family Letters are provided with the the Investigations curriculum to keep you informed about each unit.
The first Family Letter in each unit introduces you to the mathematics your child will be doing and the benchmarks for that unit.
The second letter in each unit suggests related activities that you can do with your child to support the work done in class.
From time to time, additional letters are included in a unit. These letters deal with such things as helping your child with homework, learning math facts, and teaching age-appropriate strategies for computation.
