Most schools have their own website which is supposed to include information about the teaching programs used, for example math. While we may have a simple way to explain a math problem, the school requres that it be taught a certain way, following a specific program accepted by the board. Odd, but true. Go to your school's website and see if you can find any info on this. If not, maybe try to discuss it with your child's teacher or principal. Good luck.
