We use Eureka Math which is perfectly aligned with the Common Core standards. This program encourages the students to think deeper and to understand the "why's" of math and not just the "how's". Instead of memorizing an algorithm or method of solving a type of problem, students are asked to reason through why they perform each step. This will allow the student to think beyond the examples on the worksheet and be able to apply the concepts to other math situations.
