Online Schooling

Don’t worry it’s not me doing online schooling lol. My daughter is in online classes and also traditional classes which makes her a hybrid student. Based on the work she has been doing in class I see why some of the students are not doing their work. The way they teaching them is the hard way to me but I guess it’s a way to break it down. They do not learn math the straight way like the older generations have. The way they learn is breaking down the hundreds place, the tens place, and ones place. Like for example, 654+497… instead of doing the straight way through by adding anything over 10 buy putting one at the top of the tens or the hundreds place. They are learning to just add just the hundreds together like 600+400= 1000, then they have the tens together 50+90= 140, finally the ones place 4+7 = 11. Then they will add it all together. 1,000+140+11= which gives you 1,151. Lol it’s crazy because the way they taught us just the straight way not this way. What I’m looking at is when they get in the order of operation it’s going take them even longer to figure out the problem. It’s just crazy how something as simple as math has change. What has change in the way you use to learn?
