There has been many changes in the way Math is taught. While I know you would like to help your child with any homework, I would suggest that you not! I teach in ways of discovery rather than going right to the algorithm. I very rarely send homework home, if I do, it is to review former skills. The series of Math books we use is called, CMP3. Your child will not have a text book checked out to them. They will have a notebook that will have resources that they may take home.
