Why is Math Taught Differently NOW?

Last week, a parent asked my why her child was learning math in a completely different way than how she had learned it. People ask me this question so often, I decided to record my answer for you.

The question that often follows this is, “how can I help my child when I didn’t learn math this way?”. You’ll find this answer near the end of the video as well.
