    Default fact families?

    My son brought math homework and surprisingly, he didn't ask me for help because he's really smart and understands fact families forwards and backwards and that's great! But I don't! Well, I do now but I'm wondering... Did I forget what fact families are or are these new concepts? I'm 49 so that'll give a clue of when I was in first grade.

    So the next part of my question is where do I go to learn all the new concepts he's learning? He's obviously learning how to think about concepts rather than the rote memorization and repetetive drills that I remember--his schoolwork looks more fun than what I remember.

    I don't think it is a new concept. Just new terminology. The best way I have found to learn things is to work along with my son. Most of it I already know, as I'm sure you do. We just have to remember what we learned so long ago. I've got ten years on you so it's been even longer since I was in first grade.
