What are Algorithms?
Algorithms are the procedures for doing an addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division problem. The "traditional" algorithms are the ones that we (as adults/parents) learned in school--carrying in addition, borrowing in subtraction, and long division. Your child learns more than one algorithm in the Everyday Mathematics program, because it helps them understand the mathematics behind the problem.
