The resources found here help students practice prior skills. They can provide extra help when a student is stuck on a homework problem or struggling with a math concept. The skills covered in this guide are like the foundation skills of an athlete. A basketball player must know
how to dribble, pass, and shoot but these skills are not everything that a player needs to win a game. A math student must know the basic skills but must also learn to think and communicate mathematically, to solve problems, and apply what has been learned to new concepts.
These resources are linked to the Common Core competencies on the elementary report card for Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth grade, along with Algebra and Geometry are linked to Tacoma's math big ideas.
