Tabtor Publishes Common Core Resource for Parents of Fifth-Graders

Math Tutoring Innovator's Guide Helps Families Understand & Prepare for New Standards

KENDALL PARK, NJ--(Marketwired - Aug 22, 2014) - Tabtor, a leader in iPad- and tablet-based personalized learning platforms, today announced it is publishing a resource to help prepare families for the math concepts being introduced with the Common Core State Standards. The e-book, A Parents' Guide to 5th Grade Math + Practice Worksheets, is available for free download at www.tabtor.com/5th-grade-guide.

The Common Core State Standards, or CCSS, aim to establish consistent nationwide guidelines in what concepts are being taught in English and math from kindergarten through 12th grade. Adopted by 43 states and the District of Columbia, Common Core sets forth these new criteria, and states and school districts are then tasked with developing curricula that follow the standards. CCSS has been met with some confusion by parents on what their fifth-graders will be taught and how these guidelines differ than previous standards. This e-book helps families by:

  • Providing a better understanding of Common Core
  • Describing three critical areas of focus -- fraction, division and decimals, and volume -- that fifth-graders will concentrate on during the school year
  • Detailing five key topics that will be taught to fifth-graders
  • Examining eight Common Core eight math practices geared toward helping students excel at the new standards
  • Including free worksheets that will give fifth-graders and their parents an idea of what to expect from CCSS

"The more you understand about the Common Core State Standards, the better you'll be able to help your child learn the required skills," says Raj Valli, Founder and CEO of Tabtor. "Parents should not just rely on the teachers to ensure their child's education, but also be informed and participate in the child's growth. This e-book and its worksheets will help you stay in the know about CCSS requirements and test your child's understanding of fifth-grade math within the new standards."
