Developers of a Revolutionary Math Tutoring App Publish Resource for Parents of Second-Graders

Tabtor's New Guide Gives Parents Information to Help Their Second-Grade Child Succeed in Math

KENDALL PARK, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 09/02/14 -- 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 2nd Grade Math + Practice Worksheets, is available for free download at www.tabtor.com/2nd-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 second-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 four critical areas of focus -- base 10 notation, addition and subtraction, standard units of measure, and shapes -- that second-graders will concentrate on during the school year
  • Detailing four key topics that will be taught to second-graders
  • Examining eight math practices geared toward helping students excel at the new math standards
  • Including free worksheets that will give second-graders and their parents an idea of what to expect from curriculum

"The more understanding you have about the Common Core State Standards and the second-grade math curriculum, the better you'll be at helping your child succeed in these concepts," says Raj Valli, Founder and CEO of Tabtor. "Children need math enrichment outside of school, which is why it is important to be informed and participate in the child's growth. This e-book and its worksheets will help you stay in the know about second-grade math curriculum and test your child's understanding of second-grade math within the new standards."

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.

Further, serverless computing, cl...
