Parents in a Pennsylvania district are seeking to couple an elementary-school math curriculum they say focuses too little on basic skills with other teaching methods. The current "Investigations in Number, Data and Space" curriculum, critics say, breaks problems into parts, rather than teaching long division and carrying and borrowing in addition. The curriculum calls for teaching certain algorithms in fourth and fifth grade, which some parents say is too late.
A return to the basics in math lessons is sought by some Pa. parents
