Wright Group/McGraw-Hill has added online demonstrations to for parents helping children with homework and students or teachers who need additional support.

Everyday Mathematics teaches students more than one way to solve a math problem. Solutions are called algorithms and the multiple strategies encourage students to think critically about what methods are best to use for different problems and in different situations, according to the announcement.

Parents who would like to become more familiar with the algorithms in Everyday Mathematics can now see them step-by-step in the Free Family Resources section of The animations are easily accessible, organized by grade level and mathematical operation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division). Different types of algorithms are addressed for every operation, and several animated examples are provided for each algorithm.

These animations take users step-by-step through solving a problem with each algorithm. With voiceover instructions, the animations can help parents, students, or teachers gain a better understanding of different ways to solve a problem. In addition to the animations, parents, students, and teachers can use their login to access additional digital resources.
