The Secret to Teaching Math Facts: Number Bonds Below you will see why I think teaching math basics with number bonds is the best way for your homeschoolers to learn math. Over our last four years of homeschooling, I have used several different math curricula. Some I liked better the others, but they all had their own strengths and weaknesses. One of the strengths of one particular curriculum we use, Singapore Math, is their method of teaching basic math facts. Instead of teaching fact families by rote, Singapore illustrates fact families using number bonds. Now, I realize this is just my unprofessional opinion, but as a self-professed math geek, I truly believe number bonds are (likely) the best ways to teach math facts.

In other words, pi is a set of numbers that has no ending. It is infinite just like a circle. Because it is infinite, it can not be multiplied or divided with any number and come to any conclusion. You can not calculate a mathematical formula and come to a solid conclusion unless you make the number whole or round it down to numbers that can be divided.
