How can I really help my kid with math? Not just with tonight's math homework, but for life?

A Parent's Guide to Making Math Meaningful and Enjoyable for Students in Grades 3-5

Homework of any kind can be a headache for parents, caregivers, and children, and for most, math homework is the greatest source of tension. Your child's questions about math homework may have already caused you to ask questions like, "What if I don't know the math myself?" Adding Math, Subtracting Tension is designed to help you develop a relationship with your child that includes math in a fun and approachable manner while strengthening your child's understanding of this critical subject. This book shows parents and caregivers how to use enjoyable, family-centered activities to complement school math lessons and incorporate learning into daily life. It is filled with age-appropriate material on the topics that students will encounter in grades 3-5, including chapters on multiplication, division, geometry, fractions, decimals, and much more.

About the author: Frances Stern has a master's degree in mathematics and has taught it at all levels, specializing in teaching math and math pedagogy to teachers. Her workshops have been enthusiastically received by parents, teachers, caregivers, and families at libraries, PTAs, schools, and professional organizations.
