By Amy Mirra
Edited by Amy Mirra
Family members play an important role in their children's attitudes toward, and success with, mathematics. This award-winning guide summarizes what today's mathematics classroom is like, offers tips on how family members can help their children have a positive attitude and enjoy mathematics, and presents practical ways to discuss and do math at home together during everyday situations. Ideas are presented from the elementary and prekindergarten years all the way through high school. The guide is a great resource for family members or teachers and administrators who want ideas to share with family members during events such as Parent Teacher or Family Math Nights. Reproducible take-home pages addressing questions commonly asked by family members are also included and can be used by teachers and administrators who want to send information home to family members.
