You Can Count on Mathematics: Developing Awareness and Mastery. Parent Participation - A Formula for Success.
Indiana State Dept. of Public Instruction, Indianapolis. Div. of Reading Effectiveness.
Designed to help parents teach their children some of the basic skills of mathematics, this guide provides numerous mathematics activities and suggests children's books that combine both mathematics and reading skills. It is felt that mathematics has a part in any occupation or hobby, and parents have a great deal of impact on children's mastery of this subject. The material is divided into sections that go from preschool through grade 2, grades 3 through 6, and grades 7 through 12. The document concludes with a brief bibliography of suggested resources for adults, and a summary that speaks of parents as valuable resources for their child's classroom teacher. The view expressed is that parents who create a positive home environment, remain aware of their child's interests, communicate and share with their children, will also share in the growth, success, and progress their child experiences.
