Neil, Marilyn S.
Parents can do a great deal to support a child's learning in any subject area, especially mathematics. This paper reviews literature discussing what teachers and school administrators can do to establish parent-teacher partnerships to enhance children's learning of mathematics. Discussion includes a developmental process, intentional planning, cooperation, good leadership, monitoring, communication, participation, school commitment, newsletters, meetings, instructional materials, past unpleasant school memories of parents, evening classes, booklets sent home with child's school work, and math clinics. Contains 15 references. (MKR)
