Helping Your Child Learn Mathematics
US Department of Education
An increasingly technological world demands strong mathematical skills for the workforce and everyday life, and these demands will increase in the future. Research has shown that children are more likely to be successful in mathematics and other academic subjects when parents actively support their learning. To ensure that children are on track for success in school, college, and the workforce, parents must become involved early and stay involved throughout their children's school years. This involvement can help reinforce children's skills and positive attitude toward mathematics. Parents also can do many things in everyday situations that can help their children learn to solve problems and develop reasoning abilities, which are fundamental skills for learning mathematics. Simple routines such as grocery shopping and doing laundry can become learning experiences. This brochure includes suggestions and resources for parents to help children develop math skills. This brochure was drawn from the larger booklet in the "Helping Your Child" series, "Helping Your Child Learn Mathematics" (ED498947) which provides tips, resources, and fun activities that parents can use with children from preschool age through fifth grade to strengthen their mathematics skills and build positive attitudes toward mathematics.
