Student-Parent Math Challenge


Congratulations to Nolan and his mom on winning the December Student-Parent Math Challenge.


Myth:  Math belongs in the classroom.  I can’t help my child learn math at home.

Fact: Teachers and parents play different roles in helping children learn math.  Both roles are equally important.  Your child’s teacher is trained to teach all aspects of the math curriculum.  Your role is to support your child in learning math, and to encourage his/her curiosity and interest about math.  A key way you can do this is through everyday activities that involve math.

Use this quick guide to create everyday number problems for your child at an appropriate level. The skills shown in this chart are ones your child should know by the end of each grade.
