This is a wonderful site with course challenges, remediation videos, and step by step guidance. Have your student take the course challenge and you will know what they need to work on to be successful in their current grade level. Thanks in advance and if you have any question please feel free to send me a message.

Here are five ways that parents can help their children with mathematics

Spend time with kids on simple board games, puzzles, and activities that encourage strong math skills. Even everyday activities, such as playing in a sandbox or in a bath tub can teach children math concepts such as weight, density, and volume. Check your TV listings for shows that can reinforce math skills in a practical and fun way.

  1. Encourage children to solve problems. Provide assistance, but let them figure it out themselves. Problem solving is a lifetime skill.
  2. The kitchen is filled with opportunities to teach fractional measurements, such as doubling and dividing cookie ingredients.
  3. Point out ways that people use math every day to pay bills, balance their checkbooks, make change, and calculate a tip at restaurants. Involve older children in projects that incorporate geometric and algebraic concepts, such as planting a garden, building a bookshelf, or figuring how long it will take to drive to your family vacation destination.
  4. Children should learn to read and interpret charts and graphs, such as those found in daily newspapers. Collecting and analyzing data will help your child draw conclusions and become discriminating readers of numerical information.

While teachers play an integral role in the education of children, it goes without saying that parental involvement makes the biggest difference in a child’s scholastic success.


Addition and Subtraction
Our students and teachers have been diligently working with addition and subtraction. Real world examples can be found all around (driving in the car, at the grocery store, doing household chores, and counting money). Please help us to help your child with this concept and have fun in the process. Stay tuned for more ideas on how to work with your child in Mathematics.
Kinder: Addition and Subtraction up to the number 5 (as the sum or difference)
First: Addition and Subtraction up to the number 10 (as the sum or difference)
