Parent TipsMath . . . we all fear it and as parents we all have a little doubt that we could ever help our child with their math homework. But rest assured, you can help your child! Even if you don't know math or never got it, you can still help your child by following these tips:
- Provide a Quiet Space - math is detailed and to solve problems successfully your child needs a quiet place to think clearly. Finding a quiet space for your child to work thoughtfully for 30 minutes or more will greatly improve their chances at success.
- Check for Homework - your child has homework every night. No exceptions. If you find your child is not doing homework please consult with the teacher to address the issue. After school tutoring may be needed.
- Check Homework for Quality - you don't need to know how to solve the problems, but do look over your child's homework.
Is the work neat? Did they use the full page? Is the assignment's page number, problems to solve and objective written at the top? If you can answer yes to these questions, then you can be reasonably assured that your child is learning.
- Testing Days - be sure that your child gets a good night's sleep and that they eat a good breakfast.
