Many parents struggle to help their children with math. After taking this class, you will know how to help your young child build a foundation for success in mathematics. If you struggle to help your child with the work he is bringing home from school, this course will show you what to do.
Helping your children at home is critical to their success. More than 40 years of research has proven that the most accurate predictor of a child’s achievement in school is not income, the quality of the school they attend, social status or even teacher quality. It is how much family’s support learning at home, set realistic and high expectations, and become involved at school and in the community.
After taking this class you will be able to help your child:
- Build strong math reasoning skills
- Deeply understand math procedures and operations
- Learn strategies they can use to solve more difficult math problems in later grades
