Overview

This ultimate parents' guide to elementary school math features projects, games, and activities children and parents can do together to increase their understanding of basic math concepts. Fun activities such as mapping a child's bedroom for practice in measurements or keeping a diary of numeric items like vacation mileage and expenses reinforce the math skills outlined in each lesson. Using the standards issued by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics as a foundation, this book covers both content and process standards for areas such as algebra, geometry, measurement, problem solving, and reasoning/proofs. It also includes a glossary of math terms and dozens of suggestions for additional children's reading to further math understanding.
