Overview

Kids are struggling with math in school, on tests, and with homework. Parents feel stressed, helpless, and math-phobic. They struggle to encourage and assist on the very subject they are least prepared to manage: MATH.

Broken down using straightforward, simple language, this guide offers parents who are easily intimidated by math instructive and handy concepts to use when helping their students with homework or studying for a big test.

Parents banish math phobia once and for all by facing math head-on in Math for Moms and Dads. Frequently, the issue isn’t “how to,” it’s actually “what do they want me to do?” Learning the language of math in context is the first step in the right direction for helping yourself in today’s math morass so parents can help their child find his or her way out of any math quagmire.

Using a similar methodology applied in SAT Score-Raising Math Dictionary, Kaplan now focuses on the parent in this no-nonsense guide to the lexicon of math. Math terminology and key concepts are defined and decoded into regular, everyday language to promote authentic understanding of what’s at the heart of any math problem.

Other helpful elements are sample problems (with answers, so parents won’t sweat it!) broken down step-by-step; calculator tips so parents can troubleshoot technology-related concerns facing their kids; visual representations of math for visual learners; and National Council of Teachers of Mathematics standards so parents can plan for what their children are responsible for in the upcoming grade and get the help they may need in the appropriate time frame. Finally, a handy timeline detailing which ages/grades kids need to know and master certain math skills helps parents understand the overall math snapshot for the middle school and high school years ahead.

Parents (and then students) learn how to kick word problems to the curb once they figure out how to simplify the language of math with Math for Moms and Dads' easy-to-follow lexicon and resource guide!
