Math Power: How to Help Your Child Love Math, Even if You Don't: Revised Editionby Patricia Clark Kenschaft
In America today, many elementary school teachers are woefully unprepared to teach math. Parents are their children's primary hope. With Math Power any child can overcome mediocre math teaching in school and parental math anxiety at home. Pat Kenschaft, a mathematician and mother of two, shares with parents her easy-to-follow and concrete strategies for teaching math concepts. Her lively techniques-including games, questions, conversations, and specific math activities-are tailored for children from preschool age to ten years old.
Kenschaft shows parents how to assess the math education their children are getting at school. She argues that rote learning and standardized testing cripple a child's natural love of learning, and she shows how parents can effectively supplement their children's math education at home.
Math Power-now with a detailed appendix for homeschoolers-is the only book by a mathematician for parents of young children. It gives parents the tools they need to help their children achieve academic and real-world success.
