Speaking In Numbers by Kary Shumway

Do you want to help your child improve in math, but don't know where to start? This short guide may hold answers for you.

Fear not, there is no actual math in this book. There are no tips on how to multiply fractions, memorize multiplication tables, or calculate the area of an isosceles triangle. This short book contains only simple (and some not so simple) steps that you can take right now to help your child learn math.

The Parent's Guide is written in clear and concise action steps for you to follow. Here you will find ideas on how to deal with your child's math anxiety, understand how your child learns, and use incentives to encourage your child to sharpen their pencil and give their best effort on their math homework.

Kids don't want to learn math because they don't know why they should learn. Pretty simple, right? Remember back to when you were a kid, you probably felt the same way. "What's the point, why do I need to learn this?" Many years later as adults we now know that the point of learning is to put the knowledge to use. We know that math can help us advance in our professional careers and our personal lives. We know that math is all around us and can be used every day.

By using the ideas in this book, perhaps you can arouse the curiosity in your children. Math is the study of numbers, but the Greek word for mathematics, mathema, means learning. And you thought it was only about the flash cards.
