Top Tips for Parents


  • Build strong, positive attitudes about math. When children feel positively engaged and successful, they are more likely to stick with an activity or a problem to find a solution.
  • Begin with activities that meet your child’s level of mathematical understanding. Early success in solving problems will build your child’s confidence. Gradually move to activities that provide more challenge foryour child.
  • If you and your child are more comfortable in a language other than English, use it. Your child will understand concepts better in the language that he or she knows best.
