SO HOW DO I HELP MY CHILD?

It’s Not the Math I Learned!

What is Mathematics?

Traditional ViewNegative Attitudes and Perceptions

Emphasis Ignored

Rules and Procedures Concepts and Big Ideas

Computation Problem Solving

Answers Thinking Processes

One “best” Way Alternative Strategies

Listen, copy, memorize, drill Explain, predict, justify, represent

The Cooking Analogy

“Arithmetic has usually been taught like it's a recipe: Take the raw ingredients (the numbers), follow a series of steps, and end up with a tasty end result (the answer). While an experienced baker knows why you cream butter and sugar before adding eggs, then add flour last, a beginner just following the steps is in the dark. They might know what to do, but they can't explain why.” (Nelson, 2014)

What is the curriculum?

Why the changes? Global economic concerns International comparisons College and career readiness

The Standards for Mathematical Practice

Overarching Habits of Mind Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Attend to precision.

Reasoning and Explaining Reason abstractly and quantitatively. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

Modeling and Using Tools Model with mathematics. Use appropriate tools strategically.

Seeing Structure and Generalizing Look for and make use of structure. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

How Can I Help My Child?

Ask questions What do you think? How do you know this? (Show me.) Why do you think this? Can you tell me more? What questions can you ask your teacher?

Help them master basic factsSupport math homework

Avoid “doing it”

How Can I Help My Child?

Teach them to do math in their head.Look to a teacher’s website, the

student work book, or ask the teacher if your child does not understand a concept.

Help them understand math vocabulary.

Help them solve word problems.Make math a part of everyday life.

How Can I Help My Child?

If your child asks for help with a strategy, do NOT tell them, “That’s not how you do it! I’ll show you the way I learned it, which was much easier!”
