1 Helping Your Child Learn Mathematics

4 Introduction What kind of attitude do you have toward math? Do you believe that math skills are important job and life skills? Do you see math as useful in everyday life? Or do you dread doing things that involve math figuring out how much new carpet you ll need, balancing the checkbook, reading the technical manual that came with the DVD player? How you answer these questions indicates how you may be influencing your child s attitudes toward math and how he* approaches learning math. If America is going to stay the best place to do business in the world, we must have the best math students. Margaret Spellings U. S. Secretary of Education Although parents can be a positive force in helping children learn math, they also can undermine their children s math ability and attitudes by saying things such as: Math is hard, or I m not surprised you don t do well in math, I didn t like math either when I was in school, or I wasn t very good in math and I m a success, so don t worry about doing well. Although you can t make your child like math, you can encourage her to do so, and you can take steps to ensure that she learns to appreciate its value both in her everyday life and in preparing for her future. You might point out to her how fortunate she is to have the opportunity to learn mathematics today when mathematics knowledge can open the door to so many interesting and exciting possibilities. In everyday interactions with children, there are many things that parents can do and do without lecturing or applying pressure to help children learn to solve problems, to communicate mathematically and to demonstrate reasoning abilities. These skills are fundamental to learning mathematics. iv * Please note: In this booklet, we refer to a child as he in some places and she in others. We do this to make the booklet easier to read. Please understand, however, that every point that we make is the same for boys and girls. 1

13 Dice Pennies, nickels, dimes This is a good game to play with the family. Have each player roll the dice and say the number. Then give the player that number of pennies. Explain that each penny is worth one cent. When a player gets five pennies, replace the pennies with a nickel. Explain that five pennies have the same value as one nickel that is, five cents. When she gets five more pennies, replace the pennies and the nickel with a dime. Help her to see that the value of five pennies plus the value of a nickel (five cents) equals 10 cents, which is the value of a dime. The first player to reach a set amount 25 or 50 cents, for example wins. Children can be confused by money. Some might think that the larger a coin is, the more valuable it is so a penny or nickel would be more valuable than a dime. 18 Treasure Hunt Kindergarten Grade 1 Once children begin school, math-related activities at home can help to reinforce what they are learning about numbers and arithmetic operations such as addition and subtraction, as well as reinforce classification skills and mathematical reasoning. Large container Buttons, bottle caps, old keys or any other small items that you can count As a rainy day activity, place the items in the container and give it to your child. Have him sort and classify items into piles: keys, buttons and so forth. Then have him explain how the items in each pile are alike and how they are different. For example, some buttons may be big and some small; some keys may be silver-colored and some gold-colored. Have your child choose one of the piles and organize the items in it by one characteristic, such as length. Have him lay the items end to end then compare and contrast what he sees. For example, how many short keys? long keys? Next, ask your child to use the items in another pile of items to solve simple math problems. Try problems such as the following: If you have 10 bottle caps and give me two, how many bottle caps do you have left? If you have three big buttons and three small ones, how many buttons do you have altogether? Create activities that challenge your child to use mathematical reasoning. Ask him, for example, to look closely at items and answer questions such as the following: Is a gold-colored key always heavier than a silver-colored one? Do the big buttons always have more holes than the smaller ones? Keeping the tone of math activities light will increase the likelihood that children will want to do them and make the activities seem less like homework. 19

14 In the News(paper) Kindergarten Grade 1 Newspapers are good resources for building number sense and arithmetic skills and using mathematical reasoning. Newspaper Safety scissors Pencil or crayon Glue Paper Hole puncher Yarn Give your child a newspaper and a set of numbers to look for for example, from 1 to 25 (or 1 to 100 if she is familiar with the higher numbers). Have her cut out the numbers and glue them in numerical order onto a large piece of paper. Call her attention to any ways in which the numbers differ for example, some will be in a bigger size of type than others, some will be in bold or italic type. Have her read the numbers to you, then put the paper aside. Have her practice counting up to that number then counting down from it. Also try having her count to the number by 2s or 5s. Next, have your child make a counting book by using pictures she s cut from the newspaper. Have her write the page numbers at the bottom of each blank page and paste one item on page 1, two on page 2 and so forth. Explain that all of the things she puts on a page must be alike in some way all animals, all basketball players, all cars and so on. Help her to write the name of the item on the appropriate page. Have your child read the book to you. Afterwards, ask her questions such as the following: How many pictures did you cut out altogether ( )? How many total pictures are on pages 1-3? on pages 1-6? We know that 6 = 2 x 3. Are there twice as many pictures on page 6 as on page 3? Are there twice as many pictures from page 1 to 6 as from pages 1 to 3? Which are there more of: pictures on pages 2, 3, and 4, or pictures on pages 5 and 6? Newspapers also can be used to help young children learn to recognize numbers in different sizes and kinds of type and to understand that the way a number looks does not change its value
