Key things to remember in setting up a math program with your child:
- Establish a routine. Students should be working on practicing math fluency and comprehension on a daily basis to maximize learning. Please talk to your child’s teacher about what a daily math routine should look like for your child.
- Assess your child. To be sure key concepts are understood, give your child the chapter or unit assessments and allow them to work through the problems with minimum support. If these are too challenging, go back and practice some more before moving on. Share these assessments with your child’s teacher. Your child’s teacher may also wish to give your child a general assessment at the beginning and end of each school year to help chart progress.
- Choose a program that works for you and be sure to make use of the teacher’s guide as well as the student practice pieces.
- Use the District’s resources. Check out their Numeracy Website here.
