- Become active participants in your childs learning
- Student success chances increase when parents are involved
- Help create positive mental attitudes towards math, inside and outside of the classroom environment
- Keep lines of communication open with teachers. Teachers update student learning profiles with new information from parents.
- You can help with assessment! Monitor, track and observe your childs progress and development in mathematics. Inform teachers of how you view your childs strengths and abilities in math. We would like to hear from you!
Parent involvement matters:

Students, parents, teachers: All responsible for student success in mathematics!
There is a new way of teaching and learning mathematics!
- We encourage students to come up with their own answers and think for themselves.
- We want students to have fun exploring and discovering how they arrive at the answer. We need to make math fun and enjoyable for all types of learners.
- Math is important to know for real world experiences and problem solving
All education needs to be individualized and geared towards setting individual students up for success.
- Allowing students to problem solve in ways that makes sense to them is a much more effective strategy of teaching. When students rely on developing their own methods of problem solving, they are more likely to remember their own process.
- Ask open ended questions, when working with your child.
- Encourage your child to believe in themselves. They are capable of solving math problems. Let them apply their own strategies and use their own ideas when working towards finding solutions.
We recommend students practice their math skills through playing online educational math games and virtual learning tools. There are an abundant amount of easily accessible and free online games such as prodigy that would enhance student learning experiences in mathematics and speak to a variety of student interests.
Avoid transferring fears of mathematics! The new way of learning is easier to understand, remember, and have fun with!
Help point out to your child times when we use mathematics in daily life!
Learning is often camouflaged with fun! Many board, card, and family games use mathematics as a foundation. Perhaps start up a family game night.
