Summary
Why doesn't my child understand math? How can I help my child with this if I don't even understand it? Why does't the textbook took like it used to? Questions like these vex even the most educated parents. This book is for any parent who has ever felt baffled, frustrated, angry, or fearful when trying to help their child with math. Middle School Math for Parents, which addresses the major concepts in the Common Core State Standards for grades 6-8, helps parents understand the new methods of teaching mathematics while reviewing middle school math concepts in a clear and friendly way. It includes strategies for every parent-from the parent who never understood the concepts in the first place to the PhD who can't see eye-to-eye with the child's teacher about instructional methods. Written by a national board-certified expert with 12 years of experience, Middle School Math for Parents: Talks to parents on a friendly level, breaking down "new" math and teaching methods in clear, direct language. Answers the question, "Will I ever have to use this in real life?" (The answer is yes! You'll find out why.) Targets math-phobic parents (and parents of math-phobic kids)-and explains why you should never tell your child that you're scared of math. Is packed with sample questions, worked out step-by-step, in the methods used in today's classrooms for key math topics including basic math, algebra, geometry, data and statistics, and more.
