Parents want to be supportive of math education. But they often feel frustration when they don't recognize the kind of instruction their children are getting and can't help them at home. The best way to guide parents toward an understanding of how their kids are learning is by engaging them in the very same mathematics students are experiencing at school. With the "Supporting School Mathematics" series, you'll find six comprehensive workshop modules for effectively engaging with parents or any stakeholder in mathematics education.

The six sessions of "Supporting School Mathematics" each use explicit, thorough, hands-on examples to illustrate how key aspects of your math curriculum work. Parents will come to understand: what it means to teach for understanding and how meaningful, challenging, and engaging this type of learning iswhy and how the focus of instruction is different than traditional mathematics teachinghow basic facts are both explicitly and implicitly addressedhow to extend to home what students learn at school.Each "Supporting School Mathematics" package includes everything you need to conduct a successful parent workshop: a planning handbook that offers general advice on presenting mathematical content and even provides you a Q-and-A section featuring the questions you are most likely to get and good answers to thema module that includes scripts, content-specific talking points, overheads, and handouts that help audience members understand how their children are learning and discover new ways of helping them at homea CD that contains ready-to-print files for the overheads as well as printable versions of the handouts in both English and Spanish.The six workshops inthe "Supporting School Mathematics" series help you demonstrate for parents the most important aspects of any mathematics curriculum: "Helping with Math at Home: Ideas for Parents"
