New At-Home Math Resource for Parents

November 8, 2003

A free English/Spanish Web resource offers ten activities that help parents of elementary-aged children do math with their children as a part of everyday routines such as cleaning up, sharing fairly, or getting somewhere on time. “At Home with Math/Diez Actividades Cotidianas para Padres y Niños” engages children in arithmetic, estimation, measurement, problem-solving, and other important math skills—in the context of ordinary life at home.

“At Home with Math” was created by TERC, developer of the widely-adopted elementary mathematics curriculum Investigations in Data, Number and Space®, in collaboration with Ceridian Performance Partners. Designed for children ages 5-11 and their parents, the activities are available in .pdf format.

Development of "At Home with Math" was funded by the National Science Foundation. “At Home with Math/Diez Actividades Cotidianas para Padres y Niños” can be downloaded now at athomewithmath.terc.edu.
