Most parents know that the most important thing they can do to help their kids learn to read is to read with them. But what's the mathematical equivalent to reading aloud? Beyond Facts and Flashcards presents games and activities that parents and their children can play together. Everyday family activities—using coupons, folding laundry, calculating the average number of cans your family recycles, and many more—become fun learning opportunities in math.
In addition to the activities, the book tells parents of elementary students what is reasonable for a child to understand, how to ask questions that support children's learning, and what to look for in a math class.
