    The activities and suggested questions for parents to pose will surely heighten children's awareness of mathematics in daily living. It will also help parents experience important mathematics in a way that they can appreciate and thus help support changes in the current school curriculum.

    —Teaching Children Mathematics

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? Up until now, parents have had few models for helping their children understand math. And most existing models are limited to repetitive workbooks and flashcards.

In Beyond Facts & Flashcards, Jan Mokros shows parents how to transform the family's involvement in mathematics to help children see the big picture. The book provides answers to questions such as:

  • What mathematical skills should children be developing now to equip them for the future?
  • How can parents help children develop these skills?
  • How can parents and teachers work together to ensure that children are doing more than a narrowly-defined study of "bookkeeping" math?

Beyond Facts & Flashcards not only presents lots of games and activities that parents and their children can play together, it also describes how the activities relate to mathematics, what's reasonable to expect a child to understand, and how to ask questions that elicit and support children's learning. This is an excellent resource to recommend to parents of primary and elementary students.
