This book gave me a different perspective on how best to encourage my kids to enjoy math Previously I thought that having my kids to various math problems over over until they were comfortable with it was the best method The author instead touts giving kids much fewer but difficult problems and not with the intention that the kids should even get it right but rather that they are intellectually curious enough to want to try to figure out a solution Also she encourages parents to find math in the everyday She compares having the kids solve real world math problems like having kids learn reading by reading tax forms What child would be motivated by that I hope to take these lessons to heart and try to bring math into our everyday conversations without the threat of being wrong

characters Math Power: How to Help Your Child Love Math, Even if You Don't review Math Power: How to Help Your Child Love Math, Even if You Don't 103 download ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Â Patricia Clark Kenschaft You may be shocked to learn that in America twenty four states have no math reuirements at all for prospective elementary school teachers Until states reuire their teachers to learn math parents are their children's primary hopePat Kenschaft a mathematician and mother of two believes that although math phobia is rampant it is unnecessary With this guide any child can overcome mediocre math teaching in school and parental math anxiety at home Kenschaft. This book may have been better divided into separate books since some of the content is directed towards parents and the rest of it towards educators although parents can still gain a lot from that as well particularly if they want to promote change within their school district Despite being published over a decade ago much of what is presented here about the state of math is still relevant today aside from Common Core particularly Drill and Kill and standardized testing I could personally relate to her concept of the fifth grade crisis and even though anecdotal I experienced a drop in math interest around that time too much drilling too much testing and no advancement or acceleration I found myself nodding along to most of what was shared and especially agree and support the concept of a school system that works for ALL children regardless of level Before I had read this book I have been tossing around an idea what if school wasn t based on grades but instead presented in levels Students would move at their own pace through those levels regardless of age The author seemed to present a similar ideaThe book also shares various tips for parents to incorporate math at home in a fun organic way which is worthwhile in itself Although many parents or homeschoolers may want to seek out other books and resources to help them generate ideas one of the appendices lists several resources although I m not sure which are updatedMy main issue with this book is the author s seeming issue with giftedness Although she recommends utilizing gifted enrichment programs for children who aren t being fully served in school she states that gifted programs in school should be cut Except she doesn t seem to understand that many gifted and talented or highly capable programs aren t actually doing an adeuate job serving these students anyway It is a common myth to assume that these students are fine and don t need extra support and there is a distinction between bright and gifted because of the latter s many social and emotional needs as well However I completely agree with the author that ALL children of all abilities and levels need eual learning opportunities but how that looks will vary for every student or group of students Is it possible in schools Perhaps with smaller classes support better educator training among other things some of which are discussed in this book as well and then if that were the case perhaps gifted programming wouldn t be necessaryWith those caveats in mind I would recommend this book to parents hoping to see math in a better light so they can share math positively with their kids
