User-Friendly Math for Parents Learning and Understanding the Language of Numbers Is Key

User-Friendly Math for Parents Learning and Understanding the Language of Numbers Is Key

Author: Catheryne Draper Format: Hardback Release Date: 09/06/2017

User-Friendly Numbers in Math for Parents shares stories of students' reasoning, thinking, and sometimes misunderstandings about numbers - stories that provide the opportunity to see math differently. Most of the students are visual-spatial, creative, daydreamers who may miss the details in math, a characteristic of visual-spatial learners. Through these stories, parents will see mathematics through their child's eyes, both the clarity and the confusion. Armed with this new sight, and therefore insight, parents will be able to talk differently with their child about the number language of math. By seeing numbers through new eyes, children and parents can take control of the math language and therefore, the mathematics. This book focuses more on the why reasons behind math number relationships, explained in plain English and with images that show number relationships. By including more images and fewer formulas, readers - especially the visual spatial learners - have a better chance of understanding how number organizers apply to different number types. Recognizing connections among number formats significantly reduces the impatience, frustration, and heartache around homework.

Narrowing the Achievement Gap Parental Engagement with Children's Learning

Narrowing the Achievement Gap Parental Engagement with Children's Learning

Author: Janet (University of Bath, UK) Goodall Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/05/2017

Narrowing the Achievement Gap proposes a radical change to our conception of learning, education and schooling, arguing that parental engagement is the best lever we have for school improvement and closing the achievement gap. Unique in its focus on original research linking underachievement and parental engagement, this book uses a range of international case studies to demonstrate that achievement isn't only reliant on what happens in school and that what happens out of school is equally important. Each chapter explores how schools can actively engage with parents and communities to reinstate education in the home, and to generate support to combat issues out of their control, including poverty, deprivation, and a lack of social capital. Although schools have an integral part to play in this process, it argues that parents and society must reconsider their own educational responsibility, regardless of background, and offers a solid research base and practical suggestions to help do so. Consisting of an in-depth and contemporary study of this significant issue in educational achievement and written by an expert in the field, this text will appeal to researchers, academics and postgraduate students in the fields of education, schooling, sociology of education, school effectiveness and improvement, school policy and school leadership.
