Mathematics at home does not need to be formal pencil/paper instruction. You can support learning through playing games and by talking about math in day-to-day events. Provide opportunities in counting, reading numbers, comparing numbers and quantities, adding/subtracting and multiplying/dividing. Encouraging your child to explain how he/she arrived at the answer can provide great information into their thinking.
Parents can specifically help their children in several key areas outlined below:
KINDERGARTEN: Counting and identifying numbers through 32; one-to-one correspondence or knowing "how many" there are in a certain number.
GRADE 1: Practice addition and subtraction facts of numbers through 10; counting backwards at different points through 120; counting by 2's, 5's and 10's.
GRADE 2: Practice addition of facts of numbers through 20; reading and identifying numbers up to 10,000.
GRADE 3: Practice addition and subtraction facts through 20; beginning multiplication facts through 10; reading and identifying numbers through 100,000.
GRADE 4: Practice multiplication and division facts through 10; reading and identifying numbers up to 1,000,000.
