Speak Math to Your Kids

October 16, 2016

 

 

Parents usually feel comfortable speaking to their children about letters, words, and sentences, but what about speaking to them about numbers, fractions, and decimals?  There are studies that support the notion that speaking math at home can predict math achievement in school. 

 

Studies indicate that the frequency of "number talk" had a significant impact on how well school children understood basic mathematical concepts.  

 

Annie Murphy Paul does an excellent job in summarizing some of the more significant findings in some studies related to math dialogue at home.  You can read her article at WiredAcademic.com by clicking here.

 

Cheers,
