You may be shocked to learn that in America today, twenty-four states have no math requirements at all for prospective elementary school teachers. Until states require their teachers to learn more math, parents are their children's primary hope. Dynamic mathematician Pat Kenschaft believes that although math phobia is rampant, it is also unnecessary. With this guide any child can overcome mediocre math teaching in school and parental math anxiety at home. Kenschaft shares with parents her strategies for understanding and teaching math concepts, explaining what math is and how it works. Her lively techniques for understanding math--through games, questions, and conversations, as well as specific math activities--can help preschoolers to ten-year-olds develop math ability.
