Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Any child can overcome the disadvantages of mediocre math teaching in school and parental math anxiety at home. Math Power offers easy-to-follow and concrete strategies for teaching math concepts. These lively techniques — including games, questions, conversations, and specific math activities — are suitable for children from preschool to age 10.

Author Patricia Clark Kenschaft maintains that rote learning and standardized testing weaken children's natural love of learning, and she shows how parents can effectively supplement students' math education. Her critically acclaimed guide is particularly valuable to homeschoolers, offering all parents the tools they need to help children achieve academic and real-world success.

"Should be required reading for all parents of elementary schoolchildren." — Max A. Sobel, former President, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics

"I hope many parents will read this valuable book. It shows how parents can set positive switches in their kids that will help them enjoy mathematics both in school and out." — Henry Pollack, former President, Mathematical Association of America

Patricia Clark Kenschaft is professor emerita of mathematics at Montclair State University, where she was a professor of mathematics for thirty-two years. The mother of two grown children, Pat Kenschaft has taught mathematics to hundreds of elementary school children. She is the author or coauthor of five college mathematics textbooks, as well as the author of more than eighty published articles and the book Change Is Possible: Stories of Women and Minorities in Mathematics.

Synopsis:

Critically acclaimed and commercially successful, this resource is packed with useful information and instruction. Features proven teaching techniques, games, and more. Suitable for parents of children from preschool to age 10. 2006 edition.
