Family Numeracy: A Mind for MATHEMATICS

Family Numeracy: A Mind for MATHEMATICS
"Film is one of the three universal languages, the other two: mathematics and music." ~ Frank Capra

How do parents contribute to developing 21st Century skills (i.e. critical thinking, problem-solving, reasoning ability and the ability to communicate mathematically) in their children? The resources published on this page will help parents to raise confident children with strong math-abilities.
  • Build strong, positive attitudes about mathematics. When children feel positively engaged and successful, they are more likely to stick with an activity or a problem to find a solution.
  • Begin with activities that meet your child’s level of mathematical understanding. Early success in solving problems will build your child’s confidence. Gradually move to activities that provide more challenges for your child.
  • If you and your child are more comfortable in a language other than English, use it.
