Parents who are positively involved with their children and want the best for them will make sure their children are keeping up with their math skills and are successful in school.
There was a time that the United States of America had some of the highest mathematic scores in the world for students in grades k through 12. A lot has changes since those days, and in order to help children get back on the path to being good mathematical students parents need to play an important role.
Parents can assist with developing a lot of the fundamental skills needed for children to succeed in math when they attend school. Parents can do things that will support the schools and hopefully the schools will do the rest.
In addition to mental math activities, children should be given grade level mathematics workbooks to strengthen their math skills. Parents should have these books and other subject content books at home for additional practice and homework. These can be purchased from bookstores, teacher supply stores and multiple-purpose department stores where school or office supplies are sold.
